PLAY TENNIS AT HICCA

Tennis Court reopening from 14th May

With guidance from the LTA, tennis courts 1 and 3 are now open.

The LTA have advised that benches are not to be used and to ensure that the courts are hygienic. Your Booking confirmation will advise what you need to do but it is basically common sense. Use Hand sanitiser (or gloves if you have none) to use the keypad and stagger your times so that you're never within 2 meters of the previous court users.

Hayling Island Community Centre is only open to the Hayling Helpers, so unfortunately they're unable to offer toilet or drink facilities.

Spectators are actively discouraged.

 At the moment, Clubspark are still working on the option to unpause memberships. Because of this, we have decided we will be making the tennis courts free to play for everyone until this is resolved.

After consideration, Courts 1 and 3 shall be available to play on, so please make sure you get on and book as many sessions as possible for the next week or so to ensure you get earliest opportunity to play.

As always, please ensure you practise safe social distancing if playing with those not from your own household, don't use the benches and use hand sanitiser which is available at the courts, or take your own if possible.

Normal service will be resumed once Clubspark have sorted this issue out. In the meantime, please stay safe.
