Dear member

It is increasingly important that we keep a record of who is playing tennis because of ‘Track and Trace’

Organized tennis -If you are playing tennis on Tues, Thurs. and Sun. mornings you do not need to notify the club.

If you are playing social tennis (not organised sessions or coaching) during daytime (daylight hours) you need to 

either - text your name and date of play to the club phone – 075 7266 1554

or   -  post your name, and when you play, in the club’s mail box by the front door.

(This can be before or after you play)

Your details will be kept for 21days in line with lta Guidelines.
