The Club will remain closed until the Scottish Government permits the resumption of sports. Tennis Clubs in England were permitted to re-open on 14th May and we are hopeful that we will be able to re-open for tennis in the near future. We have carried out a risk assessment for tennis activity at the Club in accordance with Guidelines issued by the LTA on 12th May. We are committed to adherence to those guidelines when tennis activity resumes in Scotland in order to minimise the risk of spreading coronavirus due to activities at the Club.
Sadly, the resumption of indoor and close contact sports is unlikely to be permitted in the near future and our squash courts will have to remain closed.
The club has provided four new table tennis bats & balls. They’re kept in the bottom of the locker in the function room.
