Club Update – More Tennis? Yes please!
Bath Tennis Club is pleased to announce that the permitted return of doubles play has been well received and members continue to uphold the guidelines for maintaining our safe recreational space. Thank you all. Now coming soon as mentioned last week will be the return of group coaching and cardio tennis, up to 6 including the coach. The clubhouse remains closed for the present time until we are informed otherwise. Do please continue to observe the club court usage guidelines and sanitise on arrival and departure and maintain the social distancing guidelines.
Rich & Andrew as coaches have agreed to resume their group coaching activities from this Saturday 13th June. All coaching enquires should be directed to your regular group coaching instructor for further guidance.
In addition to your club emails there is plenty of useful guidance on the LTA website for tennis players to read and digest – https://www.lta.org.uk/globalassets/news/2020/lta-guidance-for-tennis-players—covid-19.pdf
Help the Coaches Fundraiser
Tom and Ken have asked the club to remind everyone that Help the Coaches fundraiser will finish this week. With 5 days left to reach the £5,000 target it has passed the halfway milestone, which is great, though could do with a mini surge to the finish line! The total now stands at £2,715.

We will continue to provide updated guidance in terms of what is permittable at the club, but for now the program remains pretty much the same as last week.
Club Update: Guidance on Tennis – Return to Restricted Play
Please read through the guidance for accessing the club and using the courts. At present the club will only be open for members to book courts but they may bring along non-members to play with, as per the guidelines. The slight easing for this week is that members who have booked courts may get on court no earlier than 10 minutes before their allotted start and extend play to no later than 10 minutes after their allotted finish time. In addition, you can now book 90minute slots. Guest fees apply and the link is provided in the documents as well as below:
At no point should you turn up without a booking!
