Hire of Tennis Court – COVID 19 restrictions
Bray Parish Council is keen to allow residents use of the tennis court facility but wish to ensure that use of the court is compliant with social distancing restrictions and the safety of users. These guidelines have been produced in line with the Government guidance on public spaces, outdoor activity and exercise published on 11 May 2020 and will be amended in accordance with further guidance. For further information , please refer to the Tennis Court Policy.

Tennis Booking Restrictions
In line with current advice, only two people at any one time may use the court, unless players are from the same household.
Use of the court is only permitted by prior booking (please see details below)
No social activities should take place at the Court.
Each player should bring their own equipment.
Booking the Courts
Bookings must be made at least 24 hours in advance through the Assistant Clerk. Her contact details are firstname.lastname@example.org Please note that the Assistant Clerk is only available between 9:30 and 12:30.
Payment for the courts must be made by BACS in advance of play quoting user surname and date and time of booking eg Smith 13/05 10:00. Details of the bank account to be credited will be supplied at the time of booking.
As there is only one entrance to the court the parish council will be implementing a buffer period between bookings to allow time for the previous users to leave, we ask that users respect that this is for their protection and do not exceed the time period booked.
Using the Courts

Users are asked not to adjust the net.
Users are asked to refrain from using the bench in the court.

COVID 19 Safety reminders
The Parish Council is unable to provide hand washing facilities or hand sanitiser and the courts are not cleaned. Users are therefore asked to ensure that they wash their hands for 20 seconds as soon as possible both before and after using the tennis court and to make use of hand sanitiser after opening and closing the tennis court gate.
Users are reminded to catch coughs and sneezes in tissues – Follow Catch it, Bin it, Kill it and to avoid touching face, eyes, nose or mouth with unclean hands.
