Welcome to Codicote Lawn Tennis Club

COVID-19 UPDATE

On 19 July 2021 the UK has  moved to Step 4 of the Government roadmap, meaning that most legal restrictions have been lifted. There are no longer any restrictions on how many people can take part in tennis activity, indoors or outdoors.

The Government has published guidance for the public and sports providers on how to organise and participate safely in sporting activity.

Tennis remains a naturally socially distant sport and relatively low risk activity. However, players should take the following steps to reduce the risk of transmission when attending and participating in tennis activity.

1. Check for COVID-19 symptoms. Before attending any tennis activity, players (like officials, volunteers and coaches) should self-assess for symptoms of COVID-19. These are:

  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough
  • a loss of, or change to, your sense of smell or taste

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.

 2. Follow your provider’s safety measures. The venue you are attending, coach or provider may put in place safety measures, which could include asking you to ‘check in’ using the NHS app to scan their QR code, supporting NHS Test and Trace.  Whilst this is no longer a legal requirement for venues or participants, it can support NHS Test and Trace and reduce risk of transmission of the virus.

 3. Take part safely. 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.

 

Introduction

Codicote Tennis Club is a British Tennis Venue with the LTA and meets the LTA’s Minimum Safeguarding Standards, a building block to ensure a safe and inclusive venue.  We are a fully inclusive club and offer tennis for all irrelevant of age, ability and financial circumstances. Established in 1967 the club has grown and developed significantly and now has three floodlight courts with over 100 players, both adult and juniors, representing the club in competitive matches as well as a similar number of players who prefer to play socially.   It is this balance that makes us different from the larger tennis centres across Hertfordshire and helps us create a fantastic social atmosphere.

We are proud achievers of the LTA Tennismark status - a best practice accreditation implemented by Sports England which means Codicote Tennis Club maintains good standards and operates best practice.

 

COURT RESURFACING 

We successfully raised £13,000 of external funding in 2020 which together with our own resources (sinking fund) had meant we had sufficient funds to resurfacing all 3 courts with Artifical Grass surface (Advantage Pro Tiger Turf), and replace the fencing for courts 2&3.   The work has been completed and the courts are now payable - ENJOY.
