Coronavirus (Covid-19) update from LTA Padel

*UPDATE FROM LTA* (1/06/20)

Playing PADEL During Lockdown

The LTA is in continued discussions with Government and has developed specific guidelines for venues, coaches and players.

Click here: Full guidelines now available from the LTA which apply to both tennis and padel.


Further Information

The below provides an update on all LTA activity during this time, specifically for padel.

Suspension of LTA activity

The LTA has implemented an immediate suspension of activity it delivers, with this suspension now in place for the foreseeable future. This includes all LTA organised training sessions, training courses and competitions.  We have also now extended the cancellation of the LTA Padel Tour (grades 1 to 3) up to August 31st, 2020. 

The LTA, in conjunction with the FIP, has regrettably had to cancel its summer FIP Rise event which was to be hosted at the National Tennis Centre on June 7th, following the latest advice from the UK Government and the suspension of professional padel due to the escalating coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

All those involved in padel in Britain, including venues and coaches, are advised to follow Government advice, referring to the latest information and the guidance issued. For the latest coronavirus advice for coaches click here, for the latest coronavirus advice for venues click here.


In summary, we are cancelling all Grade 1 to 3 padel competitions until the above mentioned date, however we support the delivery of small one-day ungraded padel events, subject to government guidelines, as a substitute for the loss of this activity.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Thanks again for your support and understanding at this difficult time. See full article for more detail.
