He said: “I know how much all of you will miss your tennis, racquetball, squash, table tennis, pilates, fitness classes and so many other activities taking place at the club every week.

“It is though our civic duty to abide by this clear government advice for the sake of our fellow citizens for what hopefully may be a limited period.

“The committee owes a responsibility to the safety and well-being of all our members, many of whom are in the upper age bracket and with conditions that make them vulnerable to coronavirus.”

Mr van Hasselt said the closure was now in force from today (March 17) until further notice.
