***COVID-19 UPDATE - 11th March 2021***

The courts will be opening on the 29th March, provided there are no changes to the current easing of restrictions. We are awaiting an update from the LTA on guidelines to be implemented and we are expecting those around the 22nd March. We will provide this update as soon as we have it.

The disabled toilet will be open during the day and members will need their key-cards to access. We are looking for volunteers to assist with the cleaning again, please speak to Jenny if you can spare a bit of time [email protected]

Court Booking - IMPORTANT

We are tweaking the court booking process for reopening. The new rules are as follows:

  • No members can play unless they have booked a court.
  • We have removed the 15-minute changeover slots. This now means that you can book a time that doesn't overlap multiple slots and gives you more flexibility on start times.
  • Courts can be booked for a maximum of 2 hours.
  • We are asking all members to vacate their court 5 minutes before the end of their scheduled play, to allow the next players to start their session on time - please be courteous and help us with this!
  • You can book courts up to 15 days in advance.
  • If you wish to play beyond the 2 hours you have booked, you must only do so as you approach the end of your current slot and provided nobody else is due on that court.
  • Multiple bookings or bending of the rules, the committee reserve the right to cancel bookings (please play fair, we're trying our best to make sure this works for all!).

The court bookings will start to release from this coming Sunday and up to 15 days in advance only.

If you have any issues in using the system, please email [email protected]

***COVID-19 UPDATE - 4th January 2021***

All courts and facilities are currently closed. We will update all members when we are able to safely return to tennis. In the meantime, if you have any questions or queries, please email [email protected] 

 

 

 

***COVID-19 UPDATE 31st December 2020***

Following guidance from the government and the LTA with regards to a return to playing tennis, Beauchief Tennis Club are now fully operational with the following measures in place.

 

The guidance from the LTA for venues, coaches and players can be found on the following link.

https://www.lta.org.uk/about-us/tennis-news/news-and-opinion/general-news/2020/march/coronavirus-covid-19---latest-advice/

 

We urge every player to read this in detail, as it is essential, for the health and safety of all members, that everyone follows the rules explicitly.

So here are the rules for BTC:

Courts - We have opened all courts 1although some of the gates remain close and you'll have to walk around. This is to limit "walk throughs" of other courts and for us to be able to keep the main gates open at all times. 

Booking system - No member will be permitted to play unless they have booked a slot, this is really important in following the LTA guidelines.

Time slots will be limited to 90 minutes each. We have allowed a 15 minute "change over" period where courts will not be available to book.

It is imperative that players arrive ready to play on time and leave as soon as there slot is over.

If you have any problems booking a court via the website or Clubspark booking app, please email [email protected]

Clubhouse -  The Clubhouse has now reopened for toilet use only. The single disabled toilet is available to players that have a key card.

Gates - Gates have been removed but some remain shut to improve the flow of people around the courts.

Nets - The nets will be set to the correct level at all times. Please do not let them down at the end of play or adjust them at all.

Who can play? - Firstly, all playing members that renewed their playing membership in July this year. No guests will be permitted to play under any circumstances.

In line with LTA guidance, singles and doubles matches can now take place and there is no requirement to label individual balls.

All members under 13 that wish to play singles with another player from outside the household, must have an adult supervising from a safe distance.

Balls - please do not leave balls on the court after play. If a ball has landed in another court during play, please retrieve it at your earliest convenience.

Social Areas & Spectators -  All social areas are now open but subject to Government social distancing rules.

Sanitizers -  All players should bring their own hand sanitizers and use them before entering and on leaving the court. However, sanitizers have been placed at the entrance to all courts and in the main foyer area.

Rubbish -  please take all rubbish with you and don't leave anything on court or in the bins, including tissues, tubes or any overgrips.

Toilets -  these are now open to members and players playing S&D matches. Please use the sanitization equipment provided to wipe down surfaces after every use. Our toilets are also deep cleaned daily.

Coaching - coaching sessions are now in place and should be booked through the coaching website.

Memberships - we are now accepting applications from new members. All enquiries should be directed to Simon Lewis - [email protected] 

 

It's fair to say that this has taken a huge amount of work for the committee to put this together, so please help us and your fellow members to stick to these rules for everyone's health and well being.
