EXCEL TENNIS ACADEMT COVID-19 POLICY

Updated 12/05/2020

It is essential that all of our players, coaches and clubs take the reasonable steps to create a safe environment in which we are able to play tennis again. Our COVID-19 policy guides all parties to ensure these steps are maintained.  The policy is as follows:

Coaches

  • To administer hand sanitiser gel to pupils at the beginning and end of each session.

  • To keep their own equipment isolated - not to be used by other coaches and their pupils.

  • To wipe down any borrowed equipment both before and after being given to pupils.

  • To keep contact records of who, when and where they have lessons with.

  • To make adaptations to drills and methods of providing feedback/instruction.

  • To book court space at staggered times to other coaches.

  • To communicate with customers clearly and regularly, making them aware in advance of the measures being put in place for sessions, and guidelines they should follow when attending

  • To avoid using other equipment such as courtside benches, net handles or court sweepers where possible

  • To maintain proper distancing measures both off and on court.

  • To follow NHS guidelines in regard to showing symptoms and contact with those showing symptoms.

Players & Parents

  • To not pay for sessions with cash (sessions can be paid for online)

  • To bring their own equipment (especially rackets and hand sanitiser) whenever possible.

  • To be aware that usual club facilities are not in operation - this includes toilet facilities.

  • To wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before leaving home to go to the court (or use an alcohol gel if washing hands is not possible)

  • To avoid using other equipment such as courtside benches, net handles or court sweepers where possible

  • To maintain proper distancing measures both off and on court

  • To follow NHS guidelines in regard to showing symptoms and contact with those showing symptoms.

Clubs

Tennis clubs will enact their own policies that may differ from each other. However, as a minium we expect:

  • To limit court useage and bookings, as to minimise contact between people of different households and contact between people and surfaces (nets, gates, padlocks etc.)

  • To keep indoor facilites shut

  • To ensure usual access to first aid and emergency equipment is maintained (in some cases this may require limited access to the clubhouse being possible)

  • To ensure their members maintain proper distancing guidelines

  • To ensure their members follow NHS guidelines in regard to showing symptoms and contact with those showing symptoms
