COVID-19 UPDATE - Wednesday 24th June 2020

All four courts now open for play. 

COVID-19 update - Monday 1st June 2020

The LTA have issued new guidelines for play.   Please see  LTA.ORG.UK  for all details. Click here  for summary advice

Doubles play is now allowed between players from different households, although social distancing is still to be enforced, and the  regular use of antibacterial gel  is very much encouraged.*   

 

*************************************************************************************************************

UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE only Members are allowed to play at the club.  Please do not bring guests.  The reasons are as follows:

1. We have to strictly comply with LTA Guidelines on safe play during the Covid-19 pandemic, and rely on our members to read and follow all rules.  We cannot be sure that any guest will have read these rules or have been shown them, and therefore comply with them.

2.  With the new LTA guideline that doubles can be played between four people not from the same household, there is a strong chance that there will be more pressure on the courts, which cannot be taken up with non-members.

*For practical purposes the club is unable to  provide gel

The Club have put some additional measures in place to protect you and to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, including (again see full detail via club email):

Club house and toilets to remain closed.

First Aid box removed from club house and positioned in a visible outside location.

We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you fully informed of any developments, and will keep the website up to date.

Many thanks for your continued support which is much appreciated .

All the best, and keep well!

Robert Katzaros, President.
