CORONAVIRUS – NEWS UPDATE FOR ALL FTC MEMBERS 31, December 2020

 

 Hello all Fairford Tennis Club members

 

Following the latest news concerning Gloucestershire moving to Tier 4, I am writing to inform you of our revised policy and procedures for continuing the operation of our tennis facilities.  I want to reassure everyone that we are taking all precautions necessary to keep you safe whilst continuing to keep our courts open for play and coaching.

Everyone will need to keep the Government guidelines on social distancing and self - isolation in mind, particularly if you have vulnerable people at home. Please make yourself aware of the latest LTA guidancewww.lta.org.uk/coronavirus.  The tennis hut will be out of bounds, apart from authorised users, so please bring your own drinking cups and ensure you wash your hands before and after play.

In summary, please note:

Only singles play will be allowed apart from families in their “bubble”.

All bookings must be made online and completed fully, with all participants’ names, before play can commence.

No visitors are allowed.

 

I would like to take this opportunity of thanking everyone for their continued support of the Club.  Despite COVID 19, we have had a successful year in terms of membership, competition play and coaching.  I realise everyone, like me, must be feeling the tedium and frustration these lockdowns bring but let’s carry on being sensible and keeping safe.

 

Have a happy New Year and let’s look forward to a great spring and summer of tennis at Fairford!
