Liverpool & District League cancelled for 2020(June 02, 2020)
The HEAD Liverpool & District Tennis League have released the following statement regarding the cancellation for the 2020 season:
Following a meeting of the Liverpool and District Tennis Group committee, the decision was taken to cancel the fixtures for the 2020 season. This was not a decision we took lightly but in view of recent guidance we felt there was no real alternative.
The decision was based on:
- The LTA cancelling all competitive tennis until at least July 26th.
- People are still concerned and are shielding so travelling to away matches for vulnerable people and juniors would be difficult as well as clubhouses possibly not being open at venues.
- Contact tracing will be starting to quarantine people for 14 days if they have come into contact with someone who tests positive, so the less people you meet the less chance that you will have to self isolate.
We will await further guidance from the LTA but are hopeful of proceeding with the Autumn/Winter League and possibly a version of the Parks Tournament, maybe just singles.
In the meantime we encourage all members to support their club at this time and look forward to resuming competitive tennis in the 2021 season.
