Dear FTC member
Your tennis club committee hopes you are well and have been enjoying some brilliant tennis weather. Here’s a brief rundown on the latest at FTC…
What changes at FTC after Monday 19 July?
As we know, this is the date the Government has decreed Covid restrictions can be lifted. The club welcomes this step back to normality but urges all members to remain cautious and stick by the Hands, Face, Space mantra we have learnt to live with.
This is what will be different from Monday:
- The clubhouse will be open to members
- Club balls will be provided for club sessions
- Non-members will again be allowed to book the courts (3 and 4 only)
- To ensure correct track and trace procedure is followed, when you book a court online in the future you will be asked to enter a phone number and address (but only on the first time you book)
And do not forget these club rules
For everyone’s well-being, all FTC members must agree to the
- Please continue to Sign-In using the book provided on the pavilion bench
- Do not come to the club if feeling unwell, self-isolating or having tested positive
- Masks are recommended to be worn when inside the clubhouse
- Courts and especially the clubhouse MUST be locked up and windows closed at the end of each session: we are all collectively responsible for this
- No dogs are allowed on court
- Correct sports shoes must be worn on court at all times
Ball machine proving a big hit
Have you tried the club’s new automatic ball-feeding machine yet?
The machine can only be used on court 2. When you book online there is an option to select the machine with a slide button.
The Centre has asked us to point out to all members that when the bar is open, only alcohol purchased at the Centre can be consumed in the grounds.
Remember to pay your guest fees!
It is great to have members playing with their guests, but PLEASE remember to pay to pay your guest fees.
