Dear Members,

The almost-mythical date of June 29th has finally arrived and we are delighted to enjoy new freedoms and to welcome back our squash members, it’s fantastic to have a full complement back playing sport.

As the country enters a new phase of the roadmap for re-opening our society, we have a series of new protocols for the club. Please see below and remember to always be mindful of your fellow members – don’t come to the club if you feel unwell, if you have been in contact with a known or suspected case of Covid19, or if you have returned from travel in the past 14 days.

1. Players may play more than once a day. Back-to-back bookings with the same players are not allowed under club rules. Be mindful of your other members when booking courts; everyone is eager to play.

2. Booking procedures remain the same. Book a court two days out and name all of the players and guardians (where possible) who will be present. Courts can still be cancelled right up until the court time begins, so if you can’t play, cancel your court. There is no excuse for no-shows and it is deeply unfair to your fellow members who want to play, and to those who have to monitor courts for contact tracing. Repeat offenders will be penalised.

3. Doubles are now allowed with members of another household. Hurray! Players should aim to remain 2 metres apart.

4. Under 12’s must have adult supervision whilst playing

5. Tennis balls may be shared. Remember not to touch your face after touching tennis balls. Bring sanitiser and sanitise hands before and after your service game. Try not to pick up balls with your hands, continue to kick or use your racket to pick them up.

6. The club toilets will now be open to members. There is a one in – one out policy and we would ask members to keep the toilets as clean as possible, there will be cleaning supplies out to help with this.

7. Lights may be used. Access to the lights area is on the basis of one person at a time. The club is open until 10pm, please leave quietly and promptly.

8. The lounge, balcony and common areas remain closed for the moment.

9. There will be no car parking at the club during this phase. There should be no parking on double yellow lines outside the club, our neighbours have frequently complained about this and we should respect their wishes.

Any queries can be directed to

Most importantly, enjoy your tennis and squash. We are lucky indeed to be part of this wonderful club.

With best wishes,

Your Committee
