QUESTION: Why aren’t the courts going to be filled with the popular leagues and other group programs as in the past?
ANSWER: Organized programs and tournaments have been canceled around the world due to the high risk of spreading the COVID 19 virus. Casual tennis is one of the few sports that has been allowed to open with only a few restrictions and rules to lower the risk of spreading the novel coronavirus. There is very little danger while playing ; the danger is in the comings and goings, the social mingling that we are all so drawn to.
QUESTION: What are those rules & restrictions?
ANSWER: There are no major changes. In the first few days after outdoor tennis was deemed relatively safe by the medical experts, only singles play was allowed. Now both singles & doubles are permitted. A few adaptations have helped insure that there is physical distancing and protection from airborne droplets. Masks are required when approaching the court, but not during play. The major concern is social gatherings where people hang together for a little bit too long. Therefore, we'll have rules about not arriving more than 10 minutes ahead of your court time and staying in a waiting area until the other players leave the area.
