  • You should sanitise your hands on entering & when leaving the site.
  • Social distancing (min 2m) must be observed at all times (no shaking hands etc).

  • EVERY person entering through the gate should use the booking PIN and then ensure the gate is closed behind them (even if someone else is waiting to enter). Do not hold or leave the gate open for anyone.
  • DO NOT arrive more than 15 minutes before your booking start time as your PIN will not work.
  • Use ONLY the court number shown on your booking - If others are using your booked court when you arrive you should politely ask them to vacate it.
  • Players must be mindful of the time slots (you must drag the AC courts where applicable before departure) and vacate the club promptly and safely.
  • Bring your own balls and take them home after play.
  • Please put your trash in the bins provided outside the courts and do not leave anything on court.

You must sanitise/wash your hands thoroughly after leaving the club. If you develop any symptoms within 3 days of playing at the club, inform us asap.
