NECLTL 2020 League and Competitions Update 24 April 2020
I hope you are well and your members and players are safe in these challenging times.
In my last communication I promised you an update in late April regarding NECLTL league and competitions activity going forward which I am doing today.
We share your frustration in having no tennis activity at any of your clubs, whilst fully appreciating the very necessary actions the government and LTA have had to make regarding social distancing to ensure the safety of everyone.
The next government update regarding social distancing outlook and actions is scheduled for the second week in May, which hopefully will include more detailed insights into sporting activity. The actions the LTA have taken is to suspend all tennis activity until 31st May and we await their updates on the subject.
In the meantime all NECLTL league and competitions continue to be suspended until further notice. We hope to get back to you in late May once we have a clearer picture on government and LTA guidance regarding sport and more specifically tennis activity for the months of June and July.
Until then please stay safe and if we can be of any assistance please don't hesitate to contact us.
Yours sincerely on behalf of NECLTL
