CLUB / LTA  GUIDANCE  FOR  REINTRODUCTION  OF  TENNIS  AT  OUR  COURTS

- Currently the clubhouse must not be entered except for access to emergency first aid equipment

- Our toilet facilities remain closed (This is being reviewed with Government & Sport Scotland)

- Maximum of two people per court (singles play only). Players can be from different households

   (The only exception to the above is where doubles can be played between two household groups or four   

    players from the same household)

- All use of our courts initially to be booked on line only

  Please consider others when booking the courts e.g. avoid blocking out the same court time on consecutive   

  days. Initially members will be able to book from up to three days in advance and non-members from a day  

  in advance. Sessions will be for 90 minutes and one booking per day will be permitted. These rules will be

  regularly reviewed as court usage patterns are established.

- For a trial period the courts will be left unlocked, to avoid problems with transmission from court key and  

  access problems

- Hand sanitizer will be placed at the court gate, but take some with you in case it disappears

- The net winder and net bands will be removed to avoid transmission problem

- There are no club balls accessible in the clubhouse.

- As sport shops are currently closed and many players will not have balls at home balls will be available

  from the club.

  Available balls will be of two categories (a) new balls in pressurised four ball cans (usual club stock) for £4

  (b) good quality used non pressurised balls (long life ITI quality) for free

  These balls can be ordered from Douglas who will make arrangements with you for “collection”, home tel.
