COVID-19 - TIER 4 RESTRICTIONS

Dear members,

Following on from a zoom meeting with the LTA this morning I have to advise you of the following changes to playing arrangements at our Club, resulting from the Tier 4 restrictions, with immediate effect:-

1) Organised Social Play on Thursday/Sunday mornings
Under the new restrictions it is no longer permissible for clubs to organise social play. I have therefore removed the block bookings for the above events from the Clubs website court bookings section, initially until the end of January 2021.

2) Internal Box Leagues
Under the new restrictions it is no longer permissible for clubs to organise adult competition of any kind. Unfortunately our highly successful internal box leagues come within this restriction and are therefore suspended with immediate effect and until further notice.

3) Friendly matches v other clubs
As these friendlies constitute doubles play, all scheduled friendlies are postponed (or most likely cancelled) until further notice.

On a more positive note singles play is still permissible, provided members book a court using the clubs court booking system. To reiterate, no doubles play is possible, unless a 4 can be achieved from the same household. I appreciate this may seem to be a contradiction to the missive on our box leagues above, but I am afraid these are the rules/restrictions that all clubs are required to adhere too.

Please continue to observe social distancing rules, leave the court 10 minutes before your allotted time expires and take all your property with you when leaving. Please continue to use hand sanitiser before and after play. The tennis nets are set at the correct height so please do not amend.

I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news. I shall be in touch again as soon as these playing restrictions change. Merry Christmas and a happy new year.
