SOCIAL CONTACT LIMITS
[UPDATED] Players should be aware that while there are exemptions in place to permit organised outdoor and indoor group tennis activity in numbers greater than the permitted social contact limits, this exemption only applies to the organised physical activity itself and NOT ANY SOCIALISING BEFORE, AFTER OR AROUND THE ACTIVITY.
Participants should therefore ensure they adhere to the rule of six indoors and 30 outdoors before the activity starts and after it ends, and during any breaks in play
SECTION 2: DURING PLAY
MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING
Other than where players are from the same household or part of a support bubble, you should:
Stay at least two metres away from others you do not live with or are in a support bubble with (including during play as far as possible, when taking breaks and before and after play)
Do not make physical contact with other players (such as shaking hands or high five)
Avoid chasing the ball down to another court if other players are using it
For doubles, consider agreeing in advance which player will take the shot if a ball travels to the centre of the court
Limit your interactions with anyone outside of the group you are attending the venue with (e.g. players on another court or in a different coaching group)
Hand hygiene is imperative – hand sanitise at intervals if you have to touch communal surfaces and clean your hands before play and immediately after finishing (use alcohol gel if required)
If you need to sneeze or cough, do so into a tissue or upper sleeve
EQUIPMENT & FACILITIES
Players should still avoid using their hands to pick up tennis balls from other courts where possible – use your racquet/foot to return them as those players may have made a personal decision to use their own marked tennis balls
OUTDOOR TENNIS - INFORMAL SOCIAL PLAY
Both singles play and doubles play is permitted with people from outside of your household, as long as you remain 2 metres apart as far as possible – meaning that four people from different households can play doubles
For informal social play, group size is limited to a maximum of 30 people by law.
Social distancing should be maintained between people who do not live together or share a support bubble
