Notice regarding temporary closure

Dear Customers, 

Following further relaxations to lockdown restrictions, it is now permissible to play tennis in larger groups outdoors. However, our indoor centre must remain closed because tennis is still not permitted indoors and we are not adequately resourced to operate a Reception faculty for what is still a comparatively modest outdoor operation. For this and other reasons, we have decided not to reinstate junior or adult group coaching under the PTA/Absolute Tennis banner for the time being.
Nevertheless, our coaches will continue to deliver their own individual sessions as has been the case for the past three weeks. Additionally, each coach can now offer group sessions (up to 5 players per court) in accordance with Government and LTA guidance. As a matter of propriety, it is stressed that any player that has belonged to our junior or adult programmes and who is interested in group coaching must first contact enquiries@ptatennis.co.uk

Lastly, we've received enquiries to use our courts on a pay and play basis. We regret that this is not available; not just due to ongoing closure of our Reception. These outdoor courts are Naval Base property (PTA has permission to use them) with restricted access. PTA staff would need to be present during public use. As coaching is currently operating on an irregular pattern, we cannot accurately forecast court availability for pay and play use.'
