We are pleased to announce, having reviewed the Government and LTA Guidelines, we are ready to re-open the courts this Friday for members to play. Members must follow the guidelines, observe social distancing of 2m and be responsible for your own health and safety.
A maximum of two people per court (singles play only). Players can be from different households.
The only exception to the singles play is where a group of players are all from the same household in which case they can play doubles.
Coaching sessions are limited to one-to-one coaching.
The LTA guidelines contain all the relevant, up to date information which we are following so we recommended that you refer to them as well. You will find them under the following links:
LTA Covid-19 – Guidance for Tennis Players
LTA Covid-19 – Guidance for Tennis Venues We have also prepared our own Players Checklist below in this newsletter which members need to refer to.
We would expect our members to follow the social distancing 2 metre rule at all times and naturally to take any precautions you feel you need
We are taking this opportunity as outlined in the LTA guidelines to introduce a booking system.
The booking system is for members only who have renewed or have asked to have their membership paused. Please contact the membership secretary to renew your membership or wait until your next payment reminder in the next week or so which will be pro-rata at 11/12ths
Bookings can be made on your phone using the free ClubSpark Booker App (available for iPhone or Android) or online at https://clubspark.lta.org.uk/knutsfordtennisclub/Booking
The system will go live from 1200hrs on Thursday 14th May. Please see below for details on how to book a court.
If anyone has a problem using the online booking system, or is not especially tech savvy, then Mark has kindly offered to look at booking a court or please contact Christine Falder.
This is very new for us as well, so please let us know if you have any issues / suggestions through firstname.lastname@example.org
Currently, members are permitted to bring a guest 3 times at £5 a visit.
Whilst the Covid-19 restrictions are in place, we may review this policy, so please let us know if you want to make this more flexible.
Please be aware that the main club building remains closed so no access to toilet facilities or changing rooms.

HOW TO BOOK A COURT
You can make a booking in one of two ways
Use the ClubSpark Booker App on your phone (works with iOS 11 or Android 4.4 and above) or go online at https://clubspark.lta.org.uk/knutsfordtennisclub/Booking
ClubSpark Booker App
Download the app and sign in using the same account details that you use to sign into ClubSpark, then select “Make a Booking”.
Select Knutsford Tennis Club and our booking sheet will appear, showing available slots.
Choose the day, time and duration (30 mins, 60 mins or 90 mins) of your session and click “Book now” and your court will be automatically allocated.
If you have a preferred court, you can select it and look for available times.
The top right corner icon switches the view between a list and a grid.
You will receive an email confirmation of your booking.
You can book up to seven days in advance and up to three sessions a week.
The Bookings summary page shows you a list of all your upcoming bookings.
Please cancel any bookings you are no longer able to use to help keep the courts available for as many users as possible.
The App syncs with the Club Spark website bookings sheet so you can view and amend your bookings there as well.
Online Web Bookings
Follow the link on the KTC website or go directly to their booking system via the link above.
Sign in with your ClubSpark login and the booking sheet will appear. You can view the sheet by court or by date.
Click on your chosen time slot and a pop-up appears to allow you to select the duration of the session, then click Book Now to confirm the booking.
You’ll be sent an email confirmation - and as above, please remember to cancel any bookings you’re unable to use.
Parents/Guardians can book courts on the website using their child’s membership by first logging in with their own registered log in details, and then changing the view to the child’s membership with the drop down menu under their name, top right.
Any problems – please email email@example.com and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. The system is relatively simple and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that it all works fine, but it’s new for all of us so there could be a few teething troubles to sort out.
