Player Guidelines – Thistleworth Tennis Club (April 2021)


The following guidelines have been produced to assist with the safe reintroduction of tennis at Thistleworth Tennis Club. These should be observed by all members.


At all times whilst at the club, players should adhere to the Government’s social distancing guidelines (staying at least 2m away from others), and practice public health advice for hygiene.


Both singles play and doubles play is now permitted with people from outside of your household, as long as you remain 2 metres apart as far as possible – meaning that four people from different households can now play doubles


Coached sessions should be limited to groups of no more than 15 people, including the coach(es)
