#coronavirus #covid19 update

Last update: 19 July 2020

Tennis remains an activity that has the potential for increased risk of transmission of COVID-19. This is why there are guidelines in place, to minimise this potential, and to keep everyone as safe as possible. Please follow them.

We strongly urge all players to read the LTA's lastest  guidelines for players and venues: https://www.lta.org.uk/globalassets/news/2020/lta-guidance-for-tennis-players---covid-19.pdf

A summary of how these restrictions play out for us, so we keep everyone safe, is laid out below. We kindly ask everyone to follow this.

And please contact us if you have any concerns or questions.

BOOK A COURT BEFORE YOU PLAY

There are four courts you can book.

Please cancel your booking if you change your mind so others can book the court instead.

Please play on the court you have booked.

The booking system is easy to use. There are two ways you can access it:
- the booking page on our website
- your smart phone by downloading the app 'Booker' by ClubSpark

Either way, you will need your ClubSpark registration to access the booking system. If you do not already have a registration you will need to set up an account with ClubSpark. Any questions or problems with booking, contact Pascal: [email protected]

PLEASE DO

- Stay at home if you, or someone you live with, has symptoms of COVID-19
- Stay at least 2m away from people from different households at all times
- Wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap at home, before and after playing
- Bring and use hand sanitiser before touching any shared surfaces
- When playing with shared balls take care to ensure you do not touch your face during play, and you should clean your hands before play and immediately after finishing. Use alcohol gel if required.
- Use your racket/foot (not hands) to return balls that come onto your court from other courts
- Take your litter home with you

TO MINIMISE TOUCHING SHARED SURFACES

- The nets will be left at the correct height. Please don’t touch them
- The court gate latches will be tied open. Please leave all gates open
- The clubhouse will remain closed
- Please take and use gloves in case you need to sweep the courts

That is all for now. Enjoy some tennis! And no doubt there will be more changes so please keep an eye out for club communications.

Please contact us you have any questions or problems.
