25th September 2021
I hope you all had a lovely summer and were able to have some time away.
With the children back at school and the nights drawing in, we start our Autumn tennis season.
Stephen has many courses for adults and children, for all ability levels.
Please look at the coaching section, there is something for everyone.
Following the Government/LTA Step 4 guidelines from 19th July, there have been a few changes to our Risk Assessment.
Although tennis is a naturally socially distant sport, players/visitors should still take steps to reduce the risk of CV-19 transmission when attending the club.
There is sanitising gel as you walk through the main entrance gate, also inside the clubhouse and at the court gates.
Tennis balls no longer need to be initialled.
The club will support the NHS Test/Trace, so please continue to use both names when booking online.
Please consider the wishes of other participants, ie.If they do not wish to shake hands after a match, then touch racquets instead.
The clubhouse is open, please have windows and doors open if more than 6 inside, wear mask if you want.
The toilet /changing room facilities are open, please use sanitising spray after use, thank you.
One person at a time in the changing rooms unless a child is with a parent/guardian. Changing Room policy is located on the door.
