Covid/Dome Urgent Update for Members14 October 2020
The LTA have now updated the regulations in force for Clubs in Tier 2 areas. Fylde is at present in Tier 2.
Tennis in the Dome
With immediate effect indoor tennis is prohibited in the Dome except for the following :
1* Singles and doubles involving members of the same household.
2* Coaching involving Greg and one individual or Greg and members of the same household.
3* Group coaching for Under 18’s.
Spectators are not allowed in the Dome at any time
The protocols remain the same but as advised socialising before and after tennis is prohibited except with members of the same household.
Regrettably this means that effectively it is no longer possible to play tennis in the dome unless you are being coached by Greg or all players are members of the same household.
Payments in advance
All booking fees will be refunded to members who are unable to play in the dome and have pre-paid. Further details of how this will be done will follow once we have decided how best to proceed.
PLEASE DO NOT BE TEMPTED TO BREAK THE LAW AND PLAY IN THE DOME UNLESS YOU MEET THE STRICT CRITERIA OUTLINED ABOVE.
