As you are all aware, the Coronavirus outbreak is having a significant impact both globally and here in the UK, in what is an extremely fluid and fast-changing situation.
On Monday 16th March 2020 the UK Government updated its advice, and we are now being advised to avoid gatherings, work from home and limit all travel to only essential trips. It is expected that further measures will be introduced in the coming days.
The LTA has also issued a statement suspending all LTA activity until 20th April 2020. Again, we expect further restrictions to be announced shortly.
As a result, the Walkden and District Tennis League have discussed these developments and regrettably, we now have to announce that all Walkden and District League activities are suspended indefinitely and with immediate effect.
This means the 2020 season will not now start as planned on Wednesday 29th April 2020.
We will continue to monitor the situation, and heed the advice of Government and the LTA and will provide updates as necessary on the Walkden and District League website and via communication to club secretaries.
We hope that it may be possible to play a shortened season at some point this summer and will advise if and when this becomes a possibility.
In the meantime, please look after yourselves and your families.
Walkden and District League
