ARGIDEEN VALE PROCEDURES DURING PHASE 3
- Pre-booking of courts is still obligatory for the purpose of contact tracing. This may be done by email or Whats App text to Bernie Amberson firstname.lastname@example.org / 087-6437374). Names of those playing with you must be provided prior to your time slot. Cancellations to be treated in the same way. Please do not arrive at the Club without having booked your game, as you cannot be accommodated. N.B. Telephone bookings will not be taken.
- To facilitate the above, over the next few days a Tennis What’s App Group will be set up. This will be especially helpful in enabling single members find partners for games but of course may be used for doubles and families. Members will be invited to join and their contact numbers will be available on What’s App to all the group. Using What’s App they can interact with other players in arranging games . If you do not wish to join the group, you may of course continue to book courts by email or What’s App text. Although for a much smaller number, the Croquet What’s App already in place is working quite well.
- On each day of play (Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday) a Committee Member will be on duty to ensure adherence to the Government, HSE and Tennis Ireland guidelines and to assist where necessary with the use of the courts. This is for the safety of members and their directions must be complied with. Any member available to help with this task should contact Deirdre O’Sullivan on 087-2461219 to get their names and availability on the roster.
- Social Distancing is even more important now that restrictions are easing. We would ask that, to protect each and every member of our Club, you strictly observe the 2metre distance requirement.
- Our Clubhouse and its facilities are unavailable until further notice and benches will still not be used, so please bring along your own picnic chairs if you wish to sit down.
- No visitors will be permitted. Although Tennis Ireland guidelines permit visitors for Phase 3, our Committee has decided to continue with a no visitors policy throughout Phase 3, in the interests of the safety of all members, many of whom are over 70.
- All the above is subject to review over the coming weeks.
