Coronavirus (Covid-19) – Advice for tennis players


| News

Please refer to this page regularly for the latest advice and guidance on dealing with Covid-19.


The absolute priority of everyone in Britain needs to be protecting the health of the nation, with a requirement to dramatically adjust our behaviour to help slow the spread of the disease, prevent the NHS from being overwhelmed, and ultimately save lives. The way everyone can do this is complying with the Government’s guidance and staying at home.

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday evening (23 March) all tennis facilities and courts should be closed, and tennis coaching and activity should be put on hold with immediate effect.

The information on this page has been produced based on the latest information available to us and in consultation with both Tennis Scotland and Tennis Wales, and follows our continued dialogue with Government.

The guidance on this page is intended to be read in conjunction with the information on the LTA’s main coronavirus (Covid-19) page which provides links to the latest Government and NHS advice.

To help everyone continue to stay active, we have produced a series of videos as to how to enjoy tennis at home - follow LTA channels to get more #TennisAtHome conent!
