29th March 2021 - Tennis Courts are OPEN...

We can confirm that as from today 29 March 2021 the Tennis Courts are now open. Please see below updated information:

 

Are tennis courts open?

Yes, Boris Johnson confirmed that outdoor sports will be able resume from today, March 29.

Adults and children will be allowed to take part in organised outdoor sports - including tennis.

Ministers plan to introduce further relaxations on exercise at the end of next month - including outdoor tennis courts and golf courses, which enable people to remain socially distant.

Following the initial lockdown last spring, tennis courts were one of the first sports facilities to be reopened.

Tennis courts were closed during the third lockdown which started in January 2021.

What are the new rules?

The National Governing Body for tennis in Great Britain, the LTA, have outlined several rules for courts reopening.

  • They ask players to take hand sanitizer to the courts with them and for them to use their own equipment where possible.

  • Equipment such as rackets can be shared, but where this happens ensure thorough cleaning before and after use.

  • Players should not share items such as towels.

  • Players should only take the minimum amount of equipment that you need to play.

  • They ask players to arrive at the venue changed and ready to play, and shower at home.

  • Participants should therefore ensure they adhere to the rule of six before the activity starts and after it ends, and during any breaks in play.

  • Physical contact with other players, such as shaking hands or high five., should not be made with other players.

Please adhere to these rules, and stay safe. Thank you.
