COVID Reminder

  • No spectators are allowed
  • Players should wear a mask before going on court
  • Use hand sanitiser before and after match

 

We have received updated Covid guidelines from Tennis Ireland which will impact to some extent the previous instructions we had issued. Please read these guidelines carefully so that our tournament can operate in a safe manner. 

  • Unfortunately, there can be NO spectators - only players who are due to play a match should go to club. The exception is that for juniors, one parent/guardian can be in attendance and they should wear a mask.
  • Players who are waiting to play should wear a mask until they go on court.
  • 2m social distancing must be respected. We have marked crosses on the mini-courts that are 2m apart to enable social distancing for players who are waiting to play, or guardians in attendance.
  • If arriving early for a match, please advise the match co-ordinator that you are available to play and where you can be found. If your start time is not imminent, you will have to wait in your car, or outside the club area and the coordinator will let you know when your match can start. 
  • After finishing a match, you should inform the co-ordinator of the result and then leave the club immediately. If you are scheduled to play another match and the start time is not imminent, you will need to wait in your car, or outside the club area until your match is ready to start.
  • The clubhouse is closed except for toilets. Shower facilities will not be available.
  • If showing any Covid symptoms, do not attend the club but inform the men's or ladies' captain.
  • Use the hand sanitisers on arrival and departure from club.
  • Maintain good respiratory etiquette.

Thank you for your cooperation.

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!

December 2020

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
Tennis Ireland
