USTANE Coronavirus Updates

 

Playing Tennis Safely Poster

Return to play recommendations

Save on PPE from NetKnacks

 

Latest Statement:

June 1, 2020

8:00 am

 

As the country slowly begins to reopen, USTA New England is taking a close look at transitioning back to the tennis courts. 

 

The return to USTA programming will happen on a case-by-case basis where the local tennis infrastructure and players are ready in accordance with state and local government regulations. Every New England State is reopening at a different pace and towns and cities are also working on their own timelines.

 

As stated previously, adult and junior sanctioned USTA tournament play is suspended until June 29th. We feel this gives players time to get back on the courts, play and train before jumping into USTA competition. 

 

We are looking into USTA League and Junior Team Tennis opportunities in local areas where clubs, facilities and players are ready. Check with your local club and towns for regulations and opportunities to play. 

 

Our Tennis in the Parks Program and Social Tennis Leagues staff are working with local Park and Recreation Departments to determine when play will begin. We are hopeful to start some programs this summer in areas that are safe to do so.

 

USTA New England will send out communications to players when organized USTA play is resuming.


In the meantime, we encourage you to get out on the courts where it is safe and permissible to do so. Tennis is the perfect activity that can be executed at a safe social distance. The sport is good for your heart, mind and body. Please follow the USTA Safety guidelines when you hit the courts and remember to HAVE FUN!

Adult & Junior Tournament Update

 

As we’re sure many of you are, we too are eager to get back on the court. That being said, we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone all June sanctioned tournaments and relaunch both Adult and Junior tournaments starting June 29th. 

 

This allows our players an opportunity to get back on the courts to train and condition prior to playing a sanctioned event and gives tournament directors time to get used to our new normal. 

 

When sanctioned play does resume, tournaments will look different as we develop safer playing experiences. Over the next few weeks, we will establish and share how tournaments will look as we return to play in July. 

 

Junior Sectionals

The June L3 event slated to take place from June 19th - 23rd is postponed. We will look at the remainder of the year to determine how to address this particular event as we evaluate tournament schedules, national deadlines, site availability, and local government guidelines. 

 

Note: Throughout this unprecedented suspension of play, and in support of the 2021 unification of the Junior Competitive Structure, all 17 Sections have worked collaboratively to align and assure a fair and balanced return to play. 

 

 

USTA New England Announces $150,000 of Support for Tennis Provider Network

 

May 22, 2020

7:55 am

 

USTA New England is organizing tennis provider support initiatives that will infuse $150,000 into tennis organizations, facilities and programming as the sport unites to reopen after the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

These initiatives are part of USTA New England’s Get Back on the Court Campaign aimed at helping the tennis provider network in New England return to tennis. This is separate from the additional support allocated by the USTA to the tennis industry. The overarching goals of this assistance are to provide immediate relief, spur the industry’s recovery, and help rebuild the tennis ecosystem once tennis programming resumes.

 

“Our tennis providers are the heart of our sport,” said Matt Olson, Executive Director and COO of USTA New England. “This global pandemic has put tremendous strain on tennis organizations and we feel it is our responsibility to do what we can to help.”

 

USTA New England has committed $100,000 to support tennis facilities and organizations during this time. 

 

Any tennis facility in New England is welcome to apply for the grant, which must exclusively be used to cover the costs of reopening. Facilities that receive a grant will be required to submit receipts for reimbursement. To apply for the grant, click here.

 

An additional $50,000 will support National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL) chapters, Wheelchair Tennis and Adaptive programs in the section. NJTL Chapters can fill out this form to apply.

 

The Get Back on the Court Campaign support is focused solely on the tennis provider network within the USTA New England Section, which encompasses Massachusetts, Connecticut (excluding Greenwich), Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.

 

USTA New England Statement

 

May 7, 2020

12:03 pm

 

We understand the passion surrounding getting back on the court as we feel it too. USTA New England has mailed and emailed a letter along with the USTA Safety Guidelines to the Governor's COVID-19 response units in each New England state. 

 

We intend to equip the decision-makers at the state and local levels with the information they need to open tennis courts and facilities when it is safe to do so in each state. USTA New England is continuing to send the letter out this week to Mayors in our most populated cities.

 

COVID-19 Update and Plans for Future Play in New England 

 

May 1, 2020

10:30 am

 

USTA New England is fully focused on helping players return to tennis and supporting local play once we are able to get back on the courts. Our National office recently announced that USTA League and Junior Team Tennis Nationals are canceled for this year. 

 

Given this news, the uncertainty of the pandemic, and most importantly, our concern for the safety of our players, USTA New England has made the difficult decisions to cancel all USTA League District and Section Championships as well as Junior Team Tennis States and Sectionals for 2020. 

 

All advancing local USTA Leagues and Junior Team Tennis leagues scheduled to start this spring and summer have also been canceled. Individual states may decide to complete adult USTA Leagues that are in progress if there is enough interest when courts reopen.

 

USTA New England will make an announcement soon on credits or refunds for registrations for eligible seasons.

 

These decisions were not made lightly and took a large collaboration of people to determine the course of action. While we know this is disappointing, the good news is, tennis is not going away. We are working on alternative play opportunities for players this summer. Details to come soon. 

 

Additionally, the USTA recently released guidelines for facilities and players to play tennis safely. Please keep in mind that these guidelines are for *when* courts reopen. 

 

Below is a detailed summary of changes by program and how each change may impact players and events within the New England tennis community. If you have any questions, please reach out to your local USTA contact or email info@newengland.usta.com.

USTA New England Statement

 

April 13, 2020

3:50 pm

 

In light of USTA National’s decision to cancel the USTA League and Junior Team Tennis National Championships for 2020, USTA New England is looking at options to promote local play here in our section. 

 

We have not made a decision yet on the state, district or sectional events for this year. We know that everyone is anxious to get back on the court and we will offer USTA play when that happens. These decisions will be made in partnership with local government officials as we are anticipating that play will reopen at different times depending on the local state, city and town regulations.

 

Our staff, USTA League and Junior Team Tennis committees are working hard to brainstorm new play opportunities for when we are able to get back on the court - focusing on local play. As soon as decisions are made, we will communicate them to you. 

 

Stay safe and healthy.

 

USTA National Statement

 

April 13, 2020

3:30 pm

 

Due to the continued situation surrounding the COVID-19 virus, and after discussions with the USTA Medical Advisory Committee, effective immediately the USTA will extend the suspension of USTA sanctioned products and events through May 31. This includes:

 

  • Adult and Junior Tournaments
  • USTA League
  • USTA Junior Team Tennis
  • USTA Social Leagues
  • Team Challenge
  • Team Tournaments
  • USTA Schools programs
  • Tennis on Campus
  • Wheelchair events

 

Additionally, recognizing the evolving and fast-changing nature of this situation, the USTA will continue to monitor and assess conditions to make future determinations about events and activities taking place after May 31.

 

All Category 1 and Super Category 2 National Adult Tournaments with an ITF status, all ITF Junior events, all Junior, Adult and Wheelchair L1 - L3 events, and all USTA Pro Circuit and professional events will align with the same calendar as the ITF, ATP and WTA, and be suspended through July 12. The National Clay Court Championships, slated to begin on July 11, will proceed as scheduled, at this time.

 

“The impact of COVID-19 has been felt across the tennis landscape, and it is our goal to ensure that the sport is able to be played in a safe and healthy fashion at the parks and facilities throughout the country once the pandemic subsides,” said Patrick Galbraith, Chairman of the Board and President, USTA. “One of the greatest aspects of this game is that it fosters a true community, and we look forward to the time when we can return to our local courts and use tennis to unite us all, once again.”

 

The determination has also been made to suspend the calculation and publication of the National Standings List (NSL) for Adult, Junior and Wheelchair play until further notice. The NSL published on March 18 will serve as the most current until tournament competition resumes.

 

In addition, to ensure that play taking place at local facilities will be the focus once the pandemic subsides, the following events will be canceled for 2020:

 

  • USTA League National Championships
  • USTA Junior Team Tennis National Championships
  • USTA Intersectional Team Championships

 

The USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, N.Y., is currently closed to the public. The facility’s Indoor Tennis Center has been converted to a temporary hospital for COVID-19 patients, while Louis Armstrong Stadium is being utilized as a commissary to facilitate the creation of meal packages that are being distributed to patients, workers and New York City school children.

 

The USTA National Campus, in the Lake Nona area of Orlando, Fla., will remain closed for play and instructional opportunities through May 31.

 

Any patron who wishes to cancel participation in a scheduled activity should contact the specific location for refund information. These policies will be in effect pending additional guidance or directives from each local governmental agency and the CDC. The USTA will continue to monitor and assess conditions to make future determinations about all activities at these facilities.

USTA National Statement

 

April 3, 2020

 

The COVID-19 pandemic is creating challenges for everyone across the globe. American tennis players are asking for guidance regarding the safety of playing tennis, especially when social distancing and space sharing issues are now paramount.

 

Based on the recommendations of the USTA COVID-19 Advisory Group, the USTA believes that it is in the best interest of society to take a collective pause from playing the sport we love.

 

Although there are no specific studies on tennis and COVID-19, medical advisors believe there is the possibility that the virus responsible for COVID-19 could be transmitted through common sharing and handling of tennis balls, gate handles, benches, net posts and even court surfaces.

 

As a result of this, the USTA asks that as tennis players we need to be patient in our return to the courts and consider how our decisions will not only affect ourselves, but how our decisions can impact our broader communities. In the meantime, we encourage everyone to stay active and healthy with at-home exercise and creative “tennis-at-home” variations.

 

We look forward to our return to tennis in a safe manner and will provide updates as new information becomes available. By practicing all the recommended guidelines presently put forth by our medical experts, that return will happen in the soonest possible timeframe.

USTA New England Statement

 

March 20, 2020

8:32 am
 

On behalf of USTA New England, our office is thinking of you during this tough time. This global pandemic has put a strain on our tennis community. We are aware that many facilities have closed and some have been forced to lay-off their workforce. Many of our tennis players are without their favorite places to play, without their friends and without the sport they love as they knew it a few short weeks ago. 

 

We know that tennis creates a unique community like no other. It’s that sense of the community that we want to celebrate at this time. We will be active on our social media channels and hope that you interact with us in that way. 

 

Our staff is working from home and fully engaged in connecting with the providers in our section. We are actively brainstorming alternative schedules and ideas for future play.

 

We are confident that when this passes, our players will be more excited than ever to get back on the court. Until then, we are doing our best to monitor the situation and will be in touch about any changes from the USTA perspective.

The health and safety of all players, staff, fans and volunteers are the foremost concern. This suspension is in effect through April 20. The USTA’s goal will be to reschedule events where possible following this suspension period. Additionally, recognizing the evolving and fast-changing nature of this situation, the USTA will continue to monitor and assess conditions to make future determinations about events and activities taking place after April 20.

USTA New England Statement on COVID-19:

 

March 12, 2020

1:02 PM

 

The United States Tennis Association New England office is continuing to work closely with local and national partners to continually monitor the evolving situation associated with the COVID-19 outbreak.

 

It is our top priority to protect our players, their families, our staff and volunteers. In the last 24 hours, there have been rapid developments in relation to the virus. Based on the latest information, we have decided to cancel all USTA programs and tournaments effective immediately through March 31st, 2020. This includes all USTA League matches, sanctioned junior and adult tournaments, Junior Team Tennis matches, Team Challenges, and any other USTA tennis program.

 

Please consult with your local tennis facility about decisions regarding non-USTA play opportunities.

This decision was not made lightly and we believe it is in the best interest of our tennis community to stop all USTA play temporarily in New England.

 

Due to the ever-changing nature of this pandemic, we will be frequently updating our information. Please check this website and our Facebook page regularly for the latest information.

 

If you have any questions, please email us at info@newengland.usta.com.

 

March 11, 2020

8:31 pm

 

The United States Tennis Association New England office is working closely with local and national partners to continually monitor the ever-evolving situation associated with the COVID-19 outbreak.

 

We are in the process of evaluating logistics for USTA tournaments, USTA Leagues, and events taking place through April 30, 2020.

 

Based on the latest information, we currently aim to continue tennis play as planned and not cancel or suspend scheduled matches and programs in the section.

 

While we are monitoring this situation very closely, we encourage you to do the same and to consider all of the facts available to you when deciding whether to participate in an event. Links to resources for each New England state and the CDC are at the bottom of this statement.

 

Our staff is working to respond to matters as they develop and below are answers to frequently asked questions:

 

Adult USTA League Teams and Players

 

Rescheduling & Default Matches related to COVID-19:

 

Players and teams may reschedule or default matches due to COVID-19.  If a reschedule or default is necessary, please communicate with your opponent's captain, the home facility, and your Local League Coordinator.

 

Any match that is rescheduled if players are not available to play as a result of COVID-19 can be considered for a reschedule.  The following parameters will be followed:

  • Rescheduled matches must be completed within the posted local USTA League season dates.

  • Depending on court availability, the rescheduled match can be played at the home facility, opponent’s facility or a third-party neutral site in that order.

  • Both captains must agree on the reschedule date, time, and location.

  • Both captains must clearly communicate via e-mail or phone (preferred) with the home facility and the Local League Coordinator once a rescheduled date, time and location are confirmed.

  • If both teams agree to default or both teams are unable to field a team and no rescheduled match can be accommodated, then the match will be recorded as a double default.

USTA League Local Regulations will apply for procedures related to “Match Cancellations, Defaults & Rescheduling Matches”. Please check with your Local League Coordinator for Regulation references.

 

As new league seasons start, we are encouraging players to continue with TennisLink registrations for their teams and we will be monitoring and evaluating conditions as they change. 

 

USTA Junior Team Tennis Teams and Players

 

It is acceptable for Players/Teams to reschedule and/or default matches due to COVID-19. If a default is necessary, please communicate with your opponent's Coach/Contact, the host facility, and your JTT League Coordinator.

 

Any match that is defaulted due to players being unavailable to play due to COVID-19 can be considered for a reschedule, however, the following parameters will need to be followed:

  • Reschedules must be completed within the posted Local League season dates

  • The host facility must agree to the reschedule. Be advised this could be a different host facility than originally scheduled

  • Both teams must agree on the new date, time, and location.

  • Both coaches must clearly communicate via e-mail with the host facility and JTT League Coordinator once a new date, time and location is confirmed

 

If both teams agree to a default or both teams are unable to field a team and no reschedule can be accommodated, then contact your local league coordinator for your local league default policy.

 

USTA Adult and Junior Sanctioned Tournaments

 

If a registered player decides to withdraw from a tournament or wants an update on the current status of an event, they are encouraged to reach out to the designated Tournament Director (the Tournament Director’s contact information is located on http://tennislink.usta.com).

 

Note about a withdraw: If a player wishes not to participate in an upcoming tournament, we ask that players withdraw online using the TennisLink homepage (you'll need a confirmation number in order to do so) prior to the close of registration. In the event that a player cannot remove themselves online, they'll need to contact the tournament director so they do not get selected into the event.

 

Organization Members and Facilities

 

In the event that a facility temporarily closes due to COVID-19, our office will work with the facility in the hopes of rescheduling or identifying a new location or date for the impacted sanctioned USTA events and programs. Players will be notified of any changes.

 

General Information from the CDC:

 

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.

 

Take steps to protect yourself and others:

  • Wash your hands often

    • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick

  • Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.

  • Stay home if you are sick

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces

  • Cover coughs and sneezes

The most up to date and credible resource for information on the 2019 Novel Coronavirus is the CDC.

 

Other important sites include:

Massachusetts COVID-19 information

Connecticut COVID-19 information

Rhode Island COVID-19 information

Vermont COVID-19 information

New Hampshire COVID-19 information

Maine COVID-19 information

 

Please be assured that our office will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as needed. Your health and safety are our priority and we know that the tennis community will support each other during this time.

 

Sincerely, 

 

The USTA New England Board of Directors and Staff
