Restricted Tennis Play Effective 13/5/2020

Dear tennis player,

Restricted tennis play is now available from Wednesday 13th May for EGTSC members*. However, strict guidelines must be followed for your own safety and other members. The aim is to minimise encounters between people, including the car park and the entrance, and to ensure that the 2 metre social distancing measure can be adhered to at all times.

A maximum of two people per court (singles play only). Players can be from different households. The only exception is where a group of four players are all from the same household in which case they can play doubles.

All activity should be consistent with the government guidance regarding health, travel, social distancing and hygiene at all times.

The clubhouse will remain closed for now. Please access the courts via the side gate using code - 1901. With the hasp on the left, enter the code, then press the button at the base of the paddlock to release the hasp. The numbers need to be in line and will click when engaged properly. If you are the last person to leave the premises, please lock the padlock by rotating the numbers.

Nets will be checked at the start of the day at the appropriate height to avoid you having to adjust them.

Hand sanitizer will be available for use at entrance and at the courts.

Guidelines for personal protection :

1. Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before leaving home to go to the court (or use an alcohol gel if washing hands is not possible).

2. Ensure you have booked a court in advance. Please vacate your court in a staggered way around 5 or 10 minutes before the end of your booked slot in order to avoid crossing paths with others coming on court.

3. Stay at least two metres away from other players at all times (including during play, when taking breaks and before and after play).

4. Take all your own equipment (do not share equipment such as rackets, grips, hats and towels). Clean and wipe down your equipment, including racquets and water bottles before and after use.

5. Bring a full water bottle, and do not share food or drink with others.

6. Bring your own tennis balls that are clearly marked (e.g. with your initials).

7. Avoid touching court gates, fences, benches, etc. where possible.

8. Allow others to leave before you enter the court - if you need to wait, then do so away from the courts and clear of the gates.

9. Do not make physical contact with other players (such as shaking hands or high five).

10. Stay on your side of court and avoid changing ends, or agree to change ends at opposite sides of the net.

11. Avoid using your hands to pick up tennis balls that aren’t yours - use your racquet/foot to hit/kick them to your opponent or return them to another court.

*For those yet to renew membership then you must do so in order to play. Based on closure of the club there are two options for paying in full:

(1) the amount quoted in the current membership form (emailed previously to all members or available via our website) noting an extension to the current expiry date to 31//05/2021
(2) pro rata adjustment to amounts quoted (pay for 10 months out of 12) with renewal at usual date of 31//03/2021.

All membership enquires can be sent to

Please enjoy your tennis and stay safe :-)
