Coronavirus Covid-19 guidance
The country has moved to Step 4 of the Government roadmap from 19 July, meaning that most legal restrictions have been lifted. There are no longer any restrictions on how many people can take part in tennis activity, indoors or outdoors.
We ask that all members adhere to the latest advice issued daily by the Department of Health and Social Care and Public Health England, aimed at preventing the spread of respiratory viruses and, in particular, Covid-19.
We recommend, in particular, that members should:
- Avoid coming to the club if there is any risk that they have come into contact with Covid-19 and seek medical advice;
- Thoroughly and frequently wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds at a time;
Tennis is a naturally socially distant sport, but players should take the following steps to reduce the risk of transmission when attending and participating in tennis activity.
Check for COVID-19 symptoms. Before attending any tennis activity, players should self-assess for symptoms of COVID-19. These are:
- a high temperature
- a new, continuous cough
- a loss of, or change to, your sense of smell or taste
If you, or anyone you live with, have one or more of these symptoms you should not attend any sporting activity, even if your symptoms are mild. You should follow NHS guidance on testing and self-isolation. If you have been informed that you need to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace (or are required to self-isolate in relation to travel), you must do so. You should not leave your isolation location in order to participate in sport and physical activity. You can find more information in the NHS guidance on how to self-isolate.
