Return to Play – DPLTC 13/3/21

Further to the Tennis Wales Announcement posted today, we detail below more information specific to DPLTC.

Courts will be open from 08.30 on Saturday, 13th March.
Courts should be booked via Club Spark.
It is a requirement under Welsh Government Law that all attendees sign in for the purposes of Test, Trace & Protect.
Sheets are available in the Club Foyer and the “Bus Shelter” adjacent to Courts 4,5 & 6.
Toilet facilities will be open, but changing rooms and all other areas of the clubhouse will remain closed.
The wearing of face coverings is mandatory indoors.
Singles may be played against any other club member or guest.
Doubles may only be played by 2 members of one household against a pairing who are both members of one household.
Coaching on a one to one basis is permitted – please contact Rob and the coaching team for details. 07931 665431
2 metre social distancing should be maintained at all times.
Hand sanitizer should be used before and after play – it would greatly assist us if you brought your own.

It is not possible at this time for us to arrange any form of Social Tennis, so our normal Saturday Mixed; Monday Ladies; Tuesday Mixed; Wednesday Team and Thursday Men’s Club sessions are suspended until further notice.
We very much hope that, provided the situation continues to improve, it will not be too long before they can resume.

Detailed below are some other WG relaxations – which may be of interest to some:

The new stay local rule will mean people can leave their homes and travel within their local area – usually within 5 miles as a rule of thumb. Local outdoor sports facilities will also be opened.

From Saturday 13 March:

No more than 4 people from 2 households will be able to meet in their local area outdoors, including in gardens. Children under 11 and carers do not count towards this limit. There must be no indoors mixing and social distancing should be followed.
Outdoor sports facilities can reopen, including tennis courts, golf courses and bowling greens. A maximum of 4 people from 2 households can take part in activities using local sports facilities.
Indoor care home visits can resume for one designated visitor, with the permission of the care home.
From Monday 15 March:

All primary pupils and those in qualifications years will return. Schools will have the flexibility to bring in year 10 and 12 pupils, to support them to progress to the next stage of their learning, and more learners will return to colleges. There will also be flexibility for in-school check-ins for all other pupils. All learners will return after the Easter break.
Hairdressers and barbers can reopen by appointment only to cut hair.
We look forward to seeing you all back on court – albeit in a somewhat restricted manner.

We all realise that this pandemic is not over – but with common sense and the following of guidance, we can hopefully return to normality – though that may still be some way off.
