Coronavirus Update 29/03/2021


The club has reopened for play.  Before visiting please ensure you are familiar with the latest guidelines so we can all play safely and ensure the last lockdown is well and truly behind us!

To ensure safe play, it remains critical we all continue to observe the basics:





Coronavirus Update 29/11/2020

As you are no doubt aware the current lockdown restrictions end at midnight on Tuesday 1st December.


From Wednesday December 2nd once again we can all enjoy social tennis.  Both singles and doubles are permitted across all the 3 tiers in England.


The other key points to note are:

  • Club matches - these can now take place. Captains will advise respective team players about fixtures accordingly.

  • Coaching - to be confirmed

  • Social play/Club night - this can now resume commencing Tuesday 8th Dec from 6.30pm.  


Obviously it remains critical we all continue to observe the basics:

  • Social distancing

  • Personal Hygiene, including sanitising pre and post play

  • Minimal use of the clubhouse; toilet only.




Coronavirus Update 03/07/2020


In line with the Government's continued relaxation of the lock down regime I'm pleased to confirm we are planning to open the club house from Saturday July 4th, albeit in a strictly limited way:

  • Primarily the clubhouse will only be open for use of the toilet and essential access e.g. Bob or Tony to retrieve equipment.

  • Only one person to be allowed in the club house at a time 

  • Soap and paper towels and bin with lid will be provided in the toilet area to ensure compliance with hand washing routines. 

  • It remains good practice for all players to sanitize hands before and after play i.e. on entry & exit to the court.

  • The club house cannot be used for socializing by members or parents. Similarly the guidance makes clear no changing in the club house or indeed storage of bags - these will need to be left court side.


Coronavirus Update 19/03/2020


As a club we are committed to protecting the health and safety of our members, whilst appreciating the benefits of exercise and fresh air. We are monitoring both government and LTA advice, and are issuing this guidance accordingly, however we recognise that we may need to change our recommendations as the situation evolves.


This link gives the latest government guidelines:


The club remains open for as long as possible for personally arranged social tennis (over 14’s only unless accompanied by an adult member).

All individual and junior group coaching sessions are cancelled until further notice.


We ask that you follow the measures below in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus:


  • Social distancing – please be mindful and respect personal space

  • Do not use the clubhouse except for toilet and sink facilities

  • Wash hands before and after playing

  • Avoid non essential contact – no shaking hands, high-fives etc

  • Do not share equipment, racquets etc


Please do not visit the club if you are in any way unwell, particularly if anyone in your household has a high temperature and/or a new persistent cough.  All players play at their own risk.



We appreciate your support in adhering to the above measures, and will continue to review as and when we get further updates.

Thank you for your understanding and we hope you all stay healthy and safe.
