Tennis restarts- Covid-19 update

Share this

We are pleased to announce that the Memorial Hall Trustees have asked the tennis club to run courts 1&2 from 27 July.  The details of the operation are subject to a final agreement which is being discussed currently.  The club now has four courts available which makes membership better value than ever.  This is a great opportunity for members to introduce tennis playing friends and family to the club.  With the increased capacity we need and welcome new members of all standards.

Club sessions resume on Saturday 5 September.  Please follow the guidelines circulated to all members to minimise the potential risk of Covid-19 transmission.  All players should sign in on the Attendance Register every time they play in a club session so that we have the necessary record should it be necessary to 'Track and Trace'.

Public Bookings

While Covid-19 is with us all play must be according to the rules below and to updated advice circulated to members by email from time to time.  For this reason courts can only be booked and used by members.  Membership is open to all, regardless of standard.  New joiners are welcome to just play with their friends or family if they wish, but all players must be members.  Adult membership is only £99 (less than £2 a week) and there are lower cost options if you look here.  Once you have chosen your membership package and transferred the fees go to the bookings page, create an account and make your court booking.
