Longview Tennis COVID19 Guidelines for Play

(from USTA National Guidelines)

Before you play:
● Arrange to play only with family members or others who live in your household or with
individuals who are considered to be low risk.
● We recommend singles play when possible.
● We recommend every household group use their own tennis balls for serving (ie. if you
are playing singles with someone from outside your household, each player will need
their own balls to use when they serve).
● Do NOT play if you:
Are exhibiting any symptoms of the coronavirus: mild to severe respiratory illness
with fever, cough and difficulty breathing, or other symptoms identified by the
CDC.
Have been in contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days.

● Arrive as close as possible to your scheduled time.
● Avoid touching court gates, fences, benches, nets, etc.
During play:
● Stay at least six feet apart from other players. Do not make physical contact with them
(such as shaking hands or a high five).

● Avoid touching your face after handling a ball, racquet or other equipment. Sanitize your
hands promptly if you touch your eyes, nose or mouth.
