Royal Ascot Tennis Club - COVID 19 Statement.

As we continue to face unprecedented changes due to Covid-19, the health and well being of all our members and guests remains our utmost priority.

We would like to pass on a huge thanks to the incredible and dedicated people behind our club, and to our Members for your ongoing support and patience at this time.

Restricted Play from 13th May 2020

  • RATC Article Date 12.05.2020 - 5.28pm / Updated: 13.05.2020 - 11.09pm

We know how important it is for people to be active, and the role tennis can have in the physical and mental wellbeing of those that play it. By its very nature, tennis is an activity whereby close person to person contact can be avoided, with the Government saying tennis is a good example of an activity that can be undertaken in a way compliant with social distancing restrictions.

Based on Government guidelines, and following the adjustment of lockdown restrictions from 13th May 2020, the RATC has developed a set of practical guidelines for Members (and Members Guests) to follow so that tennis can be played at Royal Ascot Tennis Club, with STRICT Restrictions as follows:

  • Maximum of two people per court (i.e. singles play only). Players can be from different households
  • The only exception to the above is where a group of four players are all from the same household in which case they can play doubles
  • Coached sessions should be limited to one to one coaching activity only
  • Members may enter Clubhouse ONLY to turn on/off floodlights. One person only. Please use the Hand Sanitiser provided inside the clubhouse, for hands and equipment (door handles, light key, light boxes).
  • All activity must be consistent with the government guidance regarding health, travel, social distancing and hygiene at all times.
  • All courts need to be booked through Clubspark (Paid Members Only).
  • Maximum court booking 90 mins (no consecutive bookings)
  • Please use the appropriate gate for the court (to avoid crossing courts)
  • Please bring your own balls (all balls have been removed from the clubhouse)
  • Change ends using different sides of the net (to ensure social distancing)
  • Please remember to bring hand sanitiser, gloves etc for use after using the court gates and locks.
  • Use of the RATC courts and facilities is entirely at your own risk.

    We expect many changes in the coming weeks but rest assured, Royal Ascot Tennis Club will continue to update you here, on any key changes as they happen.
