COVID-19: RETURN TO RESTRICTED PLAY
**FOLLOW THIS LINK FOR RULES OF PLAY**
Following the Scottish Government's statement on the 28 May that we are moving to Phase 1, we are delighted to announce that the courts can be opened to members from 1st June 2020 and we can return to restricted play.
We know how important it is for people to be active, and the particular role tennis can have in the physical and mental wellbeing of those that play it. By its very nature, tennis is an activity whereby close person to person contact can be avoided.
It will be great to get back to tennis. Please let’s allow all club members a chance to play.
Based on recent Scottish Government guidance and following the adjustment of lockdown restrictions, Tennis Scotland & the LTA has developed a set of practical guidelines to follow so that tennis can be played in Scotland consistent with the new route map moving out of lockdown, where the local environment allows.
As to be expected, there are stringent new measures in place to protect all members. It is imperative that those who use the courts READ the rules prior to booking. Using the courts will be taken as evidence that you agree to abide by these rules. Playing will be monitored for members’ safety.
Please familiarise yourself with the new rules of play under Covid-19.
Unfortunately, these rules do not apply to coaching. Coaching in any manner has not yet been given the go ahead.
