Courts will re-open on a limited basis from Friday 14 May according to the following guidelines to ensure player safety.

  • No one must use the courts if they are self- isolating or showing symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Only courts 1 and 3 will be open for booking.
  • Only singles can be played if the players are from different households. Doubles can be played if all players are from the same household with a maximum of four players on court.
  • Each member may play only twice in one week for the time being because of restricted court availability. This will be reviewed regularly.
