Dear Member,

 

Further to guidance announced by the Scottish Government on 28 May 2020, Falkirk Community Trust are pleased to confirm that the tennis courts at Zetland Park and Dollar Park have been reopened for public use. 

 

The safety and wellbeing of our staff and customers is a priority and in order to re-open safely, industry guidance and national regulations have all been taken on board to make the necessary changes for a safe re-opening.

 

We have pulled together guidance notes which are necessary to help things go smoothly during the recovery period and to ensure we can help to keep everyone safe and our courts open for play.  We therefore urge you to follow the changes which have been made across the courts and to adhere to the rules outlined on our web page: https://www.falkirkcommunitytrust.org/sport/tennis/

 

With specific reference to membership, we will be unable to take bookings for time slots at this time and the courts will be opened on a first come basis at this time. Additionally, we are unable to restrict the playing time on the courts at this time and we would encourage all users to be mindful that others may wish to use the facilities.

 

We have reviewed the latest guidance from the Scottish Government, the LTA, Tennis Scotland and the recommendations from HSE. With no handwashing or hand sanitising facilities available at either location this is the only safe way to reopen the facilities.

 

We have taken the decision to freeze all membership categories and court bookings at this time. When the courts can re-open normally we will extend memberships accordingly. Should the current situation be extended significantly we may review this.

 

Please note, guidance can change and restrictions may be reintroduced - ensure you have checked the latest version of the guidelines for tennis players in Scotland on the LTA website and with Tennis Scotland.

 

Thank you for helping to keep everyone safe and our courts open for play.
