LTA: Disability Tennis Competitions 2021 Update!

LTA: Disability Tennis Competitions 2021 Update!

As you can imagine with varying restrictions across the UK at the moment it has been tricky to finalise a competition calendar. Understandably many venues don’t want to commit to any events early in the year due to uncertainties, so you will notice most events start a little later than usual.

Below are the events booked in so far, more dates will be added in the New Year and thank you very much for your patience on this. All dates are provisional and are subject to change depending on lockdown restrictions in 2021.

Dates and well as entry links will be added to the Disability Competitions Calendar which can be found here: https://www.lta.org.uk/play-compete/competing/disability-competitions-calendar/

LTA Suspension of Events

Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) Immediate Suspension of Events

LTA implemented an immediate suspension of activity it delivers.

In light of the Government’s statement on Monday 16 March, the Lawn Tennis Association the LTA implemented an immediate suspension of activity it delivers.

We have further reviewed our position and a suspension is now in place for the foreseeable future, including all LTA organised training sessions and training courses.  In addition, all LTA staged and LTA approved competitions (grade 1 to 6) up to 20 April 2020 have been cancelled.

As the Covid-19 pandemic continues, LTA will remain in communication with the Government and continue to assess the implications of their advice for tennis activities in Britain and all those involved in delivering them.
