We are delighted with the news that tennis is included in the short list of sports due to re-open in phase 1 of the Government’s roadmap to recovery on Monday 18th May.
We are committed to adhering to the strict guidelines issued for our sport to ensure a safe environment for everyone. We can only do this together and ask that all members familiarize themselves with the TI Phase 1 protocols below before visiting the club.
As always the Government phased restrictions will apply.

The club has a special covid-19 sub committee in place which is liaising with the governing body working to ensure Lansdowne LTC will be ready to provide a safe environment for all members when the time comes to re-open.
This week’s news brings reasons to be optimistic for tennis players as some countries begin to ease restrictions and grant access to outdoor sports including tennis facilities.
