- Please ensure that the clubhouse is locked, and the chain lock is secure if you are the last to leave the club. This is particularly relevant when you are the last on court in the evening especially on a Sunday evening.
- Please refrain from using your mobile phones in the changing rooms at any time. This also applies to on court, unless you have the express permission of all those that you are filming and the consent of the coaches, where applicable.
- Do gently challenge anyone that looks unfamiliar who walks into the club or clubhouse. Simply ask if you can be of help and ascertain their reasoning for being at the club.
- Do your bit to keep your club clean and tidy, don’t leave discarded tennis balls, tubes, lids, cups and seals on court after your tennis session, thank you.
Governments Autumn & Winter Plan – Face Masks
As a hospitality setting, face masks are not compulsory. However, individually you may feel more comfortable when the clubhouse gets busy wearing one. We encourage you to continue being respectful of one and other and please do continue to use the hand sanitisers provided. We will continue to follow the governments guidelines and modify our activities as necessary as things evolve over the coming weeks.
Club Christmas Party
Sadly, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel this years Christmas Party. As a Community Club we feel it best that we don’t ask you all to come together indoors and celebrate, as much as we’d love for this to happen, at this time of the rising spread of the Omicron variant. That said we will be looking forward to organising a celebration gathering in early 2022.
With the delay in the hard court resurfacing recently announced, we are this week and next undertaking a deep clean wash and moss treatment. This is designed to help with improving the court playability, especially underfoot. As the courts are so old getting a firm grip is challenging. Please do take care when playing and test your footwear on the surface before playing.
Junior Coaching Guidance
Whilst we are delighted with the number of juniors attending the coaching programme through the week, we would very much like to reinforce the principles of parents booking in advance using the Club coaching links (https://clubspark.lta.org.uk/BathTennisClub/Coaching). This will greatly assist with getting the correct balance of coaches to juniors and also helps address communicating a session being cancelled at short notice.
We would also like to advise parents to be mindful when standing close to the fence and our neighbouring houses not to gather in groups and conduct conversations. Additionally, we would like to reinforce that for safeguarding and welfare reasons, whilst we understand that parents may wish to take photos or videos of their child in action on the courts during group coaching sessions, we as a club do not permit this activity. Can you please respect the club and coaches wishes with this, thank you.
