Coronavirus - what we can do to help


Dear Visitor,



Obviously we are all keen to keep playing tennis, so if the Coronavirus outbreak continues to develop we suggest it would be good for the Club to encourage certain practices as follows; 






Members have responsibility for the welfare of others as well as themselves and their children. Follow any official guidance and remember that it is possible that in the future either you or another player could be unknowingly carrying the virus. Taking action now to reduce the possibility of onward transmission is therefore worthwhile,


  • Thoroughly wash hands with soap and water before and after play as well as when you leave/arrive home. Use only the wash hand basin in the Clubhouse toilet, not the kitchen. Also take the opportunity to wipe down/wash equipment/water bottles etc well when leaving and returning home. 


  •  Try to remeber not to touch your face during play


  • No hand shaking or hi-fiving expected


  • Avoid putting balls in pockets where you keep or have kept tissues/hankies


If and when any can be obtained, the Club will provide high-alcohol gel that can be used for cleansing hands and items during play should that be desired

We will monitor guidance from public authorities as well as the LTA and NESLTA and adjust our practices accordingly.


Meanwhile, enjoy your tennis!





Best Regards



Arlene MacFarlane
