Dear Member,

We are all counting down the days 'til we can be back on court and not too many sleeps left! We are very aware that everyone will be very keen to play and we want to ensure fair access to all of our members. The Committee has prepared the below guidelines for return to play and we ask that you all familiarise yourselves with the content.

GLTC Return to Play Guidelines

We would hope that the guidelines are clear but if there are any questions please email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for clarifications. Potentially we will issue an FAQ document next week if we see similar queries from several members.

We are so lucky that tennis is one of the first sports to be allowed to return and it is imperative that we do so in a safe manner and responsible manner.

Court bookings will be available 4 days in advance opening on Thursday 22nd April.

So looking forward to having you all back in the Club again.

Jan Pettersen

Club President

Dear Members,

At last we now have a date for the return to tennis and whilst we had hoped it would be sooner, we are so looking forward to getting you all back to GLTC. 

The committee is now working on our back to play protocols to ensure that all of our members will have fair and safe access to courts when we re-open and that we will all enjoy a tennis filled summer ahead.

Junior coaching will commence on Monday 26th April and we will be communicating all of our return to play plans to everyone closer to the time.

In the meantime, we hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather and wish you all a very Happy chocolate filled Easter!

Dear Members,

We are disappointed that we have to close the club for the time being. 

Junior coaching is also put on hold but we will start the new term as soon as we are able to. 

Take care,

GLTC Committee

 

Please see the latest update from Tennis Ireland received by email from Richard Fahy CEO:

An Taoiseach, Micheál Martin, this evening announced the return of “full scale” Level 5 restrictions from midnight tonight until at least January 31st in a bid to contain the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

Unfortunately, this means that no indoor or outdoor tennis activities, including those involving children, should take place with an exception for designated High Performance Players*

Since the start of the pandemic in Ireland, Tennis Ireland have fully endorsed the public health advice of the Irish Government.  We have engaged extensively and successfully with government to highlight the health and mental health benefits of tennis and the strong compliance with the safety protocols which has ensured that our sport has been a safe outlet for people of all ages during the pandemic. We will endeavour to maintain this engagement in an effort to ensure our sport remains closed for as short a period as possible and to seek additional supports for our clubs during these difficult times. 

Regards Richard Fahey
Chief Executive
