Notice Board Updates – November 2020

LB&SC Tier 2 Opening

We can confirm that the Club will be re-opening to members on Thursday 3rd December for play.

Details of what form of play and how you can book a court is set out below. With regards all court bookings, we will be following the same procedure we operated under at weekends pre lockdown i.e. you can book a court as long as we can find a volunteer to open the club at that time, although we will strive to accommodate bookings as if the Club was operating traditional hours.

The situation will be kept under review and furloughed staff may be asked to return if demand is higher than anticipated.

Guidelines as to what activity is permitted for indoor sports have been taken from Badminton England and England Squash and are as follows:
