This page provides up to date information as to how the coronavirus (Covid-19) and the latest government advice around it, relates to tennis activities in Britain and all those involved in delivering them.
Playing Tennis During Lockdown
We know how important it is for people to be active, and the particular role tennis can have in the physical and mental wellbeing of those that play it. By its very nature, tennis is an activity whereby close person to person contact can be avoided, with the UK Government saying tennis is a good example of an activity that can be undertaken in a way compliant with social distancing restrictions.
Wales - Return to Restricted Play
UPDATE (19 June): Following our continued dialogue, the Welsh Government have announced that tennis courts will be able to re-open and the sport will be able to resume, subject to certain restrictions, from Monday 22 June.
Tennis Wales and the LTA have published detailed guidance for venues, coaches and players, so that tennis in Wales is able to safely resume. The guidelines are accessible via the link below to the LTA’s dedicated coronavirus advice page, as well as via the Tennis Wales website. We encourage you to read these guidelines carefully, especially the guidance for tennis players on the last two pages.
This is positive news for tennis in Wales, both Tennis Wales and the LTA look forward to continuing to work with all involved in the sport to open it up to more people following safe resumption of tennis activity.
