Covid – 19 update

Following the further easing of restrictions in England from 1 June announced by the Prime Minister on Thursday evening (28 May) and the publication of detailed Government guidance on Sunday (31 May), the Government has confirmed what these measures mean in relation to tennis.

We have assembled a set of rules that we ALL need to adhere to for the safety of ourselves and others:  

These developments to the measures are detailed on the Gov.uk website under their guidance for ‘Gatherings, public spaces and and outdoor activities’ (see 1.6) and in their information for the public for the ‘Phased return of outdoor sport and recreation’.

All courts are now available for use and there no longer is a need to book a court. If you are using Courts 1 and 2 please use the bottom gate nearest the Clubhouse, and for Court 4 please the top gate near the top of the car park.

Bring your own tennis balls

The padlocks will be removed from the court gates, so please try and avoid hand contact with the gate handles where possible. Wipe down with anti-bacteria liquid if you have some to hand.

The Clubhouse is cleaned regularly in is available for the following limited use:

To switch on floodlights when necessary

Toilet facilities

No drink making facilities so please bring your own.

Whilst it is difficult with the younger members not being at school, we MUST stress that the club CANNOT be used as a social hangout.

Please enjoy the courts for tennis, play, take with you ALL belongings including rubbish, tennis balls and water bottles. Do not congregate outside the clubhouse and keep your distance when sitting on benches.  Please do not leave tennis balls on the court after use.

Membership renewal and parent restricted membership is available online on the club website for anyone who has not yet rejoined.
