Important Coronavirus Update NECLTL – Friday 20th March 2020
As you are all aware, the Coronavirus outbreak is having a significant impact in all areas of the UK, in all facets of our daily lives in what is an extremely serious and rapidly changing situation.
The actions the LTA have taken is to suspend all activity for the forseeable future including all LTA organised training sessions and training courses. In addition the LTA has very recently cancelled all LTA staged and LTA approved competitions up to the 20th April pending review.
NECLTL Committee have discussed the developing situation and have decided the only responsible action to take is to suspend all activities, league and competitions for the forseeaable future. This means the league will not now commence on the 1st April.
We will continue to monitor the situation and heed the advice of the Government, LTA and Sport England and will provide a further communication towards the end of April with additional updates in the coming months, please see the NECLTL website for details. Team invoices will also be suspended until we have greater clarity going forward.
Our hope is that we may be able to salvage some league and competition tennis this Summer/Autumn and we will advise if and when this becomes a possibility in advance. It may be we consider extending the duration of the playing season should this become an option and safe to do so.
Please take care of yourselves and your loved ones at this time.
for and on behalf of NECLTL
