Cork Parks Tennis Summer Camp Programme Adjustments due to COVID-19:

During this unprecedented time, Cork Parks Tennis are delighted to be able to offer our summer camps once again. The safety of our participants, their parents/guardians and staff are vital to us so we have taken important measures to meet all guidelines put in place by the HSE, government and Sport Ireland.

We are determined to provide a fun, active and enjoyable camp in a safe environment. We have made every effort to reduce the risk of the possible spread of COVID-19 at our camps, however, the virus is still in Ireland, and by attending you accept that Cork Parks Tennis cannot guarantee that your child will not contract the virus.

We have put in place numerous adjustments to our summer camp programme to ensure the safety of all of those involved (see below):
