A lot of UK clubs will have two or three evenings/weekend mornings set aside as adult social play, where all the courts are booked up. Because of the frequency and booked up courts, they usually bring out a large enough number of players to give you a good feel for the club.

Of course, the very top players never go to these social nights. But, if a club has a good number of solid players, you'll see at least a few of them at the social nights/days. If the club has a large number of social nights every week and you don't see any good players there, it's a bad sign.
