The key changes to our protocols in this phase of reopening include the following:

  • Double’s play involving players from different households is allowed from May 10th
  • Adult coaching can be delivered in pods of 6 players per court with 4 players on court at any one time from May 10th.
  • The restriction on intercounty travel will be removed from May 10th.
  • Visitors can play at the club from 10th May. All members details should be placed on the court booking system, details placed in the visitor register from the office or bar, and relevant guest fee paid for both senior and juniors. 

Competitions and events are not allowed to return in this phase but will be allowed from June 7th. Tennis Ireland competitions Department are updating the protocols in this regard and these will be issued well in advance.

Tennis Ireland are endeavouring to ascertain from Sport Ireland if limited indoor tennis activities can take place from June 7th. Additional guidance in this regard will be issued in advance of this date also.

We would kindly ask that you continue to abide by the club Covid protocol during this ongoing ease of restrictions.

We look forward to welcoming you all back on court for doubles play next week.
