LTA Recreational Play Update
Sun, 01 Nov 2020 00:00
Following the governments announcement yesterday we don’t yet know how this will effect tennis clubs and tennis coaching.
We must await confirmation of details from the LTA, who themselves are awaiting info from the government.
The LTA website currently has this holding message:
_UPDATE: The Prime Minister has announced new national restrictions for England to be implemented from Thursday 5 November - Wednesday 2 December. The measures will have implications for recreational tennis activity - we will update our coronavirus guidance on this page once we have received confirmed details from Government.
The new restrictions mean that indoor tennis activity will need to cease during this period. Given tennis is a socially distanced sport with the net acting as a natural barrier, we are making the case to Government for outdoor tennis activity for two individuals from different households to continue, in line with Government restrictions on exercise that have been announced, and are awaiting clarification.
Group & individual coaching will continue as normal this week (Monday-Wednesday).
We will inform everyone via our website, Facebook and email once we’ve had clarification from the LTA about coaching and recreational play from Thursday onwards.
