Devizes Tennis Club Welcome To

The Club

COVID-19 Update

Following our most recent Committee discussions, the Club hereby makes you aware of the following measures we are taking while we may play tennis.  Please respect these guidelines and follow them closely to ensure your own and your playing partners safety.

 

  • DO NOT play or enter the courts if you are in at ‘at risk’ group.  Consult LTA guidance at www.lta.org.uk for more info.  If you have played recently and have displayed symptoms of COVID-19 follow the Government’s ‘test and trace’ guidelines, which can be read at www.gov.uk
  • Avoid gathering before a game.  Observe correct social distancing of at least 2 METRES from others AT ALL TIMES
  • GROUPS OF UP TO 6 may meet to play either DOUBLES OR SINGLES, following social distancing and playing guidelines
  • Small group coaching (no more than 5 participants + coach) is permitted, following social distancing and playing guidelines.  Coaches will instruct following their own protocol to minimize contact and maintain distancing
  • Fill your water bottle up at home.  The clubhouse is locked and out of bounds except to coaches
  • CLEAN OR WASH YOUR HANDS before you travel to play and afterwards when you get home or use an alcohol gel or wipe
  • Players are encouraged to have their own supply of anti-bacterial hand sanitizer with them to use during play if needed
  • DO NOT touch the gate handles when entering the courts.  Push open and close with your feet  
  • DO NOT share your racket with another player.  Clean and wipe down your rackets before and after play  
  • Place your rackets bags at least 2 METRES from other players
  • DO NOT touch the net, its handle or adjust the height of the net.  The nets have been set to the correct height 
  • DO NOT use the floodlights during this period of play to avoid risk of contact spreading
  • One set of balls are now allowed to be used within a group, however players should take extra care not to touch their face during play and to handle the balls as little as possible.  Your own, marked balls can still be used if you so wish.  Please discuss and agree before your match how you would like to proceed. 
  • TRY NOT to pick up ball that is not yours or your courts ball
  • Players are advised either not to change ends during play or to swap sides on opposite ends of the net
  • DO NOT shake hands when greeting players or on completing play.  Touch your rackets together instead
  • Leave the court gates unlocked so that other players can enter safely later
  • The toilets are locked for the time being.  Please use your own facilities in your home before or after a game

Thank you all for your continued support of the club during this difficult time.  Be well and stay safe.
