At present, advice from the LTA is that there is no reason people should stop doing their daily sport and physical activities as they normally would, and so tennis activities can continue as normal.
However, in light of the statements issued by some sporting governing bodies, we wanted you to know that Congleton Lawn Tennis Club will do whatever it can to limit the risk of spreading infection. We will:
Increase our cleaning routines
Open windows and doors regularly
Provide sanitiser in the foyer
Hold committee meetings to discuss and review our plans
Communicate decisions to the members.
With the rapidly changing situation, further advice may follow in due course. Consequently, the use of the Clubhouse may change significantly:
Until further notice
*Members are asked to use the clubhouse as little as possible, to wash hands and to use toilet facilities only.
*Avoid shaking hands at the end of games.
*Do not attend the club if they are in anyway feeling unwell.
*Where possible use an alcohol based hand sanitiser regularly while on court.
This guidance will change as the situation progresses.
HOW TO AVOID CATCHING OR SPREADING CORONAVIRUS
The Government advice is as follows
Wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds.
Always wash your hands when you arrive and leave the clubhouse.
Wash your hands before you eat or handle food.
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze.
Put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards.
Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.
CLTC will continue to align its position with advice from the Government, NHS and other sporting bodies.
