Guidelines for Tennis

Do your part to insure the health and safety of yourself and others

Our Tennis Courts are available for your use. Please read all Updated Club Policies and Guidelines for Tennis.

New Policies

  • No Large Group Clinics for Adults or Juniors

  • Tennis Shed is for Staff Only

  • There will be No Racquets or Balls available to borrow

PREPARING TO PLAY

  • Clean and wipe down your equipment; including racquets, bags and water bottles.

  • Wash your hands and/or use hand sanitizer before going to the court. 

  • Avoid touching court gates, fences and net. If possible, use a clothed body part to open or close a gate or curtain.

 

WHEN PLAYING

  • Use new balls when possible. Although unlikely, its possible that a tennis ball can transmit the COVID-19 virus, as virtually any hard surface can transmit the disease. So here is an extra precaution you can take to keep safe when playing tennis: Open two or four cans of tennis balls that do not share the same number on the ball. Each player has their own set of tennis balls that only they touch and are used for their service game only. During play only the server handles only their set of tennis balls. Between points the other players use their racquet head to push or hit the balls back to the server. The other balls are set aside until the serve rotates to a new player.

  •  Do not share racquets or any other equipment such as wristbands, grips, hats and towels.

  • Try to stay at least six feet apart from other players. Do not make physical contact. No handshakes or high-fives.

  • If you need to sneeze or cough, do so into a tissue or upper sleeve. If you cough or sneeze evaluate you and the area. This is the moment to use an abundance of caution. Wash and/or sanitize your hands immediately. Immediately wipe down/sanitize any surface that you may have just contacted.

  • Use your racquet or foot to hit or move balls to your opponent or to an adjacent court. Avoid using your hands to pick up the balls.

  • Stay on your side of the court. Avoid changing ends of the court.

 

AFTER PLAYING

  • Again, avoid contact with gates and doors.

  • Wash your hands thoroughly and/or use hand sanitizer immediately after leaving the courts.

  • Be Aware

  • Stay Engaged

  • Live Healthy
