Coronavirus (COVID-19) alert from LTA Padel
This pop-up alert provides up to date information as to how the coronavirus (Covid-19) and the latest government advice around it, relates to padel activities in Britain and all those involved in delivering them. This position is under constant review with a dedicated LTA working group doing so on a daily basis based on the latest information.
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. As a result, the LTA Padel Tour (grade 1 to 3) up to May 31st, 2020 must be cancelled, with the status of future competitions under constant review.
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.
The absolute priority of everyone in Britain needs to be protecting the health of the nation, with a requirement to adjust our behaviour to help slow the spread of the disease, prevent the NHS from being overwhelmed, and ultimately save lives. The way everyone can do this is by following the Government’s advice and staying at home.
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday evening (23 March), people will only be allowed to take part in one form of exercise per day like a walk, run or cycle alone or with members of your household. More info
