Court Bookings


Covid 19 and Restricted Opening at Burgess Park Tennis Centre

 

The building is closed and site unstaffed so no toilets or changing available nor are there hand washing facilities so please bring hand sanitiser with you. 

 

We are switching to 55 minute booking slots, please could you finish your game at 55 minutes past the hour (do set a mobile alarm). 

Can you pack up and exit the courts quickly so that the new players can enter and begin their game on the hour.  

New players please wait away from the gates so that exiting players have at least 2m clear when they leave.

 

Please take a moment to go through the LTA Guidelines https://www.lta.org.uk/about-us/tennis-news/news-and-opinion/general-news/2020/march/coronavirus-covid-19---latest-advice/   (Updated 10 Sept 2020)

 

 The procedures that we are asking players to follow are as follows: 

  • Book your court time before going to the park to play  
  • Maximum 4 people per court (as of 1 June doubles play is allowed but see LTA information)
  • Please bring hand sanitiser and use this
  • Only handle your own racket and personal (marked) tennis balls
  • Avoid changing ends or change at opposite sides of the net
  • No shaking hands or physical contact with other players
  • Allow others to leave the courts before you enter and wait away from the gates
  • Try and avoid touching the gates, nets, fences to minimise transmission
  • Maintain social distancing at all times (2m apart)
  • Follow public health guidelines for hygiene
  • Do not play if you are self-isolating

STAY ALERT, CONTROL THE VIRUS AND SAVE LIVES!

Please use the gate nearest to your court.

 

We recommend that you only book the middle courts 2 and 5 if all others are full.  

 

Court 7 is older with faded lines and not suitable for competitive or advanced play.  However, it is on its own and could be a good choice for households.
