Dear Members,

Order of play for tonight’s Club Championship matches can be found here

Club Championships Schedule – 19th August

There have been some changes to the schedule, so please check your time carefully. Matches will only be cancelled if the courts are flooded and unplayable, so please turn up for your match unless you have received a text from a captain telling you that your match is postponed.


With the introduction of new regulations regarding gathering sizes, we unfortunately have to announce that NO SUPPORTERS may attend the Championship matches. All players should practice social distancing while playing and while waiting to go on court.

These rules also apply to our juniors who are having their Championships this week. It is challenging for juniors to social distance, so we ask parents/guardians to please remind them daily! No spectators are allowed at junior matches but one parent may attend to assist or supervise a player. Parents attending to supervise their child are asked to practice social distancing and to ensure their child does the same.

In addition, we will not now be able to have our Garden Drinks Party at the end of our Seniors Finals Day as we had planned. This is very disappointing as we were looking forward to seeing everyone and having a good ole Sandycove knees up, even for 90 minutes! But we are first and foremost a tennis club, and there are trophies up for grabs, so let’s make sure we play some highly competitive and entertaining tennis over the next ten days. Let’s ensure that Championships 2020 are remembered more for the quality of the matches than the tedious progression of the pesky virus.

Good luck to all our players this week and next!

The Committee
