Welcome to The Hallamshire Tennis, Squash & Racketball Club

MEMBER UPDATE MONDAY 6th JULY 2020

 

Following the LTA’s and the Government’s recent announcements we are excited to announce that from Monday 13th July we shall be providing a limited drinks service to our members, but please note that we are not yet allowed to reopen the clubhouse to members in the normal manner.

We can now provide an area in the bar that members can pre-book to enjoy a limited drinks and snacks menu. Indoor tables are available to book with the following guidelines in place:

  • You will need to call Reception during our operating hours in order to book a table.

  • Each table has a maximum of 4 seats; hence there is a limit of 4 members per table.

  • There may be no more than 2 households present at a table

  • Bookings are available for 45 minutes from on the hour to quarter to the hour.

  • No more than 2 consecutive bookings in a day.

  • Please follow social distancing of 2 metres where possible; a minimum of 1 metre is mandatory.

We shall also have a limited outdoor area open on the tennis patio. Members may book this area the same as the indoor area.  Please state whether you wish to book an indoor or an outdoor area when booking. The outdoor bar area will be serviced from the temporary reception area, with a slightly reduced menu from the indoor bar area.

Outdoor tables are available to book with the following guidelines in place:

  • You will need to call Reception during our operating hours in order to book a table.

  • Each table has a maximum of 4 seats: hence there is a limit of 4 members per table.

  • Please follow the one way system where applicable.

 

As part of these arrangements we shall need to record all purchases in order to aid the government’s track and trace programme, and to comply with government regulations. We shall not share any information with the government, but we are required to notify members in the event of a local outbreak of COVID-19 at the Hallamshire.

Outdoor tennis court bookings update – commencing 13th July

The LTA have announced updated guidelines, and the Hallamshire can therefore make the following amendments to outdoor court usage:

  • Outdoor court bookings can now be for 55 minutes instead of 50 minutes. (We still need to allow adequate time for previous bookings to leave before allowing new bookings to enter.)

  • All ages of juniors can now play matches together. We advise U8s are monitored by a parent/guardian.

  • Parents/guardians, where possible, can watch coaching sessions.

 

Clubhouse and indoor areas update

Following the government’s latest announcement we are still unable to open the majority of the club house and the following facilities:

  • Indoor tennis courts

  • Squash courts

  • Gym

  • Changing rooms

We are hoping for brighter news in the coming weeks and months, and the Hallamshire Team is looking forward to the membership as a whole being able to return.

 

Preparation for indoor area reopening

The following measures are being put in place, and they must be followed as we reopen the club’s indoor areas:

  • A one way system through the club

  • Social distancing measures

  • Cleaning stations where necessary

  • Floor markings to enable socially distanced training and exercise

  • Additional signage throughout the club advising members

  • Additional hand sanitiser stations throughout the club

  • Cleaning equipment for members to clean their equipment (rackets/weights etc)

  • Closure of seating areas

  • Closure of water fountains. Please bring a dinks container which is full with you, or purchase a drink on entering the club.

  • Limited toilet facilities

 

Moving towards reopening further facilities

All members will have additional months added to their membership corresponding with the number of months that they have not been able to use the club due to COVID-19. If your membership expired before the closure or part way through it, now is a good time to renew, as this will continue to apply until the facility you want to use reopens. As soon as we receive the news that areas currently closed can reopen, we shall work hard to reopen them as soon as we can. By renewing now it will mean you will be able to book courts as soon as they become live.  As we have done with tennis, we shall also be offering short term memberships for squash and racketball, so members from the same household can join. There will be no joining fee charged within the first month of squash/racketball reopening. Please note that England Squash is advising us at this point not too allow visitors into the facility during the first phase of squash/racketball reopening.

Membership prices are as follows:

3 Month Adult Squash £75.00 / 3 Month Student Squash £40.00 / 3 Month U18 Squash £25.00 /

/ 3 Month U14 Squash £8.00 / 3 Month U8 Squash £4.00

You can join now so that your membership is ready to activate when the squash/racketball section reopens.

 

Topping up accounts

Prior to reopening the indoor tennis courts and squash courts, we should appreciate it if members can top up their Hallamshire accounts so that when the courts go live you will have no trouble booking them. Minimum top up online and over the phone is £20.00.

 

Court Bookings

All court bookings will need to be made in advance and online. If you are unsure of your Member ID or password please email helen@hallamshire.net. Members will need to be aware of their court time and court number upon entering the club. The booking terminals inside the club will remain closed for the time being. If you are having one to one coaching, when confirming the coaching session please check with your coach to see if there is a preferred court or if they are already on a court and would prefer to continue on that court with you.

 

Equipment

The club will have tennis balls, squash balls, racketball balls and grips available to purchase on entering the club. If you wish to purchase any items prior to returning to the club, please contact helen@hallamshire.net

There is a restringing service available at the Hallamshire. If you wish to drop your racket off you can do so from 10 minutes to the hour through to on the hour during club opening times.

Capital Update

Throughout the lockdown the Hallamshire Management Team and Hallamshire Board have been working to ensure the longevity of the Hallamshire in these uncertain times.

Earlier this year we installed a new Barista Coffee Machine in the bar, we renovated squash court 5 and we opened a new ladies’ toilet facility by the bar.

The club has progressed with improvements through lockdown. The collapsed boundary wall has been rebuilt, the car park has been resurfaced and we are now close to completion of the long needed work to the men’s shower room floor.

We are continuing to try to ensure that the level of service and the quality of facilities improve at the Hallamshire, so that when the club is fully functional again we shall have happy members in all areas.

We will now be taking visitor bookings. These will only be allowed to be booked 48 hours in advance and will need to be paid for at the time of booking. Visitors will need to provide their information in advance for back tracing.  The court fee is £4.00 and it is a £4.00 fee per visitor for the booking. 

 

 If a member is playing with a visitor, the visitor will need to pay at the time of entry to the club. It is a £4.00 fee for adult and/or a child.

 

We are also open to new tennis members. There will be a no joining fee for June for new members. There is a 3 month, 6 month and 12 month membership option. Family Discount is available. 

 

We are looking forward to seeing you all soon.
