CORONAVIRUS – UPDATE PHASE 3
Following our submission to the Department of Sport the following is now permitted as long as all social distancing rules and bubble rules are followed. I have had to clarify the compliance with a maximum of 30 and bubble size of 6. I have also had to clarify that our team matches are a series of individual games.
Inter-club friendlies – up to a maximum of 12 singles games (maximum of 30 in the gathering). This would also allow 6 doubles games etc.
League matches – following social distancing as above.
Open Competitions / competitions – to comply with the social distancing the maximum rounds that could be played on a single day is 4. This would mean a total of 6 in the bubble assuming all other social distancing is maintained. In practice, this would allow up to 16 (groups of) playing down to 4 with a finals day on a later day (singles). To run an open competition the dates would need to be agreed in the normal way with the county secretary and an action plan completed to ensure the Covid issued have been addressed.
Hopefully, this will allow a wider participation for those who want to organise matches. Each League will need to assess what they intend to do for the rest of the season.
