Brookside Care

About to play? Invest 5 minutes in watering – for better grip and a more even bounce.

Match finished? Sweep the whole court – especially the runback behind the baseline. Just drag the net behind you like a sled. It’s OK to have the wood scrape over the court, no need to lift it up.

Dusty courts? Spray quickly before sweeping. Just a couple of minutes keeps the dust down.

Heavy rain? Please don’t play until puddles dry. Don’t be tempted to brush the water away.

Can’t see the lines? We now have four new line brushes. Best used on dry courts before watering. Just put them onto the line and walk forwards.
