With the world experiencing crisis and humanity living its darkest hour, the present economic fallout has been proven to be “way worse than the global financial crisis.”  The companies are holding up the salaries of the employees. But the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) announced a multi-million-pound package for their staff in Britain.

After having a discussion with Tennis Scotland and Wales LTA decided to make additional support available to venues, coaches, officials and players approximately worth £20m.
