Government and LTA Guidance

Updated (04/01/2021)

Following the Government announcement that the country will be going into lockdown on 5th January, the LTA have confirmed that all tennis facilities need to close with immediate effect (full details can be found on the LTA website). As such, our courts will be locked until further notice.

The LTA have noted that as tennis is a naturally socially distanced sport and important for people’s physical and mental health, they will continue to liaise with the Government to ask them to allow players back on court as soon as possible.

Until then, take care and stay safe.

In addition to those necessitated by the government and LTA, the KSTC committee put the following measures in place to further aid social distancing and minimise surface contact:

  1. Use of the KSTC courts is strictly for members. If you are interested in becoming a member please view our Membership page.
  2. A member cannot book a court to play with a non-member(s) / guest(s).
  3. 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 car park gate if you are the last person to leave.
  4. The clubhouse can now be used, but please do so in accordance with the guidance posted on the door.
  5. Our First Aid kit is kept in a container inside the club house.
  6. Hand sanitiser is attached to the net posts on each court. Please use it after touching any gates or locks and before and at the end of each session / match.
  7. The benches on the courts have been removed and the nets have been measured and immobilised (please do not try to wind them).
  8. Courts must be booked using KSTC’s online court booking system. Members cannot use the courts unless they have made a prior online booking.
