Although our courts drain well, occasional puddles and surface water remain
immediately after the rain. We have Bowdry machines on courts 1 and 8,
which quickly and easily remove surface water from the courts.
Simple to use and effective the foam roller absorbs water in minutes (up to
60litres) without damaging the surface.
In this video, Chris Gerrard (House and Grounds Officer), demonstrates how
to use the Bowdry.
To maintain the machines in good condition and for their longevity it is
important to follow the instructions on how to use the Bowdry. (see HERE or on the machine itself)
Please do not use the Bowdry on the clay courts 4 to 6 because it will collect
all the sand off the surface.
