Having regard to advice from the LTA and the Government in respect of the Coronavirus outbreak, the Club Management Team have decided on the following policy which will be continually reviewed and further updates issued, as required.
1. Junior Members
The junior coaching sessions will run this Friday evening for thoses parents/children that wish to attend but, following the decision to close schools with effect from Monday, 23 March 2020, Friday evening coaching sessions will be suspended from Friday, 27 March until further notice. All credits will be carried forward.
Although group sessions will be suspended, single one to one private lessons will remain available and can be arranged with Tom Goodaire, our head coach, on either Saturdays or during a weekday as children will not be at school. Tom can be contacted on 07581-309723.
The planned Easter school holiday camps will not take place.
2. Adult Members
Senior members can continue to play tennis at their discretion observing sensible precautions e.g.
Avoiding ALL physical contact e.g. shaking hands etc
Maintaining a 2 metre social distance
Crossing over at opposite sides of the net
Washing hands after play
Winter tournament matches, Ladies Saturday practice, Men’s Sunday practice and Club nights will continue for those who wish to continue playing but American tournaments will not be run pending further consideration.
3. Clubhouse
There will be no social functions for the foreseeable future. PLEASE NOTE this Friday’s Quiz (20 March) is cancelled. The 100 Club draw will take place privately with the snowball being rolled over each month until the Quiz night can resume.
The bar, lounge and table tennis room are now effectively closed for any gatherings with only the toilets open for use and hand washing after play.
Your support and understanding is greatly appreciated.
Take care and look after yourselves,
Hessle LTC Management Team
