Membership Secretary, Helen Riby, said: “The club is fortunate in having plenty of open space for visitors to spread out in so social distancing will not be a problem.

“Current limits are that there should be no more than 30 people in a group but we anticipate that group sizes for the tennis sessions will be smaller than that.

"Spectators are allowed but again social distancing rules must be observed and group sizes must be no more than 30. Again we anticipate most spectators will be in smaller family groups.

“All visitors will be asked to check in for Covid Test and Trace purposes and there will be plenty of hand sanitiser stations around.

" For those who prefer to book in advance all the tennis sessions can be booked via the club’s website.”

The club is LTA registered and has been following LTA guidance for covid safe play throughout the pandemic.”
