|COVID-19: Tennis Protocol (21st March 2020)|
|March 22nd, 2020|
The Department of Culture, Media and Sport has specifically advised that tennis is one of the best examples of social distancing in practice and should be encouraged, provided that players adhere to strict social distancing and hygiene practices
For this reason, the club is continuing to allow members to access the outdoor tennis courts.
We were pleased to see the courts were still busy this morning and we expect that this will continue to be the case. However, we need to establish good practices when using the club’s facilities. Our guidance detailed below is based largely on the LTA guidance which can be found at https://www.lta.org.uk/about-us/tennis-news/news-and-opinion/general-news/2020/march/coronavirus-covid-19-advice-for-venues/
We take your health & safety very seriously and if some members fail to comply with our guidance, we will have no choice but to close the outdoor courts. Please read our guidance carefully and be considerate to other members so that we can keep the outdoor courts available.
Private 1-2-1 coaching will still currently be available, for the time being. Speak to your coach directly to plan this.
The latest information can be found on these websites.
Thank you for your support and understanding at this most challenging of times.
