LTA advice on Coronavirus

Posted by David Howlett on 21 March 2020


Government advice on social distancing has tightened up and as a consequence the Clubhouse is now SHUT DOWN, so no toilet visits will be possible. Please also see this link to general advice


Below is a summary of the main points:

Government's advice:


Adapting sessions to accommodate the advice on social distancing.

Closure of all social spaces at a venue, including changing and toilet facilities.

Use online booking for courts and sessions where at all possible (rarely used at BRTC).

A buffer period be implemented between court booking slots to allow time for players to leave before next players arrive (at BRTC, please allow players to leave the court before the players for the next game enter the court).

Activity should only take place where travel to and from the courts can be done in a way compliant with social distancing advice, with players not travelling together unless they are part of a group residing in the same place.

Activity should be in line with the Government's advised social distancing measures at all times(defined by Public Health England as spending no more than 15 minutes and not within a 2-metre distance talking to someone), including when arriving to and departing from a court.

If you are not confident that you can adhere to the social distancing guidance when undertaking tennis and coaching activity in doubles format, you should only facilitate activity with two players per court.

Players are advised not to change ends during play.

Coaches to avoid close proximity when giving feedback, or when players are resting.

Ensure no physical contact between players during warm-ups or games.

No extra-curricular or social activity should take place.

Sorry about the inconvenience, but I am sure you will agree that we should all take the necessary steps to avoid unnecessary spreading of the virus, especially if you have seen recent comments by NHS staff about their frustrations and workload.
