Coronavirus Restrictions Update – 31st May 2020

Dear all,

As the Government makes gradual relaxations to the restrictions, the LTA continues to provide guidance. The latest LTA announcement was provided on 31 May and allows doubles for people from different households. As before, it is up to you to decide whether you wish to play and whether you choose to play doubles. As we continue to balance more activity with protecting the community from the risk of infection, please adhere to the following if you decide to play tennis.

🎾 Doubles and singles can now be played by people from different households. However, social distancing should be maintained as far as possible between you and your partner.

🎾 We want to restrict people going through the clubhouse as much as possible. If you have a key to the court gate then it is better to access the courts that way to avoid touching other surfaces. If you enter the clubhouse that should be for access to the courts only. You should not assume the clubhouse is contamination free.

🎾 If possible, bring your own balls and keep them with you for your next game.

🎾 Wash your hands thoroughly before playing and afterwards. If you have a hand sanitiser gel with you that is ideal. You may also like to wear gloves. Avoid touching your face with your hands.

🎾 Keep to the social distancing restrictions before and after the game. If there are other people playing then avoid using courts next to each other.

🎾 There will be no organised club evenings or tournaments as gatherings are still restricted to six people, so it is up to you to contact other people if you want to play against them.

🎾 Alex is now resuming 1:1 coaching sessions. Please contact him if you are interested on 07515356884 or email tennis@alexdoffman.com

We may have to review the situation at short notice if the Government’s position changes but will try to keep you informed.

Stay safe and keep alert.
