Tennis Scotland Coronavirus Update

Beyond Level 0 Guidance

The First Minister has confirmed that all of Scotland will move to 'Beyond Level 0' from 9 August 2021.

These changes signal the end of most restrictions for sport and physical activity, and the move will see most legal restrictions lifted, including those on physical distancing and the size of social gatherings - however, please be aware some baseline measures are being retained to mitigate ongoing risks of transmission. This includes:

  • Good hand hygiene and surface cleaning
  • Continued promotion of good ventilation
  • Requirement for face coverings in certain settings (e.g., public transport, retail)
  • Continued compliance with Test and Protect, including self-isolation when necessary

Tennis Scotland and the LTA have updated the summary grid (version 15) of permitted tennis activity by levels of protections to include 'Beyond Level 0' as well as adding a short summary of the mitigating measures that have been retained to the full Tennis Scotland/LTA guidance document for tennis venues, coaches and players in Scotland (version 11). Within both of these documents, details of restrictions applicable under each of the Levels of Protection 0-4 have been retained, so they can be referred to should any areas go back to operating under them.

Guidance Document & Summary Grid

The summary grid and guidance document outline the mitigating measures retained under 'Beyond Level 0' as well as what tennis activity is permitted in Scotland under each of the Levels of Protection. Tennis venues, coaches, officials and players should be aware that the details provided may change at short notice.
