02/07/2020 - GDT COVID-19 Update – Summer Camp Update

Due to the current restrictions around group sizes we are unsure at this point what our summer camps will look like, which means there may be a chance that camps are unable to go ahead.

We are in regular contact with the LTA who are liaising with the government and when changes are announced we will adapt accordingly.

 

08/06/2020 - GDT COVID-19 Update – Back On Court Phase 2

Following the new LTA Guidelines published on 1st June, we feel that the safety and wellbeing of our players and coaches is paramount. We will therefore be following a more cautious approach with smaller group sizes of 4 Players maximum, to help players get back on court. Due to social distancing requirements, we will not be offering mini red groups for 8 years and under at this time.

If you would like further information or would like to arrange a lesson please contact your coaches directly.

GDTennis Phase 2 - Starting Monday 8th June 2020

  • Small group coaching with a maximum of 4 players.
  • 2 Metres social distancing must be maintained at all times.
  • Players should bring their own tennis rackets - we are not able to hire/loan any equipment at this time.
  • Guardian (non-participant) or carer attendance is permitted, but should be off court and limited to one per child where possible, with social distancing strictly observed while watching the session.
  • Lessons will be organised and paid directly to the coach, ideally via bank transfer.
  • Credits from the January - March term will not be applied during this time. Credits will be received on return to full term bookings.

IMPORTANT: Do not leave your home to play tennis if Government advice means you should stay at home because you or someone you live with has or has had symptoms of COVID-19, or you are in the most vulnerable category and have been advised to shield from the coronavirus. 

 

01/06/2020 - GDT COVID-19 Update – Return to Managed Play

As many of you may have seen on the LTA website, new guidance has been issued for venues, players and coaches which comes into effect as of Monday 1st June.

  • Both singles play and doubles play is now permitted with people from outside of your household, as long as you remain 2 metres apart as far as possible - meaning that four people from different households can now play doubles!
  • Players do not now need to use their own marked tennis balls - however, if you choose to use shared balls then extra care must be taken to ensure you do not touch your face during play, and you should clean your hands before and immediately after finishing
  • Use alcohol gel after touching any court gates, fences, benches etc, and avoid doing so where possible

Coaching in groups of up to 6 (including the coach) will be permitted. GDTennis are looking closely at the coaching programme to assess which elements can return safely. We hope to have some small groups starting from Monday 8th June 2020, however this will be confirmed during the week ahead.

IMPORTANT: Do not leave your home to play tennis if Government advice means you should stay at home because you or someone you live with has or has had symptoms of COVID-19, or you are in the most vulnerable category and have been advised to shield from the coronavirus. 

 

GDT COVID-19 Update – Return to 1:1 Lessons

We are pleased to announce that our coaches will be returning to court from Monday 18th May. Although group coaching is currently not available, our coaches will be offering individual, 1:1 coaching. To organise a lesson please do so directly with your coach, who may have already been in contact.

Our coaches, will of course, be following the LTA guidelines on coaching during this time. Players should adhere to the Government’s social distancing guidelines (staying at least 2m away from others), and practice public health advice for hygiene. All LTA and Government guidelines must be followed.

IMPORTANT: Do not leave your home to play tennis if Government advice means you should stay at home because you or someone you live with has or has had symptoms of COVID-19, or you are in the most vulnerable category and have been advised to shield from the coronavirus.
