Adjusted rules Amstelpark Tennis and Padel
Everything on this page applies to everyone who visits Amstelpark including tennis players, padel players and parents.
The government has decided that we are allowed to start playing tennis and padel again on our outdoor courts from May 11th 2020. We are very happy that this is the case. To do this in a safe and responsible manner, we al need to abide by a set of very important rules. This is crucial in order to create a sustainable situation for everyone.
We have created a plan of action based on the measures and guidelines set forth by the government and the protocols from the Dutch Tennis Federaton (KNLTB). The health and safety of our students, members, guests and teachers remain our number one priority. It is imperative that you read the information below attentively if you/your child is coming to Amstelpark for summer tennis/padel lessons or a court reservation (tennis and padel).
We expect everyone who plans to visit our park to be fully aware of all the information on this web page. It is also an expectation that everyone will abide by the rules and regulations unconditionally.
The Amstelpark Tennis and Padel Team
All teachers and staff of Amstelpark Tennis and Padel will be extensively instructed on how to act in this new situation. They will all abide by the same rules and regulations that are in place for everyone. They will take the lead in order to make sure everything is in compliance with the rules. We therefore expect everyone to follow their instructions unconditionally. We will try our absolute best to communicate as completely and clearly as possible to create a situation where everyone knows what to expect and what is expected of them.
General basic rules
By now, everyone will probably be very familiar with the rules an measures below as they apply to our daily lives, whether we are at home, at work, in a public space or at the tennis/padel club.
Specific rules for tennis/padel players and their parents
Below you'l find some important rules that apply specifically to you and your parents as you come to Amstelpark to play tennis/padel.
The situation at the tennis park
The circumstances under which the tennis/padel lessons/reservations will take place in this new situation will be distinctly different from what you might be used to. You can of course expect our usual high quality of teaching. Below you'll find some points that will be different compared to the 'normal' situation:
What happens when it rains?
Normally, recreational lessons always take place on our indoor courts, also during the summer season. This is also the case for the younger players in our selection program. The older slection players normally play outdoors and have the ability to move indoors in case of bad weather. Currently, we do not yet have the luxury of using the indoor courts, simply because it isn't allowed. All lessons will take place on the outdoor courts. This means we will have to work according to a rain policy for lessons that have to be cancelled. In case of lessons that need to be cancelled as a direct result of bad weather / rain, the following rules apply*:
*This only applies to lessons that are canceled due to bad weather / rain. Lessons that are missed by students for reasons not caused by Amstelpark Tennis will not be made up at a later time. This is the responsibility of the student.
Members and regular court rental reservations:
In case of bad weather/rain the outdoorcourts may be closed. If you are a member, your reservation will be cancelled and you can try to plan one for another time. Paying guests who have rented a court through our online reservation system will receive a credit for court rental to be used for a reservation at a later time. You will not be personally contacted about canceled reservations. Instead we have a page on our website where you can check the status of the courts for that day.
We are incredibly happy to be allowed to make these first steps towards 'normal' again. We would like to thank everyone beforehand for their cooperation in abiding by the rules and guidelines on this page. It is very important that we get a chance to play sports again. Our teachers can't wait to get on the court again. If you have any question please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
