Parks, playgrounds and tennis

Tennis courts available againThe latest advice from the Government's Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) is that the risk of infection outside is significantly lower than inside, so people are now permitted to spend more time outside in our local parks and open spaces. However, social distancing is as important as ever in order to control the spread of coronavirus, so people must remain at least two metres apart and can only meet up with one person from outside their household.

Our playgrounds and outdoor gyms remain closed to the public due to the higher risk of close contact and the health implications of touching shared surfaces.

The good news is that tennis activity in England is now allowed to take place outside and our outdoor tennis courts are available for online booking. Visit www.lta.org.uk/coronavirus for the latest guidance for players, coaches and venues prior to booking.
