The LTA, in consultation with the government, have confirmed that from Monday informal social play is limited to groups of no more than 6 individuals, but organised activities such as coaching, competitions and club sessions are exempt from this rule provided they are compliant with the appropriate LTA COVID-19 guidelines.
The club has already taken the necessary steps to implement the LTA Guidelines so we expect all competitions, coaching courses and club sessions to continue as planned.
In light of the rising infection rate it is imperative that all players implement good practices when playing, including not attending if feeling unwell, washing hands frequently, maintaining 2m distance from others (especially before and after playing) and avoiding skin-to-skin contact.
Players attending organised club sessions are reminded to follow the existing COVID-19 protocol. The club has also enrolled in the new NHS QR Code Contact Tracing scheme and logging your participation in a club social session will be mandatory once the app launches on 24th September. There is currently one poster displaying the QR code in the clubhouse kitchen window (on your right before you reach the door), and we will add further weatherproof posters to the court gates in due course.
