Hi tennis members,

Play started last Wednesday and first on-court were Rowan and Kyle. Good to see Rowan still striking the ball with conviction.

wanderers club Tennis is back 1

Phase 2 play:

Phase 2 starts on 30 June when play will be open to all tennis members. The TSA definition for phase 2 is ‘All other TSA affiliated club players’. This means that no visitors are permitted and that all players must be paid up club members.

Court Bookings:

A few people have arrived at the courts without having booked. A reminder that pre-booking of courts is now essential. All play be supervised by a coach which means that you must pre-book with a coach to ensure they will be present. If you arrive at the courts and there is no coach present, you will not be permitted to play.

How do I get back on the court?

Supporting our coaches

Our coaches and stringers have had no income during lockdown, and even with return to play under level 3 we can see it will be a long time before their income returns to normal. The easiest way to support them – and your tennis – is to book some coaching lessons!

We are also looking for other ways to provide relief, if you have any ideas or can offer support please contact me at [email protected]
