Q. Can I book courts outside of term?

After the second lockdown ends, when the Iffley Sports Centre is allowed to reopen, you will be able to book courts to use. The guidelines on what type of play can be done, will be published in due time.

If you are wanting to play tennis in Oxford over the summer there is a good court booking system for the local area here, which is very easy to use. 

Q. Will university tennis be resuming as normal in Michaelmas Term?

Our facilities will be open in week 1, and we have a full programme ready for all our members! Though we cannot have matches against a team outside of Oxford City, as per the restrictions set by the University's Silver Group, we have scheduled a lot of internal training and matchplay for all members.

Of course, this is subject to changing government guidance, particularly regarding local and national restrictions.

Q. Will BUCS matches be happening in MT?

BUCS matches are scheduled to start in January, though it expected to be of a different format than previous years. We are waiting for an update by the University's Silver Group on whether this will go ahead.

Q. What steps are the club making to make sessions covid-secure?

So many things! The main difference this year is that sessions will be by registration only, as we have to maintain capacity limit as well as allow for track and trace. Social members who are planning to come to sessions can book here. Team players can contact their captains.

 

Based on the LTA guidance, as well as the University Sports Federation guidance for sports clubs, we have prepared a Return to Play document, which you can find here.
