Good News....our club is reopening

Following the latest government update and LTA guidance, we are delighted to inform you that the Club will be re-opening on Wednesday 2nd December.

Facilities

Both indoor and outdoor tennis courts, squash courts, gym, studio, treatment rooms and Just Rackets sports shop will be reopening. As you are probably aware, the government has confirmed that Hertfordshire will sit under tier 2 until further notice, which means there will be changes to how we were operating our facilities before the current lockdown. Full details will be given, as soon as clarified by the LTA and England Squash, on this website under the governance section.

A huge thank you

We are very much looking forward to the Club re-opening, we know you are too. We wish to thank all members for giving their full support in continuing to pay membership. In the meantime, stay safe and well and see you all next week

Exciting new club development

WE HAVE SOME EXCITING NEWS TO SHARE WITH YOU BEFORE WE OPEN.

We are very excited to let you know that The Orchard, will be joining us to provide our Club with a new restaurant and bar in January 2021. Both Harriet and Steven Mitchell bring a wealth of experience and passion in providing their customers with fresh food and drink, and have been successful in running two other sites prior to joining us. Following much member feedback prior to March this year, we believe this will be a fantastic addition to the Club and provide our members with an area of the Club they can relax and enjoy, and feel proud to bring friends and family to join them in their Club. Please read the message from Harriet and Steven on the website under Restaurant & Bar

Welcome To Letchworth Sports and Tennis Club (LSTC)
