Updated guidelines – Version 10

Step 3 of Government COVID restrictions from 17 May 2021

Whilst the latest relaxation of restrictions is welcome, the virus remains a concern, and we must continue to do our utmost to keep the club safe. Please do not come to the club if you are showing any symptoms and, for the purposes of Track-&-Trace, if you become unwell after playing, you must contact your GP and then inform the club.

We ask members to follow the following guidelines:

Please ensure you continue to wear a face mask in the Clubhouse as restrictions ease, except when seated at an allocated drinks table.

Maintain 2-metre social distancing at all times, and practice good hand hygiene.

Don’t linger in the courtyard area unnecessarily despite the new rule of 30 outside applying in principle because our space is too limited to enable this to happen fully.

The clubhouse will now be open but under certain restrictions, including the rule of 6, which will apply.

General socialising before and after play cannot happen indoors, except for those seated at an allocated table.

All group social tennis will continue to be structured and planned in advance on Wednesday mornings and evenings and Friday mornings.

Members are encouraged to avoid using the changing rooms where possible.

If you intend to spectate at an event, please clear this with the organiser/coach first.

Parents and guardians are still encouraged to drop juniors off at the gate and to wait outside in cars, as before.

Courts must be booked through the ClubSpark website for Track-&-Trace purposes.

No guests are allowed until further notice due to the limited court space available.

The Bar is open for table service only

There will now be:

  • 1 allocated drinks table in the courtyard
  • 2 drinks tables on the Bueno Balcony
  • 1 indoor table downstairs
  • 1 indoor table upstairs

Masks may be removed when seated at an allocated drinks table, where the ‘Rule of 6’ or ‘2 households’ applies.

Only a Committee Member or authorised bar person may open the bar and sell refreshments, dependent on availability.

It will not be always possible to have a drink due to availability.

No table bookings are possible.

No guests are allowed.
