Covid-19 Update (23rd November 2020)
Following the confirmation by the Prime Minister that England will return to a three-tier system of regional restrictions once the current lockdown period ends on 2nd December, the LTA is working with the Department for Culture, Media & Sport on the full details of what this will mean for tennis.
However, it is confirmed that :
- Outdoor tennis will be able to resume across all tiers
- In Tier 2 areas, indoor sport can take place within households as before, but people will also now be able to play certain sports which do not involve close proximity or physical contact against one person from another household, such as a singles tennis match
- In Tier 3 areas, indoor sport (including tennis) as well as exercise classes will be restricted to within your household only. Outdoor sport will be able to continue
- Organised activities for U18s and disabled people will be able to continue indoors across all tiers
As soon as the LTA has full confirmed guidance, , an updated summary grid for tennis activity by tier that can take place after 2 December will be published, together with updated full guidance documents for players, venues, coaches and officials.
More details can be found on the LTA website.
