3 Months of tennis lost with Covid
Not the most festive of stats I know but thought it needed mentioning how well the Club Committee have wrestled through with all the disruption that Covid has brought us, and how they've had to manage the delicate balance of acting in a timely manner versus taking the time to properly discuss and come up with protocols/guidelines to keep us all as safe as possible.
