We are pleased to confirm that ATPC will reopen on Monday 29th March 2021. You will be able to book courts 7 days prior to this date.
We would like to say a BIG thank you to everyone who has renewed their membership with a donation. Your donations with gift aid added totals around £2,000 to date. This will go towards the court improvement project.
There will be club sessions as follows:
Please remember if you are playing before the start of a club session you will need to stop play and join in with the club session which will start promptly subject to numbers.
Tueday 30th March 1.30 pm to 4 pm
Wednesday 31st March 6.30pm to 8.30/9 pm
FRIDAY 2ND APRIL 11 am - 1 pm or later A ONE OFF CLUB SESSION
Saturday 3rd April 11 am - 1 pm or later
Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday club sessions are ongoing. We are looking at adding one more club session per week.
Drop in Cardio sessions will start on Saturday 3rd April and can be booked on the website NOW.
All coaching courses start on Monday 5th April for 7 weeks. Full details are on the website and courses are available to book. We attach two flyers - one for youth coaching and one for adult cardio courses and drop in. We can only run these courses and sessions if we have enough people to cover the coaches fees..
We will be offering members the opportunity to buy tennis balls at a competitive price. They are Dunlop Fort tubes of four balls for £7. You will be required to note your name and method of payment when you take a tube. Payment will be either cash into an honesty box or by direct payment into the bank. Some committee members can also take card payments in person. More details will be available in the clubhouse.
Your shoe tags will be ready for collection from the clubhouse from Monday 29th March but only during club or coaching sessions or if you have your own key. Please sign the sheet confirming the shoe tag number and that you are happy for your contact details to be shared (purely for the purpose of playing tennis). All family members and juniors need to wear a shoe tag at all times on the courts. See below for information about accessing the clubhouse.
We are hoping to run a Junior Tournament in May.
We are hoping courts 1 & 2 will be repainted in the next couple of weeks. This is weather permitting. The nets and benches have been removed for this purpose. If it is unable to be done, it will be postponed until May or June and the courts will be closed for 4 days.
Here is the link to the LTA's latest advice on a simple to read grid:
Access to the toilet is allowed so we will open the clubhouse during coaching and club sessions. We will have a one way system around the central table where you can also collect your shoe tags and buy tennis balls. Please ensure you socially distance from other members and use the hand sanitisers on court and next to the clubhouse. Use of the clubhouse is not allowed in any other circumstance e.g. for socialising. No spectating is allowed except one guardian/parent per child during coaching sessions. If you require access for floodlights please ensure you or a fellow member has a key.
All the committee are looking forward to welcoming members back and to seeing you all on court.
