Tennis Ireland statement below:

The Tennis Ireland policy and guidance in relation to the Covid 19 pandemic has been reviewed daily and our guidance has always been consistent with HSE and HSC NI advice.  

The advice from these agencies, up until today, has been that it was appropriate to engage in recreational / physical activity as long as social distancing and good hygiene practices were being implemented.  Tennis Ireland communicated this advice on a number of occasions to its Branches and affiliated clubs and recommended that they follow the guidelines in full. 

Having considered the issues, including this evenings statement by the UK Government and the likelihood of additional measures by the Irish Government in the coming days, the Board of Tennis Ireland is now recommending that all Tennis activities be suspended across the island of Ireland until further notice.
