COVID-19 Information & Updates


Club Update - 3rd July 2020

Club Sessions

These are now running on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, from 10am to 12noon, and on Saturday afternoons from 1.30pm to 3.30pm for those members with full membership.

From next week the weekday sessions have a block booking on courts 2, 3 and 4. On Saturday we have booked courts 2 and 3 at present until we see how much demand there is.

During club session we would please ask that players remain within their group on court and do not mix in with players on other courts as this is considered a breach of the guidelines of only 6 people being allowed to meet.

Clubhouse

It is our intention to open the clubhouse on 11th July, but only to allow members access to the toilets. Members will not be allowed to use the kitchen facilities or use the tables and chairs.

Further, members must not place any belongings in the clubhouse.

The clubhouse door must remain locked at all times when leaving the clubhouse. Only one member is allowed in at a time unless they are with a child who requires supervision. All members must bring hand sanitiser and use this before entering the clubhouse and on their exit.

All members must be considerate of other members of the club. Should the Committee find that members are not adhering to the clubhouse rules then they will have no other choice but to close the clubhouse to members. The safety of our members is a priority at this time.

We would like to remind members that when entering the clubhouse members are doing so entirely at their own risk.

For those members who have recently paid for a swipe card to access the clubhouse there will be a Committee member present at the clubhouse between 10am and 12noon on Saturday 11th July if you would like to come and collect your card.

Guests

We are pleased to announce that paid members are once again permitted to bring guests to the club. A guest fee of £6.00 is charged for each visit to the club.

At this time, we have increased the number of times a member is allowed to bring the same guest to 5 times in any one year.

Furthermore, we also request that any member bringing a guest emails Coopers Hill membership before playing at the following email address membership@coopershilltennis.co.uk to inform them of their name, contact telephone number, the name of the guest and the date they are playing.

The Match and Visitors Fees Secretary will maintain a log of all guests visiting the club.

Please note that a member may introduce no more than three guests on any one day. To avoid the unnecessary handling of cash and cheques at this time we would ask that members pay their guest fees online once the guest has played at the club using the reference - "Member's name-guest fee".

We would kindly ask that if any member has brought a guest to play at the club in the past few weeks, that they email us with the relevant details and pay the guest fees owing.


We thank members for continuing to adhere to the social distancing rules and it is great to see so many members on the courts.

We hope all members are continuing to enjoy their tennis and please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any concerns.
