Rules of Play During COVID-19 Restrictions

Message from Wendy Sullivan:
The order of play for Sunday is as follows:- 
Two people to a court playing “Busselton Singles”. 
Busselton Singles is playing cross-court using half the  court from the middle to sidelines including tram lines, as if you were playing doubles.
Each player has two serves,  when everyone has completed 4 games players rotate one court clockwise. No change of ends on serve.
While waiting for all games to be completed, players must remain on court and maintain social distancing.
Your session will last for 1hr +25minutes and there will be 8 or 9 players per session. If 9 players, one person sits out each rotation on reaching court 4 and re-enters onto court 4 at the next rotation. Danni, Melinda and  Ray will facilitate. The order of play is as follows:-
The first group please be at the Centre by 9am ready for play at 9:05.
Court 1. Julia and Ajay; Court 2. Ray and Alan; Court 3. Danny and Anthony; Court 4. Dave and Danni; Melinda to sit off.  Please finish play by 10:25 and leave promptly after using hand sanitiser.

Ning is commencing Ramadan but may make a guest appearance, we wish her well.
Could EVERYONE please email within 24/24 with feedback . 🎾🤔🤚😃🎾eg. Are you happy with the format, will you be playing on a regular Sunday? Any other suggestions welcome. As tennis is one of the few sports we can play at present, the courts are proving very popular and need to be booked a week ahead at least.  
Good luck everyone for a fun day .
We are hoping it won’t be all that long before we can get back to doubles. This is our first step.      Wendy   😃👋🎾
