Please review the above document and contact Barbara (by text message before 9pm each day) if you would like to arrange to play at the club.  Some of they key advice for playing at the club during this time is also included below. Please note doubles play is now allowed. It is important for all those wishing to play doubles to read the recent LTA guidelines on doubles play, which can be viewed here:https://www.lta.org.uk/globalassets/news/2020/lta-guidance-for-tennis-venues---covid-19.pdf.

 

Key advice:

 

Use of the courts will need to be under the ‘new normal’ conditions as outlined by the government and endorsed by the LTA. 

 

  • You should bring with you soap and a hand towel and wash your hands at the tap on the right just inside the gate BEFORE playing. If you don’t think this necessary remember you have just undone the padlock and touched the gate and could have some lurking bugs on your hands!
  • The hut is completely out of bounds.
  • You will need to bring all your own equipment, including balls which are easily identified as YOURS and you will only serve using those balls. Your opponent will need to do the same. Balls being returned to the server should be rolled back using your racket. Remember to bring your own drink.
  • You should not change ends, or you should change using opposite ends of the net.
  • After play you should wipe down any surfaces you have touched with the surface cleaner and wipes provided. And you will need to take the wipes you have used home with you in the bags provided. You may leave the net up to avoid unnecessary handling of the net winder and if you don’t want to wipe down the score boards don’t use and keep the score in your head.
  • Wash your hands again before leaving the court and remember to keep one wipe for the padlock after locking.
  • When playing doubles you should try to maintain a distance of two metres between yourself and your partner and might be easier if you decide at the outset who takes the middle balls.
  • You must book a court by contacting Barbara, who reserves the right to decide whether it is advisable to use the middle court dependent upon the composition of players. For example a coaching session on court three and a family group with children on court one would likely require the middle court to be kept free to avoid mingling when chasing loose balls.

 

Enjoy your tennis again!
