Coronavirus (Covid-19) Club Usage Guidelines

CAPEL TENNIS CLUB COVID-19 USAGE GUIDELINES

19TH JULY 2021

PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU COMPLY WITH THE FOLLOWING GUIDELINES.


There are no longer any restrictions on how many people can take part in tennis activity, indoors or outdoors.

Tennis remains a naturally socially distant sport and relatively low risk activity. However, undertaking the following key considerations can help to ensure the safety of participants when attending tennis venues for officials, coaches and volunteers, reducing the risk of spreading COVID-19.

If you, or anyone you live with, have one or more of these symptoms you should not attend any sporting activity, even if your symptoms are mild. You should follow NHS guidance on testing and self-isolation. If you have been informed that you need to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace (or are required to self-isolate in relation to travel), you must do so. You should not leave your isolation location in order to participate in sport and physical activity. You can find more information in the NHS guidance on how to self-isolate.

As a socially distant sport, the risk of transmission of COVID-19 whilst participating is low. However, participants should continue to:

  • Follow good hygiene practices, to reduce the risk of transmission in sport environments. Also consider the wishes of other participants (i.e. if they do not wish to shake hands after a match).
  • Avoid sharing water bottles or other refreshment containers. Where possible, you should take your own drink, in a labelled or highly distinguishable container.

Face coverings are no longer required by law, but the government expects and recommends that people should continue to wear them in crowded and enclosed settings, to protect themselves and others.
