ACCIDENT AND INSURANCE

Players should exercise due care when playing on the courts and should not play if they are suffering from a medical condition which may put them at risk or if they are feeling unwell. Appropriate footwear should always be worn.

A first aid box is kept in the Pavilion or in the locker on the courts (with the same code as for the gate) for use by players in case of accident and a defibrillator is available on the wall of the Pavilion

As an LTA registered affiliate, the Club has public liability insurance cover through the LTA

In the event of a serious accident, details should be inserted in the Accident Report Book (kept in the Pavilion or in the locker on the courts) and communicated in writing to [email protected] for action by the Committee

Members’ belongings are brought to the courts at their own risk.

 


WIMBLEDON TICKETS

The Club is affiliated to the LTA, one of the advantages of which is that the Club is allocated tickets for the Wimbledon Championships.  The allocation normally comes out in late March.  No announcement has yet been made about ticket availability for Wimbledon 2021

If tickets are made available for this year,  members who have 'opted in' (through the LTA web site) will be invited to attend the annual tennis club ballot (normally April).   Members who are successful will be allocated a pair of tickets. 


Eligibility.  To enter the ballot you must be a fully paid-up member of the Club (but not just a Social member) for the relevant year as well as being  an LTA/ British Tennis Member (BTM).  Registration for this is granted free by the LTA to affiliated clubs (like Fernhurst) via a reasonably straightforward on-line system on the LTA website.

Ballot Date: This has not yet been confirmed for 2021. 

Conduct of the Ballot: All  eligible members will be advised of the tickets allocated to the Club.

One by one, successful members can choose from the tickets still available as the ballot progresses.  

For members drawn early, they will have more choice of dates and prices.   

If members are unable to attend the draw they can nominate another member to act as their designated proxy on the day.  

The first name out of the hat will be offered the pick of the tickets and that name will not go back into the hat.  The process will continue until all tickets have been drawn.  A number of reserve names will also be drawn.

Payment
.  Payment will be required to be made directly to the LTA within 14 days of the ballot using their on-line system. Details will be sent  (by email) by the LTA to each successful member.  If a  payment is not received then the tickets will be offered to the first-drawn reserve and others onwards.

Additional tickets. Sometimes extra tickets become available after the main ballot has been drawn.  These will be offered first to the reserve names drawn at the main ballot and, if not taken up, offered generally to all eligible members on a first come, first served basis.

Organisers (2021): The Club ballot organisers are Antonia Plant and Felicity Roe
