Dear Members and Players
We have had a great week back at tennis, thank you to everyone for following our new procedures.
Further to the updated Government COVID-19 guidance issued on 10th September members need to be aware of the key changes which take effect from Monday 14th September.
Organised tennis activity for larger groups, including coached sessions, club nights and competitions is permitted by the Government as an exception to the limit of six, and so can continue, provided that venues, coaching providers and event organisers follow LTA COVID-19 secure guidelines.
At Tennis Chesterfield we have implemented procedures such as track and trace, cleaning of equipment/ facilities, differing entry and exits points and social distancing measures in accordance with these guidlines.
For informal social play, group size is limited to a maximum of six people by law. Normal play organised by members playing singles or doubles, this will have no effect. However for groups of 8, this will mean making 2 court bookings in 2 names. The 4 players on each court cannot swap between courts, they can however swap around within their 4.
If anyone would like any more information please don't hesitate to contact us, as we are keen to ensure the club maintains a safe & secure environment for all members to enjoy their tennis.
