UPDATE FROM GTC COMMITTEE RE CORONAVIRUS

Wednesday 25th March 2020

I am very sorry to have to let you know that the LTA instructed us last night that all tennis courts must now be closed with immediate effect (please see www.lta.org.uk), so I will be securing the courts at Groombridge this morning. I know some of you will be very disappointed as tennis offered you the chance to get some fresh air, exercise and a change of scene in these dreadful times.

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

We were all looking forward to a lovely summer of events at Groombridge Tennis Club, and I do hope that we won't have to wait too long before we are able to re-open the club.

Of course, we now have to delay the start of our Annual Championships and the Handicapped Tournament, but we can all look forward to these events and we hope to make them extra special this year, which is our 20th Anniversary!

Many thanks for your continued support which is much appreciated .

All the best, and keep well!

Robert Katzaros, President.
