The updated guidelines are attached with the latest [NEW] and [UPDATED] points in red. The guidelines must be read through and followed before going on court. Some points are summarised below.
Thanks for all your cooperation and we look forward to seeing you back playing safely on court again. If there are any questions on interpretation, please do get back to us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

HTC Committee

Summary points for players but please read and follow the full guidelines.
All play must be booked beforehand using our on line booking system. It is not acceptable just to roll up as we need to know who has been playing in the event of a future outbreak.

  • Take hand sanitizer with you and only use your own equipment and players should not share any items.
  • Only take equipment that you need to play with. Clean and wipe down any items before and after use.
  • Use alcohol gel after touching any court gates, nets, fences etc and avoid doing so where possible.
  • Only use your own balls for serving and don’t touch other player’s balls with your hands.
  • Allow others to leave before you enter the court and ensure you leave the court before the end of your allotted time so that it is empty for the next players.
  • Always keep the social distancing, especially if playing doubles and if changing ends do this from opposite side of the net posts. In doubles, do not change partners during a session.

 

Coaching and Club Programmes

Coaching and Club programmes shall be reinstated as soon as practical and the Club is monitoring the situation over the next month to see how things settle down before making any changes. For the time being only one to one coaching is being run.
