Social Tennis Sessions

Thank you for your continued support in keeping the club a safe and enjoyable place to play tennis.
We are now in a position to restart some of the Social Tennis sessions, in line with updated Government and LTA Guidance. The first session will be Sunday 2nd August. We will be doing this as a staged approach, to ensure we are able to run it safely.
All social tennis sessions will need to be pre-booked so we can control numbers and have data required for ’track & trace’. Spaces will be limited on all sessions.


Sessions available

All sessions will be organised by a member of the ACTC coaching team to help check players in, arrange matches and help promote social distancing. Those waiting to go on court must be respectful of existing social distancing guidelines. If it rains heavily, the session will be cancelled.
Sessions will be able to be booked a week in advance via Clubspark – you MUST pre-book in order to attend the session. Anyone not on the list maybe turned away, if the session is at capacity. Bookings can be done via the links above, 7 days in advance. Anyone who may struggle to book, please contact Mike Triffitt who will help you book your place. 


If you can no longer attend, please log into your ClubSpark account as soon as possible and cancel the session, so other members can book the place. 
Players are to access the club vis the big gates next to the river bank. 4 balls per court will be provided and a small hand sanitiser to be used between rounds. The clubhouse will remain closed other than for using the toilet. 
We will continue to monitor the demand for social tennis and also any feedback from members to try and keep expanding the social tennis programme.


Any questions, please get in touch

In Group 1 the top two pairs will advance to the quarter finals. Groups 2-6 inclusive the winner of each section qualifies. The best runner up from Groups 2-5 inclusive will be the final quarter final seed. Each pair will therefore have a minimum of three matches whilst its four for those in groups 1 and 6. Each Quarter Final winner then advances to the semi final with two winners making the final. If there is a tie at the top of a group, the winner will be determined on head to head record. If still unresolved the pair needing the least number of individual games will advance (for example a pair winning in two sets would beat a pair winning in three sets etc)  Each match is best of three sets with a championship tie break to ten played as set three. If players want to play a full final set that is fine if both agree and time allows.

If players can arrange their group matches themselves starting from week commencing June 22nd and text me the scores I will update the tables thanks. I will forward each player a list of their opponents contact details. Any questions contact Mike Triffitt on 07508 057744

Mens, Ladies And Mixed Doubles Competitions

With the continued success of the singles tournaments we now plan to run events surrounding doubles with Men’s, Ladies and Mixed competitions next. In a change from the normal end of season events, where partners are allocated, we are asking members to organise their own partners for these three competitions. People often enjoy teaming up with friends and family and this provides the perfect opportunity. Don’t worry we will still accept entries from those without partners and I will allocate . It is hoped we can copy the successful group system employed in the singles and this again guarantees three matches at this stage.

So once again in the first instance WhatsApp or text Michael Triffitt direct on 07508 057744 with your pairing or individual entry and I will send details of each event in due course thanks.

Tennis Subscription Renewal Notice

At the start of lockdown in March the WCLTC committee advised all members that we would be suspending the subscription renewal until the end of June. With restrictions on the playing of tennis recently eased we are now asking members to pay a reduced subscription rate to cover the remaining 9 month period July 1st 2020 until March 31st 2021.

Taking into account the loss of team tennis, access to Wimbledon tickets and certain Covid-19 restrictions on play the committee has agreed that the revised rate will be 50% of the full year subscription. We sincerely hope that you will continue to support the club throughout this year by renewing your membership using the link below.

https://clubspark.lta.org.uk/WetherbyCastlegarthLTC/Membership/Join

Financially, this decision will leave the club able to meet all of its expenditure requirements for the forthcoming year due to the support we have received locally and from the LTA. In addition we are also pleased to welcome many new members that have taken advantage of our free April-June membership offer. We hope that you have enjoyed playing tennis at Wetherby and will take up full membership for the remainder of the year. If you are part of a household or family our group membership packages offer further discounted rates.

For anyone who is unable to rejoin immediately due to shielding or financial constraints please do feel free to contact the club later in the year when we will be able to offer a reduced renewal rate and get you back on court.

UPDATED RULES FOR RESTRICTED PLAY AT WETHERBY CASTLEGARTH TENNIS CLUB

Many thanks to all members who have respected the restrictions the Club has currently been operating under. Your compliance is appreciated, and reflects well on our Club to those in the community who monitor our compliance.

The Wetherby Castlegarth Tennis Club (WCTC) Committee have reviewed the Government statements (Thursday 28th May) and the subsequent updated LTA guidance of a safe return to restricted tennis play issued today 31st May 2020, and we are content to consequently update our rules for play from 1st June 2020. Members will continue to play at their at their own risk, and with the easing of restrictions for play, comes the members responsibility for adhering to the Government/LTA advice and the WCTC rules for play.

As a reminder, only members (not visitors sorry at this stage) who have pre-booked a court online, are allowed to play currently. As previously, do not leave your home to play tennis if Government advice means you should stay at home because you or someone you live with has, or has had, symptoms of COVID-19.

Both singles and doubles play is now permitted with people from outside of your household as long as you remain 2 metres apart as far as possible. This means that four people from different households can now play doubles. You may consider agreeing in advance which player takes the shot if a ball travels to the centre of the court.

For the foreseeable future the Clubhouse will remain closed to all members and coaches. This will remain under review and we will update members as soon as this changes. This will mean that the use of floodlights will continue to not be available at this point. There will consequently be no toilets available for use at this time. Please continue to plan and prepare accordingly.

Players should wash their hands with Soap and Water for at least 20 secs before leaving home to go to the Club, and need to bring and use their own hand gel to clean their hands after touching shared surfaces.

Players should not share equipment/food/drink. Players are no longer required to identify and use their own tennis balls clearly marked with their own initials unless they wish to, however if you choose to use shared balls, please take extra care to avoid touching your face during play, and clean your hands immediately before and after play with alcohol gel. If you share equipment (e.g. racquets), please thoroughly clean before and after use. Also use alcohol gel after touching any court gates, fences, benches etc and avoid doing so where possible.

A one-way system will be maintained for court access to minimise individuals coming into contact, and the online booking system has been amended to stagger court times and introduce a 15minute changeover time. Please only book complete one hour sessions to be considerate to other members and avoid changeover contact.

The Club will continue to endeavour to provide additional hand sanitisation stations to supplement (not replace) the individuals provision at the entry/exit to the Club. This is not a substitute for individuals needing to provide their own hand sanitising supply. Some players may consider the use of gloves to and from the tennis court to minimise risk.

Please ensure that you leave the court before the end of your allotted time so that it is empty for the next players.

During play, members should remain at least two metres away from other players at all times and either avoid changing ends or agree to change ends at opposite sides of the net. Players should avoid chasing down balls onto another court if other players are using it. If using your own individually marked tennis balls, use a racquet or foot to return them to your opponent as you would tennis balls to other players on another court. LTA Players Guidance can be found via https://www.lta.org.uk/globalassets/news/2020/lta-guidance-for-tennis-players—covid-19.pdf

The first member to open the Club should leave the gate open and sanitise their hands subsequently, and the last person should pull the gate behind themselves and sanitise their hands immediately.

The numbers of members who can be coached at one time is under review. The max number under LTA guidelines is 6 people, however the implications at WCTC are yet to be decided. New coaching protocols have been put in place by Angela Crossley and her team. Please contact Angela if you have specific questions or an interest in booking lessons. https://clubspark.lta.org.uk/AngelaCrossleyCoaching/News/c635beb1-991d-4906-85b9-222fd9fc3250

Do not congregate after playing. Benches are not available to members at this time.

The First Aid Box will remain in the Clubhouse for genuine emergencies, where an accident will be recorded in the Accident book.

If a member has played at WCTC and develops symptoms of COVID-19, you must follow the HMG guidelines on ‘test and trace’ on the gov.uk website.

As stated you must be a member to play. Currently all 2019-20 members have had their membership rolled over until the end of June for free. This is a good time for members to encourage family members to try tennis – as new membership will also be free until the end of June – but you must have applied through our website https://wetherbytennis.org.uk/membership/

Please continue to stick to the Club’s Car Parking protocols, where members can only park in our designated spaces during office hours. Please walk or cycle if you can to minimise this issue.

The Committee will continue to do our best to react to HMG/NHS/LTA advice as it becomes available, whether to tighten, or indeed further ease the current restrictions.

Thanks for your patience, discipline and compliance in playing within the above practices.

Please enjoy your tennis safely.

Regards

Steve Jones
Chairman,

on behalf of WCTC Committee

Men’s Singles Draw

The men’s final was contested by Jamie Perkins and Ollie Newsome and what a tremendous battle this turned out to be. Defending champion Jamie knew he faced a tough challenge for his crown and both finalists had reached this stage without dropping a set, despite some tough opponents in their path. Ollie has come through the junior ranks at the club and also helped the Leeds men’s first team to two recent promotions. Conditions were fairly good with an overcast afternoon and slight wind but with no sun visibility was good. The opening set was one of the most competitive and fierce of the tournament and there was little between the pair. With Jamie serving at 15-40 and 5-5, Ollie sensed a chance to claim a crucial advantage but the champion held and turning up a notch ran out a narrow 7-5 winner. This seemed to allow Jamie to relax more and he began to turn up the heat with some clinical finishing as he won the second 6-1 to retain the title.

Ollie can be very pleased with his efforts and showed how far he has improved in a relative short space. Thanks to both for great entertainment.

The men’s singles event has been well supported and a big thanks to all who took part with some excellent tennis throughout. The group system and players choosing partners ensured all the chaps were able to find fairly equal opponents in the early stages and it worked well in the testing times we find ourselves.

Congratulations to Jamie Perkins on his men’s singles win today and enjoy tucking into those biscuits later!

Tennis Singles Competitions

With many members now enjoying singles, there is perhaps an opportunity to arrange competitive tennis in this sector. Depending on interest and numbers we can explore various formats in both Men’s and Ladies events. So in the first instance if this appeals send a text or WhatsApp to register your interest to Mike Triffitt on 07508 057744 and we will announce details thereafter thanks.
