Re-opening of Tennis Courts, Mon 29th March

You will be pleased to hear that the tennis courts will be re-opening on Monday 29th March.

We all know the drill by now but the rules that applied after the last lockdown must be rigorously applied again please, for all our safety.

Please do continue to sanitise your hands regularly at the Club. Our latest Guidelines on Return To Play are set out below, and please note especially:

  • The Rule Of Six applies outdoors. This should be observed by everyone, including parents spectating.
  • The Clubhouse is open for the use of the toilet only.

It is mandatory for all members and guests to wear a mask or face covering inside the Clubhouse. Please bring one with you when visiting the Club. This does not apply if you have a medical exemption which prevents you wearing a mask.

Please refer to our COVID-19 information page for details of the EVTC Return to Play Guidelines.

Car parking

Car parking at the Club is becoming increasingly busy, especially on Saturday mornings when there can be up to three football teams playing on Burford Lodge Recreation Ground. Please allow extra time for parking and drop offs, and try to park in side roads or walk to the Club whenever possible. The football club are looking at staggered kick-off times and alternative parking solutions but unfortunately these are not going to come into effect immediately.

The Dan Burden Trophy 2019

The sixth Dan Burden Trophy will be taking place from 13th to 20th July at Elstead Tennis Club. The tournament is run to remember Dan, a young coach at Elstead Village Tennis Club who died in a car crash on 11th October 2013 aged 21. He was a fun loving, mischievous young man with a great sense of humour. We hope that the tournament will be played with his spirit for his memory.

The Dan Burden Trophy is a LTA grade 3 tournament, which is regional level. Elstead is probably one of the smallest clubs in the country to run a grade 3 event. Players from all over the country have taken part over the past 5 years, and the tournament has expanded year on year. Some of the events are now played at Byfleet but there is still a large number of events at Elstead to enjoy.

From Saturday 13th to Monday 15th, the 14U and 18U boys and girls will be battling it out, with the mini tennis at the end of the week – 9U on Thursday 18th, 10U on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th, and 8U on Saturday 20th.

We are hoping that this year’s tournament will be another success and would love to see you there. Why not pop in for a coffee and watch some amazing tennis on your doorstep.
