Club Update – WC 20/07/2020
What’s on in July
The club is now open to members and non-members as part of the LTA’s coronavirus support package commitment. Members are welcome to bring along non-members to play with, as per the guidelines. It’s important to read through the guidance for accessing the club and using the courts and we do remind all our members to continue to adhere to the buffer system that is in operation for now.
As court demand may increase in the coming weeks, it’s more important than ever to ensure that you should cancel your court booking at the earliest opportunity. Please do be considerate of your fellow users, thank you!
From the 25th July
The court buffer system will be removed. Members who have booked courts should arrive to the club no earlier than 10 minutes before their allotted start and extend play to no later than 10 minutes before their allotted finish time. In addition, you will be able to book up to 120minute slots.
Again, we re-iterate at no point should you turn up without a booking!
