COVID-19 UPDATES

Update: Monday 18th May

Hello to all involved with Kalo Sport and their families. Again, we hope that you have managed to keep safe and well during the last couple of months and our thoughts are with anybody that has had family members directly impacted by the virus.

As you may be aware, the government gave the green light last week for tennis to resume in a restricted format. This format is one-on-one only or doubles so long as all four players are from the same household. As a result of this, the Kalo Sport junior tennis programme and our holiday camps are still unfortunately held at a red light for this moment. We are hoping to be able to look at camps for the summer holidays and will do all we can to facilitate this IF the government permits.

In the meantime, some of our coaches who also conduct private one-on-one sessions separate from us are available to be contacted for lessons if you wish:

Rhys Bass – 07894499620
Nicholas Joannou – 07494343668

We also have UEFA licensed football coach Tom Buzzard available for 45 minute football one-on-one sessions. He has asked to be emailed if interested on – tbuzz86@gmail.com

For those that have asked, Hazelwood Sports Club has opened back up, however, they are only allowing players with a current valid membership to book courts at this time for singles play. Any questions or queries regarding using Hazelwood as a facility are to be directed to the club not Kalo Sport. We are aware though that club manager Jack has been furloughed until the end of June so believe there is currently no way of joining at this time. We advise only members who have a court booked to visit the club until further notice.

We will be in touch as soon as we know more regarding recommencing the junior tennis programme and holiday camps at Hazelwood Sports Club. In the meantime stay safe and well!

Regards,

Kalo Sport

Update: Saturday 18th April

We hope you and your families are keeping well!

It has been a challenging and strange time for us all over the last few weeks and we hope that the children who attend our classes and their families are keeping safe and positive during these unprecedented times. On a positive note, we were delighted to add another member to the Kalo Sport family as co-founder Edward Harvey and his wife welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world on April 2nd!

As an organisation we are itching to get back to doing what we love. Sports coaches have a passion to help and work with people face-to-face so for us it has been quite an adjustment to our working lives, as we’re sure it has for you all. We very much hope that the doors will be opened at Hazelwood as soon as it is deemed safe to do so and we can get the kids back playing again.

In the meantime we attach some links that may be useful to help keep you and your children moving at home:
