We are saddened to report that the club is now closed in line with National restrictions, the nets are down until we are informed otherwise. Over the coming days we will be putting together our online Cardio Tennis workouts; Rich Little our Head Coach will set his weekly challenge for all our aspiring juniors and we hope that we can all get to meet at least once on zoom for a social quiz evening as well!
In the meantime, do stay safe and follow the guidelines as we continue to work at improving your club and the facilities over the coming weeks.
Update from the LTA (www.lta.org.uk/coronavirus)
“The Government has announced new national restrictions for England between Thursday 5 November – Wednesday 2 December.
Despite the LTA and tennis community making a strong case to Government, we can confirm that the new restrictions mean that tennis activity in England is not permitted for the duration of the national lockdown, as a result of the closure of all outdoor and indoor facilities. The only exceptions to this are for elite tennis players, and for tennis activity in schools, colleges and other educational establishments as part of education.
Whilst we are disappointed with the outcome, we must urge all involved with tennis in England to adhere to the decision that the Government has taken.
We know these restrictions will have a significant impact on the whole tennis community, and our focus now will switch to campaigning to ensure that as much grassroots tennis activity as possible can resume as soon as possible, including both indoor and outdoor tennis.”
Update from Scott Lloyd
Tennis at Home
“We have a dedicated online hub – Tennis at Home – where you can find a host of support and advice to keep active, healthy and entertained at home, before we can return to on-court play. From LTA Youth coaching and educational content to keep children and families busy, to fitness, physio and yoga programmes to support your physical and mental wellbeing whilst working from home.”
