We all know tennis is a unique sport with many benefits – the main one being health and wellbeing. The very nature of our game ensures there is a vital role our sport can continue to play for the benefit of the community as we endure the COVID-19 pandemic.

The COVID-19 Community Tennis Guidelines for Continued Play is an attempt to provide advice for all involved at the community level on the safest way to continue playing.

As long as we all abide by strict health and hygiene guidelines – coaches, volunteers, administrators, associations and tennis centres can continue to provide an outlet for physical and mental health through the sport of tennis.

Additional measures will be required but there is still plenty of opportunity for tennis to be played as long as hygiene guidelines are followed to help support the community’s ability to stem the spread of COVID-19, whilst helping the health and wellbeing of many of us.

Due to the fast evolving nature of this pandemic, conditions beyond our sport and in this environment can change and we will continue to keep everyone updated.

These guidelines provide support for everyone involved at the grassroots level on the safest way to continue playing.
