March Newsletter 2021
Re-Opening of the club: At present it is expected that we will be in a position to start playing outdoor tennis again on Monday 29th March. Singles and doubles outdoor play is permitted but rule six will apply (please see attached information). Further guidance from the LTA is due from the 22nd March and we will keep members informed of any changes. We need to continue using the on-line booking system, this system is working well and courts can be booked from Monday 22nd March. To assist Track and Trace procedure please continue to register the names of all players. We should all still follow the guidelines; leaving the nets up and taking our rubbish home please.
Due to the current restrictions we don’t feel that we can organise club tennis on Thursday evening or our Wednesday morning mix-in until we receive further guidance from the LTA. We don’t anticipate this happening until before Easter. We still need to stay in our groups, but if anyone is finding it difficult to find a ‘four’ the WhatsApp groups are available that were used for Wednesday morning mix-ins and Thursday evenings. Please contact a committee member if you would like to be added to one of these groups.
Clare has reported that a lot of members have renewed their membership which is great news. Thank you to members that have continued to support our club during this difficult time. We are looking forward to playing tennis again and being able to socialise once more, and being in a position to welcome and meet new members. Please remember that the early-pay discount for members renewing their membership applies until the end of March.
Sue and Mandy have both kindly agreed to provide further training sessions for members wishing to use the ball machine. Members need to receive training prior to using the machine. The session that was held before the lockdown was very successful and we feel that this is a great asset to our club. We will notify members as soon as we are in a position to offer further dates adhering to Covid-19 guidelines.
We will make sure that we provide regular updates/information on our notice board. The Sports Club are also in the process of designing a new sign so look out for the new sign.
Stay Safe and enjoy your tennis when we start playing again.
