Tennis at Burnham should be fun for all, and it generally is! But to achieve this, we ask all playing and non-playing members, also parents/guardians of junior members, to observe the relevant
Codes of Practice

When others are waiting to play, all players should observe Byelaws 2.3 and 2.4. Briefly, you are asked not to play Singles if other members are waiting to use a court for Doubles; and when all the courts are occupied, please vacate the court after one short set or 20 minutes.

Please refer to the Programme 2009-10, the Year Round Schedule and the Fixture List to work out when courts are likely to be available for pre-arranged games.

BTA is formally linked to Maidenhead Lawn Tennis Club. Junior members of BTA have the opportunity to participate in matchplay events at Maidenhead LTC. For further details, please contact Nigel Mann.
