Wimbledon Ballot Postponed

Following the announcement by the AELTC that they will be making a decision next week on whether this year’s Wimbledon Championships will be going ahead we have decided to postpone the club’s ballot until we know more. If the championships do go ahead and you are successful in our ballot, there will still be plenty of time to purchase the tickets from the LTA online system which remains open until 15th May.

Club Closure

Following the latest government announcement on Covid-19 restrictions the Club will now be closed and the gate and all courts will be padlocked.

The replacement of courts 1, 2 and 3 is finished so we now have six amazing tennis courts ready for action; three weeks hopefully without rain will enable the croquet lawns to dry. Please stay well and let’s all look forward to a long hot summer of sport when restrictions are lifted and we can reopen!

AGM Cancellation

The club regret to announce that the 2020 AGM, due to be held in the club house on Thursday 26 March 2020, will be cancelled in line with government advice on social distancing and group meetings. Further information about the AGM can be found here.

Update on Replacement of Courts 1-3

The recent bad weather has delayed the work slightly. The contractors will be on site from Monday 9th March and will complete the preparation of the top surface before tarmacking hopefully on Wednesday 11th. The carpet fitters will begin once the top surface is ready and this will probably take us into the beginning of the following week.

We would like to thank you for your patience and flexibility on playing times when using the remaining three courts – see here for an update on anticipated court usage for this week. We will keep you updated with the progress being made at the end of next week.

 

 

2020 AGM – Thursday 26 March

The 2020 AGM of Ryde Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club will be held in the RLTCC Clubhouse, Playstreet Lane on Thursday March 26th at 6.30pm. Documents for the AGM will be made available here.

Replacement of Courts 1-3

Chiltern Sports will start work resurfacing courts 1, 2 and 3 on Monday 17th February. Only courts 4, 5 and 6 will be available for play for possibly three weeks. Attached is a summary of court usage for matches and club-sponsored events. Look also at the Winter Tennis Schedule on the notice board or website.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and interruption to your play during the next three weeks. If turning up for private play please remember the club rule that applies at all times and vacate your court after completing a set or after 30 minutes if others are waiting.

Weather permitting, the contractors will be arriving at 8.00am on Monday 17th. Parking will be restricted to the few bays near the clubhouse enabling the contractor’s access to the tennis courts. Please be prepared to use parking spaces on Playstreet Lane and roads close to the club when visiting the club.

Thank you for your patience and we look forward to the completion of the resurfacing of courts 1, 2 and 3, ready for the summer season.
