Tennis Ireland has received clarification from Sport Ireland of the new level 5 restrictions.
As sports facilities are not recognised as essential services, the decision of Government is that all gyms, leisure centres, swimming pools and other sports facilities including Tennis Clubs and courts must close during the Level 5 restrictions. This includes both indoor and outdoor sports facilities.
