Doubles play permitted – guidelines from 1 June 2020

The LTA have updated their guidance for players and have confirmed that doubles play is now permitted from 1 June 2020.  The highlights are as follows:
  • TENNIS ACTIVITY
    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 6 people, including the coach(es) 
 
  • MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING Other than where players are from the same household:
    Stay at least two metres away from other players (including during play, when taking breaks and before and after play)
    Do not make physical contact with other players (such as shaking hands or high five)
    Avoid chasing the ball down to another court if other players are using it
    For doubles, consider agreeing in advance which player will take the shot if a ball travels to the centre of the court
    For coached sessions, pay careful attention to the instructions of the coach
  • EQUIPMENT & FACILITIES
    Players do not now need to use their own clearly marked tennis balls – however, if you choose to use shared balls then extra care must be taken to ensure you do not touch your face during play, and you should clean your hands before play and immediately after finishing (use alcohol gel if required)
    Players should still avoid using their hands to pick up tennis balls from other
    Avoid touching surfaces around the court – the nets should be at the correct height
    Observe good hand hygiene – there is a supply of hand sanitiser and anti-bacterial wipes at the courts, but please bring your own if you can
    Do not use the clubhouse
    Don’t leave anything at the courts – please take home all litter and drinks bottles
