OTK offers activity camps for children in June, July and August between 09:00 and 17:00 every day. In addition, we offer adult camps Monday – Thursday 17:00-18:30 or 18:30-20:00 the same weeks. More information and registration form can be found under “Camps – sign up”.
We have now opened up registration for the autumn courses. Remember that if you have attended courses before or are a member then you should log in to Matchi and sign up there, do not create a new profile.
The Norwegian Tennis Federation posted new and updated regulations for tennis play yesterday. Building on those rules, and with very strict guidelines OTK has decided on the following:
The rules concerning play for members of the same household will continue
Members who have no other tennis players in their household is allowed to play with another member in the same situation under the following terms:
Both members must send a mail to email@example.com before a court is booked and confirm that they are not ill, and that no member of their family is in quarantine or is ill
Both members must be born 2002 or earlier
Until the rules are changed they can only book courts and play with the selected opponent
The balls shall be marked with letters, crosses or similar in different colours so that each player only picks up his or her balls, alternatively that each player have their own brand of balls (it is recommended to play with a glove on the hand you pick up the ball with)
The plastic dome is open for booking – only courts 3 and 7. Separate rules for the dome below
No show will result in 1-month loss of booking rights
You must either cancel your booking in Matchi 1 hour before, or SMS Reidar on 916 33 299 if something urgent has happened. If you just don’t show up it is considered a no-show
Send an SMS to 916 33 299 or a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re uncertain about the rules.
We wish all our members a happy Ester and remind you to follow the coronavirus rules so that we can get back to business as usual as soon as possible.

Information to our members and course participants:
Earlier we have informed all members and course participants that the club is closed until further notice. The closure is based on Corona infection measures decisions made by Norwegian authorities. The Norwegian Sport Federation has also issued clear rules that all sport activities shall be stopped until further notice. We do not know how long this situation will last, but as all others we’re hoping to resume activities as soon as possible.
We’re planning to distribute a weekly information letter about what’s happening at the club but will of course inform you immediately should it be possible to resume activities.
The club house is closed but janitor Jozef is at work, and he’s now cleaning all wardrobes, toilets and showers
The plastic dome is also closed, the lights are shut off and the thermostat is set to 5 degrees all day and night. Jozef has vacuumed all courts, and is now cleaning the courts and all surfaces that people can touch
The outdoor courts are closed, but Jozef is working on preparing these for play as soon as that is allowed. He’s removing moss and leaves and is preparing to put on more sand. The plastic lines on 11 and 12 are removed, and will be replaced with painted lines
OTK is in dialogue with NIF, NTF and local health authorities to hear if outdoor play with restrictions can be accepted
Reidar is in the office every day, and is accessible via phone and mail
The coaches are working mostly from home but is dropping by OTK regularly to do odd tasks. The coaches are also preparing the summer camps, plus other activities that are not prioritized in a normally hectic workweek
Even though the courses are temporarily stopped you can still practice at home. The coaches will regularly post practices on our webpage, Facebook and Instagram that you can do at home
We are sorry that we must take such drastic measures, and we hope to welcome all back to practice as soon as possible.
