UPDATE: Resumption of outdoor tennis activity from 29 March
Government Roadmap for easing of lockdown restrictions
The Government has today (22 February) published its roadmap for the gradual and staged easing of lockdown restrictions in England, made possible by the pace of the vaccination programme. Restrictions will be eased across all areas of England at the same time.
The announcement confirmed that:
- Outdoor tennis courts will be able to open from 29 March. This will mean recreational tennis will be able to resume, including singles and doubles social play, 1:1 coaching and formally organised activity for groups, including group coaching (maximum group size and court ratios subject to confirmation)
- Indoor courts to remain closed until later in the roadmap
- Tennis in schools can resume from 8 March (see below)
Summary Grid - Permitted tennis activity from 29 March
We have produced a simple summary grid outlining what the Government's publication of the roadmap means for tennis activity from 29 March, and setting out the key relevant aspects for tennis in terms of how the roadmap will progress under each step, which can be downloaded via the link below.
This document will be updated as and when we receive confirmation of further detail from Government and Sport England. We will also republish updated versions of the LTA's full COVID-19 Secure guidelines for tennis players, coaches, official and venues in due course.
