Back to Tennis - USTA Middle States

May 29, 2020

In collaboration with local facilities throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and West Virginia, USTA Middle States is sharing best practices displaying what some organizations are doing to stay safe while reintroducing tennis during the COVID-19 pandemic. These may be helpful for those opening their facilities or planning tennis programming for the public. Players and facilities are also encouraged to read through the Playing Tennis Safely Recommendations for both players and facilities. 

 

When considering these best practices, the most important thing is to follow any and all policies put forth in your state and/or local municipalities.

 

Reopening consistent with state and local laws

During this challenging time of pandemic restrictions, facilities and organizations play a key role in protecting the health and safety of their employees. Planning is critical.

To assist in these efforts, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) produced a checklist for large businesses. It identifies important, specific activities large businesses can do to prepare. Many of these will also help in other emergencies.

Considerations for Youth Sports

 

The CDC has also published two ‘Decision Trees’ to assist employers in making decisions during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Below are the two documents that may help tennis organizers make the decision of returning to the workplace or running youth programming.
