Tennis is Back!Top_10_Reasons_to_Play


As courts and tennis facilities are re-opening all across Chicagoland, we encourage players to plan for a safe return to the game we love. Tennis is a great for your mind and body. We encourage you to practice the following guidelines for keeping yourself and others safe and healthy as you return to the courts:

  • Stay at least six feet apart from other players. Do not make physical contact.
  • Consider not playing doubles, which could lead to incidental contact and unwanted proximity.
  • Avoid touching your face after handling a ball, racquet or other equipment.
  • Wash or sanitize your hands promptly if you have touched your eyes, nose or mouth.
  • Avoid sharing food, drinks or towels.
  • Use your racquet/foot to pick up balls and hit them to your opponent.
  • Avoid using your hands to pick up the balls.
  • Stay on your side of the court. Avoid changing ends of the court.
  • If a ball from another court comes to you, send it back with a kick or with your racquet.
