Players often go to the closest one, and I’d do the same, so we rotate them to keep the wear equal because you want them to all to be playing the same during the tournaments





renovation to sort that. We increased the amount we scarify, and we verti-cut throughout the summer, which keeps on top of that throughout the year, and it’s gradually coming down. It won’t reduce dramatically in one year, it takes time, so we are continually looking at that.”


“The end of season renovation is a key part for us because, if we don't get it right then, we’re in for a challenging year. We do our renovation in September and it consists of heavily scarifying it all first to get rid of the dead moss, the grass and lateral growth. Over the years, we’ve gradually done more and more of that, and that has helped progress the courts a lot. Then we spike it all and go over it with seed, loam and pre- seeder which obviously helps the grass grow, then we drag it all in and, fingers crossed, it will grow like it has done previously.”


“The development of machinery has been important, and our renovation is where we see most of that. We used to scarify with a walk behind machine, and to do ten courts five or six times in different directions took a long time. Now we’ve got an Allett BJB42 scarifier that picks up all the debris; and we go over with that in four different directions five or six times to really rip it all up. Once we have done that, we cut it and then spike it with a John Deere Aercore to get the moisture and air flowing through the ground. Then we use two tonnes of Kettering court loam to fill out any hollows.”


Cromer has 150 adult members and 120 juniors, as well as teams and tournaments. Because the courts are busy throughout the six months, Matthew is conscious of giving the members as long a season as possible and opens the courts in the middle of April rather than the usual beginning of May. As
