Coronavirus Update

**Coronavirus Update with regards to RTC tennis coaching, lessons, camps and competition leagues **

Dear Members, Parents, Guardians and Friends,

We would just like to inform you that at the moment our tennis coaching for both adults and juniors is still going ahead. We are keeping a close eye on the situation and are remaining in contact with the LTA.

We are a large 4 court outdoor club with lots of open space and with tennis being a non-contact sport we can ensure that players keep a reasonable distance from one another. I will be altering class sizes to ensure smaller groups and will be in touch with all the parents regarding this.

To allow our tennis to continue, we ask that you please:

  • sanitise/ wash your hands before and after entering the courts
  • if you/ your children or anyone you have been in contact with are displaying any symptoms of the Coronavirus, please do not come to the tennis club
  • if you have travelled outside of the UK within the last 2 weeks please do not enter the tennis courts

You will notice that methods of coaching will be slightly adapted, meaning there will be no more high 5’s, instead we will have racquet high 5’s, there will be more point based learning and during drills, players will be further apart.

The Spring League for both Juniors and Adults will still continue and will start next week. We will not have physical scorecards that need signing this season to prevent any contact.

All equipment used when coaching will be sanitised and balls will be regularly disinfected. Racquets that are borrowed will have their grips sanitised and cleaned. All cones, spots, strips etc will be sanitised before and after each session.

We appreciate your co-operation during this time and hope to keep tennis at Riccall Tennis Club going as long as possible.

If you have any queries at all please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
