Club championships commence on 23 October. Saturday social should start at the 80% vaccination mark.

The Clubhouse will remain closed midweek. The bar will remain closed midweek but will be opened on Saturday by committee members, keeping social distancing rules. All players must be double vaccinated and have proof on them.

The following important changes for tennis activities have come into effect yesterday:
* Every person aged 16 years or older must be fully vaccinated to participate in tennis activities in groups of 3 to 20 people;
* Sport and exercise in groups is limited to a maximum of 20 people, regardless of age;
* Masks are no longer required in outdoor areas.

Whilst it is the responsibility of the individual to provide evidence of their vaccination status, MLTC will take all reasonable steps to check and verify the vaccination status of our members who wish to participate in doubles play, group coaching, or local competition.

Best wishes,
MLTC Secretary
