LTA has updated advice for clubs and players in relation to the new tiers applied by the government from 30th December 2020. At present Wirral is in Tier 3.
For formal social play: Both singles play and doubles play is permitted with people from outside of your household, as long as you remain 2 metres apart as far as possible –meaning that four people from different households can play doubles.
For informal social play: group size is limited to a maximum of six people by law. This means you can play tennis providing you only meet up with no more than 5 other people from different households and observe social distancing guidelines.
People should not go to a tennis venue socially in groups of more than six.
Travel: Where possible, you should stay local and avoid travelling outside your local tier 3 area other than for essential reasons e.g. education or work. Avoid car sharing with anyone from outside your household or your support bubble. You must not travel if you are experiencing any coronavirus symptoms, are self-isolating as a result of coronavirus symptoms, are sharing a household or support bubble with somebody with symptoms, or have been told to self-isolate after being contacted by NHS Test and Trace.
Hands. Face. Space. Washing your hands regularly, wearing a face covering and social distancing remain the most effective measures to prevent spreading the virus.
