Update from Tennis Ireland

Dear Members

COVID-19 Update
Earlier this week the Taoiseach announced that the current Level 5
COVID-19 restrictions have been extended until 5th April. Unfortunately,
this means, that even though Tennis is a naturally socially distanced
and safe activity, clubs are required to remain closed.

We are aware of the impact that the restrictions are having on the
physical and mental health of individual members of all ages, and the
financial impact they are having on clubs. We would have liked
restrictions to be lifted without delay but, according to the Taoiseach,
there is a need to minimise the opportunities for people to travel and
gather in order to suppress the virus and this must be respected.

The Taoiseach did outline that should there be an improvement in the
situation, the Government will examine the possibility of easing
restrictions on outdoor gatherings and certain sporting activities in
advance of April 5th.

Tennis Ireland is working closely with a range of non-contact sports
such as rowing, cycling, canoeing, sailing, athletics and golf to
co-ordinate efforts with Sport Ireland and Government to allow our sport
to open as soon as possible.  We are also engaging with Sport NI to get
an update on the status of the restrictions in Northern Ireland.

We will continue to work on behalf of our clubs and their members and
will keep you informed of any developments.
