Bushy Park Tennis & Padel Club Management


Dear Bushy Park Tennis & Padel Club members and friends,

After these tough weeks, we want to make the club available to you for everyone's use and enjoyment, but with certain restrictions and new rules that will be applied as of today to ensure all users the greatest security when using the facilities. We greatly appreciate all your effort and your generous understanding.

For phase 1 of our reopening, for both tennis and padel, management will allow doubles play for members of the same household. Otherwise, play is restricted to singles only with strict adherence to government and Club guidelines.

The sports disciplines of PADEL and TENNIS do not provide physical contact, for this reason it is better than other disciplines for a gradual resumption of activity, providing limitations and precautions that eliminate the danger of transmission of the virus.

The Club is open to silver and gold membership. Please see website for further information on the membership types available. All players must be registered on the Bushy Park Tennis & Padel Club system before playing.


Therefore, we would please ask you to abide by the following regulations:

  1. The client must arrive between 10 - 15 min. before their booking / reservation.
  2. Costumers will have access to the side door of the facility by the green tennis courts, always respecting the distance marks and indicative signs. Please be patient. It is for the common good.
  3. The changing rooms will not be available until further notice.
  4. The toilets will not be available to the general public, being limited to staff only and respecting hygiene procedures.
  5. Payment must be made by exact amount or by credit card.
  6. Common areas should not be occupied without prior consent.
  7. After payment or registration, the client must go directly to the gaming area, avoiding being in contact with other users. Social distance of 2m.
  8. The rental of racquets will not be available at the club for the time being, although the club is committed to giving new users the possibility to buy a new racket with discounts of between 25% and 40% depending on the tennis or padel model.
  9. Shop costumers must remain outside and wait their turn to be served and dispatched respecting the signs duly marked. (The only available items are: drinks, snacks and tea / coffee).
  1. Hand sanitisers will be available in the club. However, we would advise customers to bring their own.



-We recommend to bring a small towel with you and also wear a wristband during the game.

-Players must bring or purchase their own balls marked with colours, initials or names.

-Avoid unnecessary contact with tennis or padel courts structures.

-Please find link to video on specifications on how to proceed during the game:

Dear Club members and friends,


We hope you are all keeping safe in these crazy times.


There are always things we can do to keep working and using the time to improve everything in relation to the physical part of the game which applies equally to tennis or padel.


After a lot of work put in by our team, we came up with this plan to do 6 times per week.


I wish to show my gratitude to Rick, Danilo and those at home that put together this fantastic plan which I hope you will all enjoy.


Please visit my YouTube Channel here to see the videos:

Bushy Park Tennis & Padel Club will remain closed from 5 pm this evening due to storm Ciara. We will update you on opening times tomorrow (Sunday), but the orange warning in place will mean the facility may not open until Sunday afternoon.

Met Eireann has issued an orange weather alert for the entire country. The warning will be in place from 5 am until 12 noon tomorrow (Sunday 9th February).



Issued 15:00, Friday, 7th February, by Evelyn Cusack, Head of Forecast Division and Eoin Sherlock, Head of Flood Forecast Division.

Storm Ciara is expected to pass to the north of Ireland on Sunday but the country can expect some wet and windy weather before this on Saturday. This spell of weather will bring heavy rain and strong winds, which have the potential to cause some disruption, especially in western and northern counties. The animation below displays the forecast winds for Saturday, 8th February using the Harmonie Forecast model.

As well as the heavy rain and strong winds, there is the risk of coastal and localised flooding. As we get closer to a weather event Met Éireann’s high resolution model Harmonie allows us to enhance the level of detail in our forecasts. Met Éireann has this afternoon increased the wind warning levels for Saturday to Orange for Galway, Mayo and Donegal.
