LTA Guidelines for safe tennis
SUMMARY GRID: COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS IN ENGLAND STEP 1: PERMITTED TENNIS ACTIVITY FROM 29 MARCH
This grid outlines a summary of what tennis activity will be permitted under the Government restrictions across England from 29 March. Where activity is listed as permitted, this may still be subject to additional restrictions and protocols – it is anticipated these will be in line with previous protocols but venues, coaches, players and officials should refer to the LTA's full COVID-19 Secure detailed guidance once updated documents are published (this may not be until w/c 22 March once full Government guidance is made available)
Organised group activity is defined as being activity organised by a national governing body, club, registered instructor/coach, business or charity, where in all cases the organiser must conduct a risk assessment and take all reasonable steps to limit transmission of the coronavirus by reference to that risk assessment & all relevant COVID-19 Secure guidance. This covers formally organised group sessions and coaching – detailed guidance for delivering this activity will be provided in the full LTA COVID-19 Secure guidance documents.
This guidance is for recreational tennis – elite tennis is subject to separate strict protocols and can continue in line with these indoors and outdoors. Further detail for future Steps will be added to this grid once it is confirmed.
