“End of Lockdown” the Sequel – 02 Dec Onwards

The month long Covid 19 lockdown will end on Wednesday the 2nd December. Look out for details on the club social WhatsApp Channel for the club night on the first night back. There seems to be lots of pent up enthusiasm to get back on the court so we hope you all enjoy playing again

2020! What a year it has been so far but luckily we’ve been able to play tennis most of the time.  We had a huge number of new members over the summer and are continuing to get enquiries into autumn which is fantastic for the club. Please welcome any new players and help them with any enquiries.

The Winter leagues have started and after the summer matches being cancelled, it feels good to be back playing the Middlesex games.  All the clubs we have visited so far have had good Covid measures in place and the players we have spoken to feel very safe. With no socialising after the match, players are home quickly and things are running smoothly so far. We have 4 mens teams, 2 ladies teams and 2 mixed teams playing this season so good luck to all.

I have added the new LTA summary sheet for the different Covid Tier levels below. As you can see, there is very little difference between them. Because all of our tennis is outside we are able to continue without any restrictions and in addition even if we were in tier 3, as almost all of our matches are all in London, we could continue if all players and clubs agreed.

So please keep enjoying your tennis, keep recording your names on the list inside the club house for our track and trace and keep your distance so that we can make sure all players are safe. See you on court soon.
