L.T.A. Guidance – 22nd February 2021 – Resumption of outdoor play from 29th March 2021.
Following the Government’s announcement on the 22nd February 2021, the LTA have issued a notice that tennis activity can resume outdoors as from the 29th March 2021.
The LTA has produced a simple Summary Grid (see below) setting out what will and won’t be allowed as from the 29th March, although further clarification of any restrictions will be updated in due course and full guidance issued.
The club will consider the implications for our summer activities and notify members in due course.
The section below is obviously not relevant whilst the courts are closed.
Members will need to do the pre-visit health self assessment, bring their own hand sanitisers, follow all the social distancing rules etc that are set out in the guidance and inform Sandra Bennett of your visit for the purpose of meeting the Test and Trace requirements.
NHS Test and Trace
As a result of the LTA’s guidelines the club, as a Registered venue, had to introduce an NHS Test and Trace system. This is not optional. Other guidance on safety and hygiene remain in force.
1. Pre- attendance sympton check
Anyone attending a venue (including players, coaches, staff and any other visitors), should undergo a pre-attendance self-assessment for any COVID-19 symptoms using the information on the NHS website before leaving home. No-one should leave home to participate in tennis if they, or someone they live with, has symptoms of COVID -19, currently recognised as any of the following:-
· A high temperature,
· A new, continuous cough,
· A loss of, or change to, their sense of smell or taste
2. NHS TEST & TRACE
To support NHS Test and Trace, venues have to keep a temporary record of all those on site for 21 days, in a way that is manageable, and assist NHS Test and Trace with requests for that data if needed.
Therefore, as from Tuesday 21st July 2020 members must inform Sandra Bennett (firstname.lastname@example.org or by text on 07870 768895) each time they play, the day that they played, who they played with and the arrival time.
The committee has decided that for the immediate future there should be no guest players at the club. This will simplify our collection of information to just that of members only.
Welcome to the new website of Ridgeway Tennis Club.
This new site brings a fresh, more modern look to our website. It is easier to navigate around than the previous one which has served us well since 2008. The information is all relevant and will be added to whenever necessary.
I would like to thank two people for their help in developing this. Firstly, to Peter Mason, who has done all the work on the background structure, the setting up of the site and transferring some of the basic information about the club and its history from the old site. Secondly to Lindy Payling who works for Purplefish Creative Artwork who has kindly done the design of the club logo at the top of the site and the creative deisgn on the various posters etc you will see on this site, on the club’s Facebook page and club noticeboards. I hope you like all these smart and eye-catching designs too. I have completed all the other information on the site.
