Kingussie Tennis Club is now open for members to play at the courts on the town's Ardbroilach Road.

Play has resumed at courts across the country after coronavirus restrictions were lifted by the Scottish Goverment. Picture: Daniel Forsyth.

It follows the relaxation of lockdown on Friday which has allowed the return of non-contact sports including tennis, golf, angling and bowls.

Club secretary Moira Webster said: "It has taken a little longer to lay courts as the court preparation has had to be done in ‘household groups’ rather than the usual crowd of members getting together to get everything ready.

"We now have two courts available for Phase 1 activity but, in line with Tennis Scotland and LTA guidelines, there are restrictions in place.

"Posters around the pavilion and courts give guidance and members are sent other information."

Mrs Webster continued: "The trustees decided to offer a reduced membership by almost half-price to all members this season as play will be different and for the first time, an online booking system will be used.

"This is going live shortly. Also for the first time, the courts will be locked and members will get the code for the padlock when a court is booked."

Junior membership is still only £5 per child under the age of 18.

Anyone interested in becoming a member at Kingussie should contact Mrs Webster on 01540 661484 or visit the club's Facebook page.
