Club reopening with caution

Great news – MTC courts are accessible from Sunday 17th May 8am.

To enable this, we need to follow Tennis NZ Guidelines – please respect these and appreciate they’re in place to look after yourself, loved ones and the community. 

Accessing the courts:

  • To book a court – email captain@mtc.co.nz.  Please give 24 hours notice.  Jason will confirm court availability and confirm your booking.
  • Contact tracing – you need to complete this form before play
  • We will have up to two courts operating at a time (8 players total)
  • Club rooms are not open 
  • Members only access to courts during this period.

Casual play:

  • We expect Twilight to resume for Winter league
  • In the meantime, if you want to organise your own hit, contact twilight@mtc.co.nz with your contact details and preferred playing times.  Geoffrey will circulate a list to those who are interested to self-organise.

Etiquette

  • Play and Go – much as you might want to, please don’t hang about after play
  • Social distancing – 2m.  When you change ends, walk alternate ends of the net
  • Bring and use your own gear, racket, balls, hand sanitiser
  • Exercise  caution with common touch points (gate, net etc)
  • Racket bumps are still a good thing

Club Champs (entries close 29 May)

  • We’re excited to be planning Senior Club Champs for June / July
  • Each round you will have approx. 2 weeks to play your matches
  • You’ll need to contact your opponents to arrange match times
  • Events: Singles, Doubles, Mixed doubles (separate singles and doubles draws for Men and Women)
