Tennis News & Diary Dates

Dear tennis player,

**All of the below is written with the caveat that Boris’ ‘road map’ stays on track**

We hope that you and yours are well and coping ok in lockdown 3. The Tennis Committee zoomed and made plans for play following reopening Monday 29th March -

1. Club Sessions – to resume Tues & Weds mornings, Weds eve (revised time 5.30-7.30pm) and Sat pm (2-4pm). A member of the committee will be present at each session to facilitate safe play.

2. Box Leagues - Sion will arrange for singles and doubles box leagues to start again in April. All draws and scores will be online.

3. Club Tournaments 2021 - we plan to run 9 tournaments, as usual, and would like to add a Junior Open this year. We will invite paid members to sign up in April and draws will be posted online and in the clubhouse at the beginning of May. Chris, Toni & Daphne will organise the draws with help, where necessary. Finals Day will be 3rd July (Sunday 4th as reserve in case of bad weather). We hope to hold a social BBQ on 3rd. A decision was made to scrap outstanding tournaments from 2019 as we want to look forwards rather than backwards – apologies go to those involved.

4. Men's Practice Evening - Chris will facilitate men’s practice on the blue courts every Tues 7.30-9pm.

5. Leagues - Weald League has issued their fixtures, starting in April. We have 3 men's, 2 ladies and 2 mixed teams. Captains (Paul, Chris, Sion, Fi, James) are organising teams. Sussex Leagues resume in May but fixtures have not been issued as yet.

6. Coaching – Adam Baldwin and team are running a junior camp 12th-16th April and arranging the return of regular coaching sessions. We are very keen to support coaching for all age groups and abilities.

7. Birthday Party/Club Social - Heather has offered to organise a party to celebrate significant birthdays and the return to normal life for all members on 24th July.

Specific Covid guidance will be issued by the GC prior to reopening.

Courts will be bookable from 7am on 15th March. I know that some of you will be up at that time but please think about being flexible about when you play. Because the clocks go forward the weekend before, we should have natural light till 7.30pm.

Thanks for reading, Fi, Chris, Toni, Giles, Tony, Sion, Daphne & Sarah
