Coronavirus: all social and competitive club play is suspended until further notice
Development of a new pavilion for the club has now been agreed with Watford Borough Council, and an order placed. The building is expected to be located adjacent to court 1. It is of a modular design, with the majority of the construction taking place in a factory off-site. Installation should start early in 2020 and take around a month.
The building is about 8m x 4.5m. The design includes an internal kitchen area and a toilet with external access, plus provision of water and electricity, though the timing of the connection of these services is yet to be clarified.
