13/04/19 Carpet pathway
The approach to the courts and the area in front of the pavilion has just had the grass replaced with a synthetic grass “carpet”. This will reduce the amount of dirt brought onto the courts on people’s shoes and therefore prolong the life and good appearance of the courts. Players should still remember to wipe their shoes thoroughly before entry, please.
19/01/19 Courts rejuvenated
Our 3 synthetic grass courts have now been rejuvenated by having their sand replaced. This expensive process is required every few years as the sand becomes compacted and dirty which hampers the drainage. Further top ups of the sand will be necessary over the next few weeks as it settles. We will then have our courts back to first class condition. Thanks to those hardy winter players who have had to put up with poor draining courts for the last few weeks.
11/08/18 Thirsk are 2nd division champions
The Harrogate mixed doubles league division 2 has just been won by Thirsk’s first team. With 13 wins and 1 draw they have bounced straight back to division 1 having been relegated last year. Well done to all the players and organisers.
