Group coaching & social play is back on under stage 1 of eased restrictions from May 15, so it’s been great to see some of you enjoying a hit at last. Our group coach-and-play sessions for adults and kids have been well received by rusty players and offer plenty of chance for distanced exercise and fun.
Tues/Wed/Fri Social groups can enjoy doubles on two courts now, leaving one court for one-on-one play or coaching – so as to adhere to the 10-person rule.
Yes, this major restriction is that only 10-people are allowed on our club premises at once. There was some confusion within our governing body but the QLD govt has now made it clear that no matter the club size or how many courts, only 10 people are allowed at the club at any one time, for now.
The best way for us to implement this 10-person limit is to say: Court hire is limited to court 1 & 3 for doubles and court 2 for singles, for members only. Courts can be booked thru the website www.peregiantennisclub.com.au.
Hiring a court: So that our club can adhere to the 10-person limit, courts can only be used via booking with the court manager via the link above or via phone 0400110482. If you call please state your time from the start of the hour and in one-hour increments (say, 1pm to 2pm or 1pm to 3pm) so we can ensure no cross-over with people in groups. You’re most welcome to wait in any area outside the club gates/carpark with your group after/before tennis, it’s pretty easy to see who is on the courts from there.
As always everyone, please stick to the guidelines of handwashing before and after play, social distancing, and most importantly staying home if you’re unwell.
If we all leave the premises promptly after play. we can be compliant with the 10-people-rule and remain open for you all. Again though, you’re most welcome to meet for your coffee or whatever outside our gates or near the carpark, there are plenty of options.
Further restrictions are most likely to be lifted June 12, which will allow for 20 players at the club at once and normal night competition can return. Feel free to call me if you’re after any options for coaching or social play for now though.
We look forward to seeing more action on court in the coming days.
