Both singles play and doubles play is now permitted with people from outside of your household, as long as you remain 2 metres apart as far as possible – meaning that four people from different households can now play doubles
For padel, doubles play is also permitted but extra care is advised and it should only be done so where players are confident they can maintain 2 metres apart
Coached sessions should be limited to groups of no more than 6 people, including the coach(es)

Stay safe folks.
We have to announce the sad news of the death of Simon Entwistle.
Simon passed away on the 24th January 2020 aged 48 years in America where he currently lived. Simon played tennis for Parrfold Tennis Club for many years until he decided to emigrate to America. Simon was a very talented player who also played in the Bolton and Leigh Leagues. I am sure all of you who remembered Simon will be shocked at this news. Simon will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
