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.
