The AGM has been posponed but tennis can contiue. We all know tennis is a unique sport which has many benefits – the main one being health and wellbeing. While the LTA has suspended its organised activity, the Government have currently indicated that physical exercise (including grass roots coaching) that takes place at a safe distance from others (at least 2 metres) and in safe exercise environments is something that can continue at this time (if you are fit and healthy - do not mix with others if you are at risk)
The Department of Culture, Media and Sport has specifically advised us that tennis is in fact one of the best examples of social distancing in practice, and so should be encouraged as long as the guidance permits. Tennis is also specifically identified as currently being a sport that is ok to play in this BBC news article.
Stay safe and take sensible precautions.
