It’s a case of ‘no balls please’ as tennis clubs across the country have been forced to shut due to level 5 restrictions.
Following communication with Sport Ireland this morning, tennis clubs were instructed to close with immediate effect.
In a statement today Tennis Ireland said:
Tennis Ireland understands the difficulties and disappointment that this instruction will pose for players, coaches, club volunteers and staff but the challenge caused by COVID-19 impacts across all sectors of society and sport and we need a nationwide effort to fight it.
Tennis Ireland will, as it always has done, work closely with Government and Sport Ireland to reopen our sport as soon as possible, even on a restricted basis, in as safe a manner as possible.”
The move comes as golf courses across the country were ordered to close yesterday.
