Well what a week that was! Ending lockdown with midnight tennis with DIY lighting proved a great hit with Granada Reports , Lancashire Evening Post, BBC Radio 5live, LTA, Chorley Guardian and too many news sites to mention. We've even reached Australia! If you missed/didn't catch any of that, links and pictures should be added to website soon.

The PM oulined a 4 step programme to lift Cv19 restrictions
Outdoor sport will be allowed from March 29th - so this means the tennis courts will be open & play will begin again. (Please remember to book your court via the website or Clubspark app). At the moment, the full implications of the loosening of restrictions have yet to be fully agreed with the cricket authorities, however the ECB website states that they are working with government to produce the relevant guidelines. (The cricket season is scheduled to begin on April 17th).
Outdoor hospitality has been permitted from April 12th - rule of 6 / 2families to apply - but this is dependant on a further government announcement that Step 2 can be entered.
Indoor adult exercise may be permitted from May 17th if the government authorises a move to Step 3. Indoor hospitality is to be permitted at step 3.
National Lockdown Jan 5th
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on 4 January of new national lockdown restrictions to be introduced across England, the LTA can confirm that regrettably all indoor and outdoor tennis facilities will need to close.
Other forms of indoor activity remain prohibited so there will be no pilates, yoga or fitness classes. Similarly, we are not allowed to open the bar or to run social activities such as Quiz night in the club. However, Pilates & yoga are having weekly Zoom sessions and Quizzes will also be Zoomed to all who wish to participate.
Exercise outside is allowed - either alone or with others in your household, support bubble or with one other person from another household .
Let's hope we can get back towards normality soon!
