Welcome to Freshford and District Tennis Club

Freshford & District Tennis Club

We are a friendly and sociable tennis club for all ages for residents of Freshford and surrounding area.

The club has a Professional LTA Coach who can provide lessons as well as professional racket stringing service for all - more details on the coaching page.

Club sessions operate on a Tuesday evening from 6pm - 8pm and Sunday afternoon from 2pm - 4pm and we very much welcome players of all standards to attend.

The club has two teams in the Chippenham and District league - ladies doubles and mixed doubles. Please see the Teams page for more information.

If you are interested in trying out the courts before taking out membership or you simply want to enjoy an occasional game without commitment, then the courts can be booked on a ‘pay and play’ basis at a cost of £6/hr.  To make a court booking on our website, you will need first to register with ClubSpark https://clubspark.lta.org.uk/Account/SignUp?source=ch.   To provide priority for booking slots to our members, pay and play bookings are restricted to 2 days in advance of the booking.

NO MORE THAN ONE ONE-HOUR PAY-AND-PLAY BOOKING PER DAY TO BE MADE BY ONE PERSON, PLEASE.

Call 07771 727317 (Peter Davis) or 07770 585518 (Ian Barnes) to obtain a code for the gate entry.

NOTE: FROM 13 MAY 2020, GOVERNMENT ADVICE ALLOWS THE COURTS TO BE USED FOR SINGLES PLAY ONLY BETWEEN MEMBERS OF DIFFERENT HOUSEHOLDS OR FOR DOUBLES PLAY BETWEEN MEMBERS OF THE SAME HOUSEHOLD.

READ THE LTA ADVICE FOR PLAYERS ON https://clubspark.lta.org.uk/FreshfordandDistrictTennisClub/Admin/Website/Home 

WASH YOUR HANDS FOR 2 MINUTES WITH SOAP AND WATER BEFORE YOU LEAVE HOME AND IMMEDIATELY AFTER YOU RETURN HOME.

ENTER AND EXIT THE COURTS USING THE ENTRANCE CLOSEST TO YOUR COURT.  DON'T LINGER OR SOCIALISE AROUND THE OUTSIDE OF THE COURTS.

THE ENTRANCE GATES TO THE COURT HAVE BEEN PINNED OPEN TO AVOID THE NEED TO TOUCH HANDLES OR LOCKS TO ENTER THE COURTS.  LEAVE THE GATES OPEN AT ALL TIMES. 

THE RUBBISH BINS HAVE BEEN REMOVED FROM THE COURTS.  TAKE ALL YOUR RUBBISH AWAY WITH YOU.   DON'T LEAVE ANYTHING ON THE COURTS WHICH OTHERS THEN MAY HAVE TO PICK UP (E.G. CLOTHING).

MAINTAIN 2M PHYSICAL DISTANCING AT ALL TIMES.  CIRCULATE AROUND OPPOSITE SIDES OF THE NET WHEN CHANGING ENDS. 

USE NEW BALLS AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE.  MARK THE BALLS WITH YOUR INITIALS.   DO NOT PICK UP BALLS THAT ARE NOT YOUR OWN (USE A RACQUET TO MOVE THEM).

IF YOU CAN, WEAR GLOVES WHEN PLAYING WITH OTHERS NOT OF YOUR OWN HOUSEHOLD.  AVOID TOUCHING YOUR FACE.

DO NOT PLAY IF YOU ARE FEELING AT ALL UNWELL OR IF ANY MEMBER OF YOUR HOUSEHOLD IS DISPLAYING SYMTOMS OF COVID-19.  IF THIS IS THE CASE, YOU MUST STAY AT HOME.

USE YOUR COMMON SENSE TO LIMIT THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS SO YOU AND OTHERS WILL BE ABLE TO CONTINUE TO PLAY TENNIS.  WE ARE VERY LUCKY TO HAVE THIS OPPORTUNITY AGAIN!  STAY SAFE.  ENJOY THE SUMMER!
