  1. The Bar at the Centre will close promptly at 10pm. At the moment the Centre will remain open until 11pm but it is likely that a closure time of 10pm will be imposed in the near future. We are awaiting direction on this. A statement from the league has covered this point should it happen.

  2. All League matches that have fixtures at BTTC have been allotted courts in advance

  3. On arrival at the Centre please give the names of your team members to the Bar Steward for logging onto the table allocation sheets. This will facilitate any track and trace requirements should the Centre be required to supply such information.

  4. The lounge has been reorganised to ensure social distancing.

  5. Each court represents a ‘bubble’ of six. However the size of the courts will only allow 4 people to be physically present on the court itself. The remaining players must stay in the lounge area and use the numbered table allocated to the court. Due to overall restriction on numbers no spectators will be allowed,

  6. Players in the lounge should not ‘mingle’ with players from other ‘bubbles’ as advised by TTE.

  7. The ‘home’ team shall be responsible for paying the table fee

  8. Team Captains will be responsible for notifying BTTC of any cancelled/postponed games. Teams not doing this before the scheduled match day will be charged for the table.

  9. It is recommended that face masks are worn by non players but it is up to the individual to decide.

  10. As has always been the case all players using the Centre must be members of the Club and should pay their subscriptions in advance of them playing their first game. This can be done over the phone as there is now a credit card machine available. See the BTTC website for details of when to call.
