Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Sunday 10th May, the management committee has been busy assessing the risks involved in resuming tennis at our club.
We have developed a strategy, installed sanitising equipment, and drawn up a plan of restricted play which enables us to get our members back where they love to be :- on court.
For the time being,
our courts must remain closed to the public,
but they are now
open for Cary Park Tennis Club members
Our junior training program will remain suspended
One-to-one coaching is now available for members.

We have introduced many new (and hopefully temporary) rules to ensure a safe environment and only two players are permitted per court (no doubles).
In line with the LTA’s guidance, the following code of conduct and play is set out by the club and must be observed by everyone using the facilities at Cary Park :-

Reported in the Mail on 2nd Feb 2020:-
“Don’t bother with running or cycling – tennis is the sport that best protects against age-related health problems, according to a new study. Under three hours of tennis every week linked to stronger muscles and bones in 43 adults aged up to 65 – protecting them from common conditions such as osteoparosis and osteoarthritis in later life. A control group of 47 in the study at Liverpool Hope University, who took part in exersises such as running and cycling, did not see the same benefits. Poor musculoskeletal function increases the risk of developing muscle and bone-wasting conditions, which accounts for a third of all British GP appointments.”
We brought free tennis to 500 local schoolchildren last season. Click here to see how
