COVID-19 LOCAL RESTRICTIONS IN ENGLAND
TENNIS ACTIVITY BY TIER
RESTRICTIONS APPLICABLE FROM 00:01 ON WEDNESDAY 2 DECEMBER 2020
KEY POINTS
■   This grid outlines a summary of the Government restrictions for each tier of restrictions
across England and what that means for tennis activity, effective from 00:01 on Wednesday 2
December 2020

■   Details of which tier each area of the country have been published by the Government and are
available here

■   Where activity is listed as permitted, this may still be subject to additional restrictions and
protocols - venues, coaches, players and officials should therefore refer to the LTA's full
COVID-19 secure detailed guidance once it is published

■   The same Tier 2 and Tier 3 rules also apply to people from these areas even if they travel to
an area in a lower tier

■   The Government have confirmed that there is an exemption for indoor group tennis activity for
disabled people and for under 18s (and also for organised activity for education) and it is safe
and appropriate for activity for these groups to continue indoors in both Tier 2 and Tier 3 areas
as long as it is done in line with the LTA's COVID-19 Secure guidelines for players, venues,
coaches and officials

■   These exemptions also apply to travel guidelines for Tier 3, so these groups (plus
parents/guardians and any necessary workforce) can travel into and out of Tier 3 areas for tennis
activity where this is necessary to facilitate participation

■   [UPDATED] Details have been added to the grid covering indoor doubles for two households
playing against each other in Tier 2 (no mixing between households), adult singles competition
indoors in Tier 2, one to one coaching indoors in Tier 3, travel restriction exemptions and
floodlight access. There remain some aspects we are awaiting clarification from Government on, as
detailed in the grid – this document will be updated as soon as confirmation on these aspects is
received

■   [UPDATED] This grid should be viewed in conjunction with the main LTA Coronavirus guidance
documents for tennis players, venues, coaches and officials which will be updated and published on
the LTA website once the Government has published full details of the restrictions which we are
still waiting for. Please refer to the main LTA coronavirus information page for all the latest
coronavirus updates at www.lta.org.uk/coronavirus
