Dear Member

The news from the PM today about the heightened dangers of the Covid-19 variant is distressing.

We have now received confirmation that Hertfordshire has now moved into the newly created Tier 4. This seems just short of lockdown.

The LTA has issued brief updated guidance for tennis:

  • Outdoor tennis courts can remain open for individual exercise, and for people to use with others within your household, support bubble, or with one person from another household
  • Organised outdoor sport for under 18s and disabled people will be allowed to continue in larger numbers

The LTA, currently in discussions with the Government, will issue more detailed guidance in due course. For now, please only play tennis with those from your own household or with one other from another household. So singles play is deemed ok, but please be careful to mind the new rules when playing doubles.

Please abide by the new restrictions, keep safe, and help everyone around you to remain safe during these difficult times.

Eric Rovick

ELTC Chairman
