Policies Taken to Prevent Transmission of Covid

Tennis Office

  • The office and bathrooms are cleaned thoroughly each morning; disinfectant will be sprayed on door and handle surfaces regularly as the teaching schedule progresses through the day.
  • Masks must be worn when more than 1 person is present in the office.
  • There is sufficient space for 2 players to sit and keep social distancing.
  • Players in excess of 2 must wait outside prior to lesson/clinic start time and for pickups following.
  • Players using the rest rooms are in addition to those in the waiting area, so after leaving the restroom, please exit the waiting area directly if 2 are already present. The same is true for the reverse so if the rest room is occupied, you must wait outside until it becomes available.
  • The water dispenser located in the office is for the use of the instructors only; players should supply their own water.

Player Conduct

  • Players shall enter the bubble no earlier than 5 minutes prior to your start time.
  • Upon entry to the bubble, apply hand sanitizer which will be made available next to the revolving door.
