Lockdown latest & Widespread Press Coverage of WFSSC

Well what a week that was! Ending lockdown on 29th March, playing midnight tennis with DIY lighting proved a great hit with Granada Reports , Lancashire Evening Post, BBC Radio 5live, LTA, Chorley Guardian and too many news sites to mention. We've even reached Australia! If you missed/didn't catch any of that just click on one of the links.

Meanwhile ...

The PM oulined a 4 step programme to lift Cv19 restrictions 

Outdoor sport has been allowed from March 29th - so this means the tennis courts are open as normal. (Please remember to book your court via the website or Clubspark app).

Cricket has also resumed - in the socially distanced manner that was used last summer.  Games are scheduled for each Saturday during the summer.

Outdoor hospitality has been permitted from April 12th - rule of 6 / 2 families to apply.   Please see CV19 rules on the tables if you are using hospitality.

Indoor adult exercise is   permitted ( from May 17th) as the government has  authorised a move to Step 3.  So this means that Fitness, Pilates & Yoga classes will be re-starting from 17th May.  U3A groups will also be able to use the indoor spaces - rather than being forced to meet under the gazebos.  

Indoor hospitality is to be permitted at step 3 - but again this will be table service with rule of 6/2 families applying.

And, of course, we have fingers firmly crossed for July 19th - hopefully Stage 4 - with more relaxation of CV19 rules.  🤞🏻



In normal times, this is what we'd like to have first up on our home page...

The clubhouse is used for social activities including a monthly quiz night and there are weekly fitness, pilates and yoga classes. See the 'News' section for more details. The clubhouse is available for hire by any adult member. Click here to download details.

The club is also used several times per week by West Pennine U3A and provides facilities to support WF Primary School P.E. provision.
