Sadly, the LTA have confirmed that their representations to the Government to stop the ban on all tennis activities during the forthcoming lockdown have failed. So this means that we are forced to close the club down completely until 2nd December. This is a great shame as the Committee and the Coaching staff have gone to great lengths to implement and follow strict Covid-secure protocols and have increased safe, socially distanced activity back to good levels for adults and juniors.
The LTA are going to continue to campaign to stop this ban and get tennis going again before the end of the current lockdown on 2nd December. This is now our best hope and we can help by writing to our MP and making the case that socially distanced outdoor tennis within a COVID secure environment does great things for our physical and mental wellbeing and we see no strong justification to ban it.
