2022 Diary



Members should book a lawn by contacting Bryan Harral. Days and times when the lawns are pre-booked are as follows:

Wednesday morning: GC, 4 lawns (more regular bookings to follow)

Mowing takes priority, and players should be prepared to swap lawns or pause as necessary.

Anyone organising home matches or any other events should check lawn availability with both Bryan and Tim Brewer in advance, and they will be added to the Diary (which is not updated in real time) as soon as possible.

CA tournaments and courses are listed in more detail on the Wrest Park page on the CA website - go to Play - Clubs - Club Details.

English Heritage events: Play is permitted on EH event days, shown below in italics. If the playing field is roped off and there are stewards directing traffic you must use the public parking area - do not park next to the pavilion.
