USTA COVID-19 Updates
USTA Statement on Safety of Playing Tennis - 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.
Coming together to support pressing needs.
The entire tennis industry has come together to analyze the most pressing needs and the top concerns of all involved in our sport, and to collaborate on programs that can provide the immediate and longer-term support that is needed.
Leading organizations in the industry have collaborated to provide a centralized location to share information about the financial assistance and relief programs available for everyone in the tennis community affected by COVID-19.
