Keeping Safe and Healthy – Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Guidance
At Inside Out Tennis the safety and wellbeing of all our coaches and players is of paramount importance. We would like to assure you that Inside Out Tennis are following Government and Public Health England guidance regarding COVID-19to take all necessary measures to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our players.
As a non-contact sport in an open environment, we will be continuing to operate following the guidance of the LTA, Government and Public Health England. In the meantime we have taken actions to help reduce the spread of infection. Group sessions are limited to 5 players per hour, booked and paid for in advance (Including Monday Club Night).
What action we have taken and implications
- In order to help reduce the spread of infection, we’re reminding all players, coaches and visitors to the Club of the importance of good hygiene. Please observe the Kegworth Club’s hygiene precautions displayed on site and follow the guidance available on the NHS website
- IOT coaches and players are being instructed there will be no handshakes, high fives, hugs and to maintain personal social distance 2-3 metres at all times. There will be no kinaesthetic learning by coaches (e.g. guiding swing paths etc.) We are asking all players to take the same precautions.
- Loan rackets will be disinfected at the end of sessions by the coach.
- It is up to individual clubs to decide how best to implement government guidelines but we would consider it sensible to limit use of the Club House to maintain toilet access and handwashing only.
- IOT employed coaches have been provided with Government and NHS guidance on what action they need to take to reduce the risk of spread of infection, following latest Guidance available on the Public Health England website.
