Rescheduled Matches
Due to the Beast from the East (as well as a lot of previous nasty weather) there will be a heavy match fixture schedule during April, while all the teams try to get their rescheduled matches played.
We have our own collision of re-arranged winter Aylesbury & District and Bucks Shield fixtures, the start of the summer Bucks Shield fixtures (with 13 teams!!), and the kick of Mens and Ladies Team Tennis fixtures (ex Aegon) which use 4 courts for singles matches. Matches will be played on clay, acrylic and tarmac courts to ensure we can fit all matches in.

We will keep the fixture list updated and on the website. The latest version can be seen by following "read more" below. 
Please check it out before heading down to the club especially at weekends, while we try to catch up.
Thanks all for your patience and understanding and we hope it doesn't disrupt your play too much.
