Coronavirus Update 23 March 2020
The message from the Prime Minister this evening should result in all tennis activities being suspended. Detailed advice for venues and coaches can be found by following the links on the following page: https://www.lta.org.uk/about-us/tennis-news/news-and-opinion/general-news/2020/march/coronavirus-covid-19---latest-advice/
Based on information we have received from the LTA, we know that 80% of the LTA Accredited Coach workforce are declared as self-employed and understand that this brings with it particular worry and concern right now, especially with the announcement tonight that ends all tennis coaching. The LTA and many other bodies are in ongoing conversations with Government to make sure the concerns of the self employed are heard. These bodies are all pushing for Government to make further support available. In the meantime, Cambridgeshire LTA will try and support the local workforce with both advice and, in certain circumstances, some limited financial support. If any coach needs any assistance or if anyone in our community is able to help, please contact us at the firstname.lastname@example.org
