IMPORTANT: Following the latest government and LTA advice on the coronavirus pandemic, we are re-opening the courts from Monday 18th May subject to a number of restrictions.

Current Restrictions

This page contains guidance from KSTC and the LTA/Government regarding playing tennis while 'lockdown' conditions remain in place. It is each member's responsibility to adhere to these to ensure safety for all members.

Government and LTA Guidance

Following the Government’s Announcement on 10th May, the LTA in discussion with government has produced a set of practical guidelines to follow so that restricted play at tennis clubs in England can resume. 

These LTA guidelines must be followed by members if they wish to resume playing at King's Sutton Tennis Club (KSTC) whilst ‘lockdown’ conditions remain in place across the country.

Government / LTA Guidance

KSTC Guidance

The KSTC committee has also put the following measures in place for this period to further aid social distancing and minimise surface contact:

  1. The clubhouse will remain locked and cannot be used by members.
  2. The courts will remain locked as usual when not in use and only members will have the court padlock code. Please lock the courts and the carpark gate if you are the last person to leave.
  3. As the clubhouse is locked, our First Aid kit and hand sanitiser will be kept in a weatherproof container just inside the entrance gate to Courts 1&2.
  4. Members should also bring their own hand sanitiser and use it before and after touching any gates or locks.
  5. Members must also bring their own balls and use according to the LTA guidelines.
  6. The benches on the courts have been removed and will remain locked away in the clubhouse during this period. The nets have been measured and immobilised – please do not try to wind them.
  7. Courts must be booked using KSTC’s new online court booking system. There are specific, defined playing slots each day with staggered starting times to aid social distancing. Members cannot use the courts unless they have made a prior online booking.
  8. Only over 18's can make a court booking. Parents/guardians must make bookings on behalf of players aged under 18.
