Members & Social Members,
Well there is some good news regarding the COVID 19 latest restrictions! You can still play tennis in a limited way. You will only be able to play tennis with your family and or with one other person that is not part of your family. It is your responsibility to abide by this rule for the safety of all participating in playing tennis. To ensure that the 1.5 metres distant is maintained only one court per enclosure will be available for bookings, for a maximum time of 1.5 hours. As such only courts 1,3,5,7 and 9 will be available.
Before you play
Please stay at home if you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days or have even mild flu-like symptoms. If you are in a high risk health category, please consider whether you should be playing tennis at any time during this period, please do not take unnecessary risks.
To protect against infection, you should:
Wash/sterilise your hands before and after you play
Avoid touching your face while playing.
Do not share water bottles
Bring your own bottle already full.
Bring your own hand sanitiser
Cover your coughs and sneezes with your elbow
Be aware of what surfaces you touch and ensure you clean them after play
Book A Court Bookings
To ensure we can keep a record of each person who attends PTC, bookings are mandatory and all bookings must include the players you are playing with. When making a booking you will need to use the ‘ADD PLAYER’ feature. We would also encourage all facility users to download the COVIDSafe app to assist with participant tracking in the case of a positive COVID-19 test result of a participant.

The Clubhouse at PTC will remain closed. Access to the toilets in the downstairs clubhouse will be available, via your pin code, if required but please keep access to a minimum. There are to be no gatherings in the clubhouse downstairs or any access to the kitchen.
In House Night Competitions
Until further restrictions are eased there will be no Night Competitions, Social Thursdays or Friday Morning Ladies.

Book a Court SMS
Tennis Australia have advised that as of Thursday 9th July, that all Book a Court Bookings will no longer receive a SMS message confirming their code. All bookings will continue to receive a code on screen and a confirmation email.
Again, we ask all members to ensure these guidelines are followed to ensure that the PTC can remain open. Please ensure that you do not hang around after your hit, make sure you keep your distance when changing ends and ensure you wash your hands before and after your game!
