Following further clarifications we have received from Government, tennis activity in England will be able to take place outdoors from Wednesday with singles play only, other than where players are all from the same household in which case they can play doubles.

We’re finalising full guidance for players, coaches and venues and aim to share this as soon as possible via this page.

 

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday evening (23 March) all tennis facilities and courts should be closed, and tennis coaching and activity should be put on hold with immediate effect. From the L.T.A website

The committee have discussed the options and are of the agreement that we lock down the courts for the next 3 weeks after that we will follow the advice of the government as to any further measures which need to be taken, one of the many reasons for this are someone unknowingly has the virus comes down touches the locks and the net winders leaving traces of the virus on the metal which can then be transmitted to all others who follow them onto the courts. We know the advice given is to clean all surfaces you come into contact with to stop the spread of this KILLER virus but it only takes one person to forget and the consequences could in some cases be catastrophic.

To make sure that nobody uses the courts the committee propose to change the locks on the courts wednesday morning.

Monday March 23rd

All Bradford Parks League matches cancelled until July 4th this will be updated once we know the extent of the virus.

Please follow advice on NHS.UK website and help us all stay safe and well. Thank you.
