The tennis club committee met by Zoom on 14th May and have decided we can reopen the tennis courts in a limited way.
Firstly, to play, you must adhere to the LTA Guidelines for Players (which can be seen here).
The LTA guidelines for safe play are summarised: • Max 2 people per court (unless all players are from the same household) • Only handle your own racket and personal (marked) tennis balls • Change ends at opposite ends of the net • Courts must be booked online and there is an app - or if necessary by phone to Gránia (253574), Lyn (252891) or Nick (252836). You will need to be logged on. Courts will be booked for 1 hour, with 15 minutes gap to allow a safe changeover time. Please stick to your times when the courts are busy. • Maintain social distancing (2 metres) at all times • Follow public health guidelines for hygiene • Do not play if you are self-isolating
Please refer to the full LTA guidance.
In addition: • The locks have been changed back to those in use for last year, so your existing key will work. • The clubhouse remains closed. The public toilets at the top of the field are open. • Juniors wishing to play must be accompanied by an adult member of their household. • No fees will be payable at this point. • We will review how things are working in 2 weeks time, and make any necessary amendments. • The committee may have to close the courts at short notice; if so we will email you as quickly as possible.
Despite the restrictions, enjoy your tennis.
