Update to the LTA guideline – Social tennis returns!

Dear Members,

Following the opening of the courts on the 15th of May there has been a change to the restricted arrangements that will apply from the 13th of July
Remember social distancing rules still apply.
To summarise:
  • Booking court time on line only – No “turn up and play.”
  • Singles play with another member
  • Doubles play with members outside of the family unit now allowed.
  • Social play sessions now reinstated.
  • Practice play on your own.
  • Wednesday coaching resumes without limitations.

Also the other special conditions remain in place:

  • The Clubhouse is still restricted and should only be entered for water or to use the toilet. Please do not gather in the clubhouse
  • Please refrain from gathering in close groups – adhere to social distancing etiquette .
  • Please respect the guidelines as the opening of the courts is conditional on the rules being followed – any infringements could cause the courts to be closed.

Visitor and Guest play – update


Entry to the courts is protected by a padlock.
