We’re playing again but need to follow ‘stay alert’ regulations

The easing of the government lockdown rules from June 1 mean that we are now able to resume both doubles play and introduce the professional coaching that we had hoped to start in April. This note covers doubles play. There is a separate message about coaching arrangements.
We can also resume our social tennis sessions, but important restrictions on social contact remain in place and we need to remember there is a serious danger that if we do not stay alert, as the advice says, we could spread the coronavirus with potentially lethal consequences.
So, we now have the OK to play doubles. But please remember to social distance, wash hands etc, no hand shaking or hugging however well your partner has played!
You can use the clubhouse to wash hands, go to the toilet but as yet not for refreshments officially, so perhaps still a good idea to bring your own coffee etc.
There are club balls in the club house, but for now you might prefer to use your own.
The booking system will still be in operation but the following sessions are open for all members on a turn-up and play basis:
Monfris     Mon and Fri 10am – 12noon
Wed       1pm -3 ish
Sun        10am – 12 ish
If you have not yet registered for the booking system you can do so at

Members should also make sure they have paid this year’s membership fees before playing. The 2020 membership form  is here. The combination lock for the courts has now been changed and the new combination given to members who have signed up for this year.

Membership Form 2020

Unfortunately at present we are not able to allow guest players and the arrangements for non-members to book courts through the village shop will not apply for the time being.

The Lawn Tennis Association have provided some detailed guidance for players during this time. You will probably have received your own copy but a copy  can also be read through this link.
