Further to the updated Government COVID-19 guidance issued on 15th October members need to be aware of the key changes which take effect from Saturday 17th October.

For outdoor play organised by members playing singles or doubles, this will have no effect. However for groups of 8, this will mean making 2 court bookings in 2 names. The 4 players on each court cannot swap between courts, they can however swap around within their 4.

Indoor play for ADULTS is not permitted. Apart from 1-1 coaching and those from the same household . All block bookings are suspended from 17th October until Chesterfield moves back to Tier 1.

Under this new legislation, the Government has defined racket sports (including tennis) as being activity that involves mixing because they require at least two people for it to happen, despite them being on opposite sides of a net. This means that in Tier 2 and Tier 3 areas tennis for adults indoors is limited to play between people in the same household/bubble or one to one coaching (with an exemption for tennis activity for disabled people, and for under 18s).

The Junior and disability Coaching Programme continue indoors and adult groups continue outdoors only.

CLTC is one of the longest established clubs in the Midlands.

In 2005 the Club underwent a major  redevelopment with the building of the indoor hall with 3 courts and creating 3 artificial grass and 4 tarmac courts outdoors.  There are 5 floodlit outdoor courts.

These new facilities have made the Club one of the best venues in Derbyshire, providing a  Coaching Programme for both junior and adults , courts for members, non-members and schools.

The Club hosts numerous tennis tournaments, bringing players from all over the country.

In 2012 the interior of the Clubhouse was upgraded and a new bar, office and meeting room added.
