At USTA Mid-Atlantic, our number one priority is the health and safety of our players. As sanctioned events and programs continue, we emphasize the importance of reading and reviewing all player guidelines for each program. 


Plus, we want to inform you that a study determined that the surface of sports balls, notably football, golf, cricket, and tennis balls, are unlikely to harbor SARS-CoV-2 in a manner that is compatible with the risk of developing COVID-19 from handling the ball during normal play. The International Tennis Federation (ITF) Sport Science and Medicine Commission, the USTA Sport Science Committee, and the USTA Medical Advisory Group support this conclusion.
