Covid Traffic Light update 3rd Dec 2021

As everyone will be aware we are moving to the Covid Traffic Light System.  We have been waiting for guidance on how this will affect Tennis Clubs as an outdoor sport.  At this stage, based on current information, we have agreed that the Clubhouse building will be restricted to vaccinated people only but unvaccinated people will be able to play on the courts.  Gatherings at the courts will be limited to 50 people.  This decision will be re-visited regularly and may change. 

Some local Clubs have decided to immediately move to restrict the whole Clubs to vax only and others are taking a similar approach to us.  For your information, all Clubs have agreed that it is most likely that we will all move to vax only within the next month or so.

This is a very difficult situation for everyone and we ask that unvaccinated members respect the decision of the committee and do not enter the Clubrooms.  We anticipate that we will shortly be requesting that members upload vaccine passports to your Pay2Play record to fulfill our obligations and ensure that we are permitted to remain open.

Latest Covid Update: Level 1 from midnight 21 September.

  • All courts must be booked online so that we are able to contact trace easily should that be needed.
  • The gate must be locked after entry/ exit so that one person from each group playing uses their gate code to ensure we have a good record of those using the courts.
  • Maintain at least 2 metres distance from others.
  • Use hand sanitiser frequently.
  • Touch racquets – don’t shake hands.
  • Stay home if you are unwell.
  • Scan the Covid Tracer QR code displayed in the club window for your own records.
