BLTC Newsletter August 2020


Dear Visitor,


Club Doubles Sessions 


We are planning to take some tentative steps back towards running Club Doubles sessions for members. The current guidance from the LTA prohibits the previous informal club social sessions that used to run on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays as we must limit the number of people that can play together to a maximum of 5 different households.


We therefore propose to trial a method of running Club Doubles sessions on Sunday afternoons from 14:30 to 16:30 as follows:

  • numbers are limited initially to 8 participants on 2 courts
  • places must be booked at least 24 hours in advance via the ClubSpark Coaching page
  • an automated waiting list is in operation so if you change your mind please cancel your booking
  • groups of 4 players will be organised and advised via the Social Tennis WhatsApp group
  • players must remain within that group of 4 for the whole session, and not swap courts

We will see how this works out and can then extend the system to other Club sessions in future. The first session is scheduled for Sunday 16th August, so please go ahead and book your place.


As ever, please take all necessary precautions to keep yourself and those around you safe and well.



Club Championships


The club championships are well underway. If you are interested in following the senior competition results, they are being updated regularly in the ClubSpark Club Champs pages


The Junior Club Championships are being held this Saturday from 9:00 to 15:00.



ClubSpark Booking Issues


The ClubSpark team have advised that the difficulties we have been having with booking courts for Juniors whose parents are not members have now been resolved. I do hope this is the case - if not, please shout!



Best wishes
