COVID -19 UPDATE - 21-09-2021
With the alert level change announced, this means we can adjust our protocols at the club as follows.
As tennis is an outdoor activity, play is permitted but under very strict criteria.
IMPORTANT - Please note and follow these protocols.
a) Tennis can only be played in your household bubbles.
Play is NOT permitted with players outside your household bubble.
b) Players only please – no spectators.
c) BOOKINGS MUST BE MADE IN ADVANCE.
Please note times will be limited. The first available booking
time is Wed 22 Sept at 10am.
The last available booking time each day is 4pm – 5pm.
Please also note – we are taking the opportunity to have tennis
courts 1 to 4 and 8 to 10 groomed over the next few days. This
is weather dependent and potentially may
affect your court number and booking time. If this is the case
we will advise you in advance.
d) Access to the courts is through the swimming pool gate and you
Aileen 021 616986 or Phil 021 08734819 prior to arrival. You
will then be met at the gate.
e) At the point of entry, you must scan the contact tracing code
and also sign an acknowledgment that you are playing with
people in your household bubble
f) Hand Sanitiser will be provided at each court.
g) We can’t have rubbish bins available, so we ask that you please
take any rubbish with you when you leave.
h) All indoor facilities at RRC remain closed for members –
therefore unfortunately squash and gym access is not permitted
at Level 3.
i) Changing rooms and showers remain closed.
While it is great we can enjoy the opportunity to play, it is very important that we adhere to these protocols and respect the expert advice.

For squash players and gym members – we look forward to welcoming you back at Level 2.
We will keep everyone updated once the level changes are announced.
Clearly Covid has had an effect on everyone. From a club perspective, we have been locked down from 18 August 2021. This has not only affected daily use but has also meant we have had to put on hold projects that we had been working on. These include lounge upgrade, resurfacing tennis courts 5, 6 and 7 and swimming pool refurbishment.
It is unknown how this will play out but once we have a clearer path forward we will keep you updated with projects and timelines.
In the meantime, please enjoy the use of the facilities responsibly.
Stay safe and well.
