Welcome to Groombridge Tennis Club

COVID 19 UPDATE

 

Further guidance has been published  to provide clarity on group activity after the Government confirmed that organised group tennis activity that is currently permitted in line with LTA COVID-19 Secure guidelines, can continue to take place.

  For clarity, from Monday 14 September:

  • For informal social play, group size is limited to a maximum of six people by law
  • Organised tennis activity for larger groups, including coached sessions, club nights and competitions is permitted by the Government as an exception to the limit of six, and so can continue, provided that venues, coaching providers and event organisers follow LTA COVID-19 secure guidelines

Further to the new LTA Guidelines for return to safe play published July 13th, we are delighted to announce a return of Club nights and Club sessions and mix ins,  starting with Ladies Morning and mixed club night from Wednesday 22 July, and mixed club morning Friday July 24. (See Club Calendar for full details).

PLEASE READ ALL THE LTA GUIDANCE FOR PLAYERS here.

Please note that all players and visitors to the Club are now instructed to carry out a pre-attendance sympton check PLUS, in order to support NHS Test and Trace, sign IN & OUT in the temporary record book which is kept on the veranda.

Whilst the clubhouse will remain closed for now, the toilet is now open, and the first aid kit remains accessible outside the club house.

Additionally, members are now welcome to bring guests to play at the club (see Policies section).  

Please refer to your email of 19/7/20 for full operational measures and guidelines.
