We have taken the decision to cancel all 4 Mini Tennis Camps set to take place during the Easter Holidays. Parents have been emailed this morning with notice as well as details for those who have prepaid for their spaces.
Alongside this we have also cancelled all planned events until Sunday 19th April, which includes our New 2020/21 Season Launch, our Quorn Family Tennis Cup under 10 event, Adult Aussie Open Team Challenge and a Volunteer Day.
Tennis Wales have also confirmed the cancellation of the Caerphilly Schools Year 3/4 and Year 5 tennis competitions, scheduled for the last 2 weeks of April, which we host at CTC.
The Caerphilly Tennis Club committee along with our Head Coach Jonathan Morgan have decided to suspend all tennis activity at the Club for the foreseeable future in response to the Coronavirus Pandemic. This includes Junior and Adult coaching lessons, Adult Social sessions, FamilyFunFridays and Family Skills&Fitness as well as all upcoming events. A decision on our Easter Holiday activities will be made on Sunday 22nd March. This follows fresh advice from the LTA, Government and other official bodies.
This is a decision that we have not taken lightly as we know many players, young and old, have enjoyed staying active, getting fresh air and socialising in the past week as the pandemic has escalated. But we feel it is now in the best interests of not only our coaches, volunteers and players but also their families and the wider community.
We will of course continue to monitor the situation and seek further guidance from all official bodies and keep all of our players/parents/guardians updated via email, text and social media. Updates will also be posted here.
During this time, we encourage you all to still pick up a racket, watch highlights online, read tennis books and stay in touch with us and fellow players. We will be posting challenges, discussions and more on our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) so please get involved and share them with family and friends.
We appreciate everyone’s understanding in these unprecedented times, and are grateful for your continued support.
It will be a tough few weeks/months for the Club as well as our self-employed coaches but we will be back as soon as possible.
Stay safe and see you all at CTC again soon.
