As restrictions have eased, clubs up and down the country have been able to restart sessions for junior players.
As of April 12th, play was allowed to restart indoors for children up to the age of 18 and Disabled People in bubbles of up to 15. One-to-one coaching of under-18s indoors is also permitted.
Restrictions still exist for adults playing indoors – click here to read our latest guidance statement.
Among those to return are Bury St Edmunds TTC, for whom John Waters said turnout had been excellent at the junior sessions, with the vast majority of members returning.
He added: “We were very pleasantly surprised how quickly everyone got back into playing, and the standard was as good, if not better, than we had our sessions in September/October last year.
“Our approach to starting again was very much ‘let’s just get on with it’. We gave everyone a very warm welcome back, went straight into a half-an-hour of shots practice to remind everyone of how to do them, and then some games for the rest of the session. The sessions seemed to be very well-received.”
Below are some of the other clubs to have been in action, including Ormesby TTC, where members of the England Junior Squad have also held a session, and both Continental Stars TTC and Stilton TTC, where adults took advantage of the recent warm weather to play outdoors.
