Following the announcements made by Government in recent days and fresh advice received today from the LTA, I am pleased to advise that our tennis courts will be re-opened to all existing members with effect from 9am tomorrow, Wednesday 13 May 2020. In summary, singles play is now permissible, but doubles is not (unless there are four members from the same household). To manage the re-opening of our courts, the club has set up a court booking facility on our website and this is now available for existing members to use.

Due to COVID-19 the May 10th Open Day is under revue, please check back later for more information.
The absolute priority of everyone in Britain needs to be protecting the health of the nation, with a requirement to dramatically adjust our behaviour to help slow the spread of the disease, prevent the NHS from being overwhelmed, and ultimately save lives. The way everyone can do this is complying with the Government’s guidance and staying at home.
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday evening (23 March) all tennis facilities and courts should be closed, and tennis coaching and activity should be put on hold with immediate effect. The National Tennis Centre is closed, and all activity delivered by the LTA remains suspended for the foreseeable future, including all LTA organised coaching sessions, programmes and training courses. We have also now extended the cancellation of all LTA staged and LTA approved competitions (grade 1 to 6) up to 31 May 2020.
During these challenging times for our society, our focus over the coming weeks will be to ensure tennis coaches, venues, volunteers, officials and players are supported in any way they can be, so that tennis in Britain emerges from this period in as strong and healthy position as possible, and the sport is able to resume its role in keeping the nation active.
We are continuing to work with Government to help us achieve this, and establishing what further support can be provided to help all those impacted by this unprecedented situation.
