As members will be all too sadly aware, the Covid-19 lockdown just announced means that we are again obliged to close the club. The LTA are asking government to exempt at least some singles tennis, and the parliamentary vote on detailed lockdown regulations will not take place until Wednesday, so in the unlikely event that changes were to result we would of course follow guidance.
However, as things currently stand, from Thursday 5th November the entire club must close until further notice. Members are requested not to come to the club please.
Volunteers will still be present from time to time and contractors will be continuing to work on the improvements to our facilities.
Despite these challenging times the club is in a healthy position to ride out the economic storm of the Covid-19 pandemic. We currently have £115,000 in the club's bank accounts; do not have any borrowings other than a small legacy loan of just £5,800; and own all our facilities outright. Over coming weeks we will provide members with further details of the club's finances and our plans for continued investment in facilities.
Please take great care and we look forward to welcoming everyone back on court again soon.
