Swindon Tennis Centre @ St Marks Recreation Ground

COVID-19 Update - Return to Play (updated 10 September)

This version of the guidance has been updated to provide clarity on group activity after the Government confirmed that organised group tennis activity that is currently permitted in line with LTA COVID-19 Secure guidelines, can continue to take place, both indoors and oudoors.  For clarity, from Monday 14 September:

  • For informal social play, group size is limited to a maximum of six people by law
  • Organised tennis activity for larger groups, including coached sessions, club nights and competitions is permitted by the Government as an exception to the limit of six, and so can continue, provided that venues, coaching providers and event organisers follow LTA COVID-19 secure guidelines
