Do you WATER your courts before play??

A friendly reminder that even though the weather is getting cooler the courts MUST still be watered on a regular basis.

Most of the court damage is done during the Autumn/Winter months due to people thinking the courts don't need watering. 

The courts may look 'darker' due to dew, or colder nights, but underneath they are usually very dry.  Unless it has recently rained, you should be giving the courts a sprinkle before playing.  This is especially important before ANY Competition, including Night. 

As has been the case for a couple of years now, the baselines will always need more water than the service boxes due to drainage. It is usually easier to have two people doing the watering - one at the tap and one with the hose.  That way you can turn the tap off immeidately if puddles start to form.

Thank you for taking the time to care for your courts.
