Tennis in lockdown: an update

We’re pleased to report that our courts have been open for almost a month now, following the easing of lockdown, but are for the use of members, only. This is the official policy from the LTA, so unfortunately we’re not able to invite guests to play at the club at the moment.

The LTA has issued new guidance about playing tennis during lockdown, which is applicable from June 1. Following new government measures, both doubles and singles are now permitted, with people outside your household, as long as you maintain social distancing of two metres at all times. You need to book courts in advance, online, in order to play and must clean all equipment before and after use. Please wash or sanitise your hands thoroughly, before and after your game.

If you haven’t played for a while, you can read the full guidance from the LTA here. But regardless of how recently you’ve played, please make sure you’re up-to-date with the latest information, as guidance changes frequently at the moment.

If you’d like to join Mersey Bowmen, click here to join via our secure Clubspark page, which will also give you access to book courts online.

We look forward to seeing you on a tennis court soon!
