Tennis Mix-in Sessions

Playing tennis at The Limpsfield Club Playing tennis by floodlights at The Limpsfield Club

Club Mix-ins are free and the club funds floodlights for the evening mix-in sessions ( Tuesday and Thursday evenings )
Mix-ins aim to allow everyone the opportunity to enjoy a number of games with a variety of partners and opposition.
At all mix-ins, everyone comes off court together every 40 minutes and one of the players (the organiser) assists with the re-direction of players to courts for the next match (typically winners up and split, losers down and split).
It is important that players commit to the full 2 hour mix-in and both arrive on time and do not leave early unless they have a replacement.

Ratings

The club adopts a coach-enforced rating and play-in system. There are three principle ratings:

  • Green (Top team players and equivalent)
  • Orange
  • Red
  • Below Standard (beginners and improvers)

The purpose of this rating system is to openly gauge our members' ability and be able to better align players based on ability for both coached sessions as well as social play (Mix-ins and American Tournaments for example).
All new members are "played in" to better meet expectations and to permit the coaching staff to explain what mix-ins, events or coaching sessions are available to a new member.
Existing members are able to book a session with Andy Burgoyne to be rated or re-rated, there is a sign-up sheet on the Tennis notice board.
Please note, players are permitted to play "down" in rating (but not play up), in doing so the member will accept that the minimum level may be lower than their rating. It is thoroughly encouraged that players do play down and come to as many mix-ins or events as possible to maintain a balance between competitive and social play.

ClubSys

All Mix-ins function on a sign-up basis in order to help the club manage attendance and court allocation as well as to track floodlight payment when required.
You will be able to log into Clubsys and enter your name into the relevant mix-in at any time, either online or on the club screens. Please rest assured, members can always just turn up, sign-up and play on the day. If you have any difficulties, we hope you will ask other players, the Office or Committee members to help you with signing-up.
During the winter season is more important that members sign-up in order to secure their place otherwise the mix-in may become full due to a lack of floodlit court availability. Please remember to cancel any booking if you are no longer able to play.
