Coronavirus (Covid-19) & i2c tennis
INFORMATION UPDATE 19.3.20 - Coaching program and Camp bookings information
Firstly, thank you all for your support and patience during this testing time. We really appreciate all the positive comments and encouragement we have received over the last week or so. After much thought and deliberation we have decided to suspend all group coaching from Friday 20th March.
What we are offering instead:
Over the next 2 weeks (until Friday 3 April, unless advice changes) we will offer 30 minute 1:1 lessons for you/your child with their coach. These are to be arranged directly with the coach themselves at a mutually convenient time.
The cost of these sessions will be covered in the Direct Debit that you have paid for March
We can provide a safe environment for coaching to take place, following current government advice, where interactions with others are minimal. So, you/your child still gets the benefit of exercise, fresh air and a much-needed change of scenery and the coaches can continue to work.
Our fantastic coaches are all self-employed and rely on their monthly income from your Direct Debits. We would greatly appreciate it if you would not cancel any DD payments at this time. Any sessions that are missed in the coming months due to Coronavirus WILL be made up when we're fully operational again and this will give us a fighting chance of sustaining our programmes and coaches throughout these unprecedented times.
As you are aware our coaching is scheduled to run for 45 weeks of the year guaranteed if inside or if outside you pay for 40 weeks. This payment is then split into 12 equal monthly instalments. If outside, The 5 weeks out of the 45 that you don't pay for are to allow for weather cancellations and other unforeseen circumstances that arise. Additionally all coaching we deliver have 3 coaching breaks - 2 weeks at Christmas, 2 at Easter and 2 at the end of the summer holidays, plus the coaches can take an additional week during the course of the year.
The next scheduled coaching break is over the Easter school holidays from Monday 6 - Sunday 19 April and during this period no coaching will take place.
Easter holiday camps
We have taken the tough decision to cancel our Easter tennis camps and any bookings will be refunded over the next few days. A decision will be made on May half term as events unfold!
To keep your tennis going we are providing free online activities, exercises and resources for you to use at home. If you need to borrow rackets and balls please ask - we are happy to loan these out.
