Coronavirus (Covid-19) Latest update - England - Return to Play (Updated 21 July)

The Government has confirmed that adult group coaching is now possible in larger groups for those coaches and venues that are COVID-19 secure, in line with published Government guidance on organising outdoor sport and physical activity events, and for providers of grassroots sport and gym/leisure facilities.  

Groups of up to 15 children plus coach(es) are also possible for junior coaching, in line with guidance from Government on out of school settings. Guidance from Government also means that clubs and venues can host larger groups for outdoor sport and physical activity participation events such as club nights and competitions, as long as they ensure they are COVID-19 secure.

These guidelines apply to tennis on outdoor and (from 25th July) indoor courts, as well as padel, and outline adaptations and considerations so that tennis and associated activity can be enjoyed in a way that is in line with Government advice and helps to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
