Tennis Lesson Guidelines and Policies for Fall 2020


We would require the following guidelines:

  • Masks are ALWAYS required if lessons are hosted on the indoor tennis courts (This includes the instructor and the attendee).
  • All parents of minors must wear a mask in the facility and only 1 parent/guardian is permitted at time (Please note, there will be no benches or seating on the indoor/outdoor tennis courts).
  • If lessons are hosted on the outdoor courts, masks must be worn at the service window when making payment
  • Court 1 is reserved for Pickleball only
  • Instructor and players must remain a minimum of 6 feet apart at all times
  • Lesson start/end times must be staggered for a minimum of 15 minutes to ensure there is no overlap in participants. Participants should not arrive more than 10 minutes prior to the start of their lessons.
  • All participants must bring their own racket
  • All participants must pay for the lessons at the back of the clubhouse
  • Debit/Credit/Check payments only (no cash)
  • Aerosol Disinfectant should be sprayed over the balls at the end of each lesson
  • Players should stay on their side of court and avoid changing ends.
  • Live ball drills and game-based play is recommended over using baskets
  • Limit the use of coaching equipment such as target cones. Any equipment will be disinfected after each lesson. 
  • Players are encouraged to use their racquet/foot to push balls back and/or hit them to their opponent to avoid using hands and touching the balls
  • Use ball tubes and basket pickups to pick up loose balls after a ball machine rotation also limits contact.
