ELTC Covid-19 Update – 4th January 2021 – Lockdown phase III

Dear Member

You will all be aware by now of the Government’s 3rd lockdown for England and the national imperative to stay at home, effective immediately.

The LTA have just updated their website to state that “Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on 4 January of new national lockdown restrictions to be introduced across England, the LTA can confirm that regrettably all indoor and outdoor tennis facilities will need to close.”

Therefore, with great sadness I advise you once again that, with immediate effect and until further notice, Elliswick Lawn Tennis Club will be closed to all activity.  Please do not access the club facilities until you are advised by myself or the Committee that it is safe to do so.

We will re-open the club as soon as the Government and the LTA deem it safe and appropriate to do so. The LTA have stated that they will continue to make the case to the Government to allow players back on court as soon as possible. Fingers crossed!

Best wishes for your health and wellbeing over this next period of lockdown.
