Do the coaches wear masks?
No, our coaches do not wear masks, but they maintain social distance and ensure that they use hand sanitizer. Teaching outdoors is also much safer for all concerned.
Can players wear masks?
Absolutely, please make a decision based on your comfort level for you and your family.
Is playing tennis safe?
Tennis is one of the safest sports to play during this time of COVID, with minimal contact, outdoor spaces, and easy social distancing but our priority is to keep everyone safe and happy while following the rules.
What are our COVID 19 safety protocols?
- The tables and chairs by the courts are reserved for the players and coaches only. Parents must bring their own chairs if you wish to stay and spectate.
No eating inside the fenced court area next to the courts.
We emphasise staying safely socially distanced when waiting to get on the court.
Junior players must have their names on their water bottles.
Junior and adult players must place their bags in the designated areas and not on the chairs.
Hand sanitizer will be provided at the courts and will be used after collecting the balls.
A mask is not compulsory but players are free to wear them whenever they wish.

Junior 8 Week Classes
What racquet size is right for my child?
In the event of adverse weather, we will email to cancel class. Depending on the weather issue (rain, high winds, too cold) we will give as much advance notice as possible, however, unexpected changes in the weather mean last-minute cancellations do happen! If it has rained earlier in the day, we are usually able to dry the courts so unless players/parents receive an email, CLASS IS ON!
