  4. THE CLUBHOUSE TOILETS MAY BE USED OTHERWISE A FIRST-AID BAY & HANDWASHING GELS WILL BE SUPPLIED IN A PLASTIC BOX BY THE CLUBHOUSE. This will be signposted.
  5. NO PLAYER SHOULD PLAY IF THEY HAVE ANY OF THE SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19 (high temperature or a continuous cough, etc)
  6. Players should bring their own tennis balls to the club. 
  7. PLAYERS SHOULD TRAVEL SEPARATELY IF THEY ARE NOT IN THE SAME HOUSEHOLD.
  8. PLAYERS SHOULD WASH THEIR HANDS BEFORE TRAVELLING TO THE CLUB OR USE ANTISEPTIC GEL AND SHOULD WASH THEIR HANDS AS SOON AS THEY CAN AFTER PLAYING.

  2.  LEAVE 5 MINUTES BEFORE THE NEXT BOOKING.

ALL CURRENT MEMBERSHIPS HAVE BEEN EXTENDED UNTIL APRIL 3Oth 2021 AND THIS YEARS FEES WILL BE CALCULATED TO TAKE ACCOUNT OF THE TIME THE CLUB HAS BEEN CLOSED.

Those of you who follow Facebook may have noticed increased activity on the Club's page. Many thanks to Adrian Watts, soon to be a Level 3 coach, who is helping members and the local community to keep well informed and entertained. Please share any posts that you may think are useful. Thank you. 

SEVERAL COMMITTEE MEMBERS HAVE WORKED EXTREMELY HARD TO MAKE SURE THE CLUB IS AS SAFE AS CAN BE AND READY FOR PLAY. I WOULD LIKE TO THANK THEM ON BEHALF OF THE DIRECTORS FOR THEIR EFFORTS WHICH ARE ALL VOLUNTEERED. I'D ALSO LIKE TO THANK ED BEACH WHO HAS DONE AN INCREDIBLE JOB WITH THE NEW WEBSITE WHICH MAKES IT POSSIBLE FOR YOU TO BOOK COURTS ONLINE.
