Ellesmere Sports Club has 4 Shale Courts. Our shale courts are a bit special. A similar surface to that played on at the French Open, shale courts are now increasingly hard to find and consequently highly prized. Shale is a great surface for beginners and children, as the ball bounces less fast than on tarmac, and older players find it is kinder to their joints.
