Program Guidelines Announced for Adult Leagues, Social Leagues

Nicole Hardenstine | June 18, 2020

Ahead of a highly anticipated return to the tennis courts, the USTA Florida Section is pleased to announce return to play recommendations for Adult and Social Leagues across the state.


"We are so happy to announce the resumption of play in some areas around the state,” said Christine Ducey, Adult Tennis Director for USTA Florida. “We hope that everyone will take a few minutes to review the safety guidelines for Adult and Social league play so that we can resume the sport that we are so passionate about without endangering others."


The safety and well-being of all players and event personnel remains the first and foremost consideration of USTA Florida. Throughout the past two months, the non-profit organization shared the challenges and questions needed to be addressed before programs could resume amid the COVID-19 environment with the Florida tennis community. More than 3,100 league players provided feedback that was critical to the development of these guidelines that will assist USTA Florida in resuming league programming this summer and fall.


League restart times will vary by each area. Players are encouraged to contact their local play coordinator for specific restart dates in their region. For a list of all adult and social leagues that will be resuming and starting this summer, click here.


USTA Florida highly recommends that all players and facilities adhere to the league guidelines, as well as all local health and safety regulations when returning to play. The guidelines include format modifications as well as recommendations for both players and facilities. To view the full guidelines, click here.
