USTA RECOMMENDATIONS ON PLAYING TENNIS AND STAYING SAFE

USTA RECOMMENDATIONS ON PLAYING TENNIS AND STAYING SAFE

If you haven't already seen it, USTA.com has dedicated a section of its website to COVID-19 and has released guidelines for players and facilities. Whether or not you have access to a tennis court, there are some great resources on this page.

Here are a few callouts:

Tennis at Home - USTA
This USTA.com has numerous drills, tips, and videos to do off the court, whether or not you are social distancing. One of our favorite videos is Agility Drills - be sure to check out the Federer inspired drill at the end

Tennis at Home - Net Generation
Net Generation is the USTA's effort to get a new generation of kids interested in tennis, but their Tennis at Home activities are great for kids and adults alike. Be sure to check out this page for some inspiration on practicing your shots at home. 

On the Court Recommendations
This set of recommendations is great regardless of whether or not you are headed to the tennis court soon. This guide was designed to help instruct players now and in the future how to return to tennis and minimize risk. The first section on this list is dedicated to following your local guidelines, and we cannot stress that enough. The other sections cover what to do before, during, and after play.

Facility and Programming Recommendations
The Facility and Programming Recommendations also begin with following your local guidelines. The other sections include how to structure activities, providing a clean environment, and interacting with clients. 

For Zoom Meetings

For those of you who are joining Zoom meetings, here are a few virtual backgrounds you can use to add a little tennis to your day.
