December update

Hi All, been a month of problems following the site being hacked. It is taking a while to clear completely so our apologies for any inconvenience caused by the ‘diverts’ to other sites that were happening – be assured it is not your PC.

Anyone seeing any odd behaviour on the website please let me know – we now have a company called Sucuri who fix any issues.

Dear Members,
Once renewals are complete we will be starting to use the Fastcourts system for all court bookings – the sheets on the notice boards will disappear.
You should all receive an email welcoming you to the booking system.
Currently all members are in a suspended state until the beginning of May but please take a look at the site so you are familiar with it.
The password allocated needs to be remembered so keep the email handy and make a note of your system password for when you want to book a court
Please note the blocked out times for Coaching and Club Social Sessions have been added so the on line system will be the same as we are used to on the notice board.
Later we will add the match times so you will also see when you can play during the YLTA tennis season.
