Tier 4: Singles Only

With Brighton & Hove going into Tier 4 restrictions on Boxing Day (26 Dec 2020), there are new rules for outdoor tennis at St Ann’s Well Gardens, in accordance with LTA guidelines (see below).

The top line is this: singles only. Doubles is only allowed with members of your own household/bubble.

Sunday afternoon club sessions, and all adult coaching groups are suspended until further notice.

Coaching: one-to-one coaching is allowed. For individual lessons, you can book directly with our authorised St Ann’s Tennis coaches:

David Ince
Scott Tawse
Jimmy Smith
Petra Sedova

Petra is a new addition to our coaching team, and will be available for one-to-one lessons on Sundays. See more here.

Juniors: As we understand it, juniors coaching programmes (under 18s) may continue according to LTA guidelines. David Ince and Conrad Brunner are seeking clarification on this point.

It is not clear if the public toilets at St Ann’s Well Gardens will remain open under Tier 4.

We trust all St Ann’s Tennis members and visitors to follow the rules, and to observe all guideline on social distancing. You know the drill: hands, face, space. It’s a highly infection disease.

In the meantime, be careful out there. Enjoy your (socially distanced) singles tennis, and have a very Happy Christmas.
