Little Waltham Tennis Court and play areas

This page is to keep you updated regarding the re-opening of play facilities managed by the Parish Council.


The Tennis Court

Although this area is now in Tier 3 restrictions the rules state that courts may remain open.  The tennis court is therefore open for the purposes of tennis only and those using it should observe social distancing and make sure they use hand sanitiser as the equipment is not cleaned.

Children's play areas are also permitted to remain open but please note the rules set out below still apply.

At the meeting on 7th July 2020 Little Waltham Parish Council undertook a detailed play area Risk Assessment  and will be re-opening the children's play area on the afternoon of 24th July 2020.  However users are required to abide by the rules set out below for their own safety -

  • Maintain a social distance of at least 2 meters (6 feet) between yourself and others
