Boyle Community Tennis Club has been busy making preparations to ensure the safe re-opening of the club on Monday, May 18th, in accordance with Tennis Ireland guidelines.
The Tennis Ireland guidelines for safely returning to play during Phase 1 of the Covid Re-opening Plan were issued on Friday, May 8th. Play will be restricted and full guidance is available from the Tennis Ireland website or from the Boyle Tennis Club Facebook page.
Some of the restrictions include the following:
*Facilities can only be used by members during this phase (up to date contact details are a strict requirement for anyone who is playing).
*Courts must be pre-booked with no walk in-play allowed (to allow for ease of contact tracing should the case arise).
*Singles play only unless doubles partners are from the same household.
The club has put a number of measures in place to ensure safe resumption of play including an online court booking system, staggered playing times to minimise contacts, court side hand sanitisers, temporary barrier fencing at court entrance to minimise risk of walk-in play and the display of information on current guidelines.
Any members wishing to renew their current membership for this season should contact [email protected].
No play will be allowed until membership forms have been returned and players sign up to the current club and Tennis Ireland guidelines.
The annual Boyle Community Tennis Club membership rates will run until May 2021 due to the late start to the season. Rates are: Adult, €25; Juniors, €20; Family, €60; Low Income Adult, €20; Low Income Family, €50.
