TENNIS LESSONS DURING COVID-19

Please follow these guidelines when taking a private or semi-private lesson at KTC.

REQUIREMENTS, SAFETY MEASURES, AND PROTOCOLS:

Coaching will not be permitted if the coach and/or student meet any of the following criteria:

  • You are sick (even a little under the weather)

  • Have any symptoms of the coronavirus

  • Have been in contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days.

  • Are a vulnerable individual

Be aware that although restrictions are eased, safety precautions must remain in place until there is a universal vaccine or effective treatment for the coronavirus.

IF PRO FEELS THE SOCIAL DISTANCING CANNOT BE MAINTAINED, THE PRO MAY REFUSE

BOOKING AND PERFORMING/COMPLETING THE LESSON

BEFORE THE START OF A LESSON:

  • Student(s)/coach should come to facility no more than 5-10 minutes before the time expected to play.

  • Each student must have a can of marked balls if serving will be part of the lesson (marked with your initials or other recognizable feature).

  • Student(s)/coach must have 2 towels (1 for placing on a chair to sit and 1 for wiping sweat off)

  • Student(s)/coach should bring enough water with them for proper hydration (no water refills available on-site but bottled water is available for purchase)

  • Having a parent/guardian present at the facility with juniors under age 18 is highly recommended. When that is not feasible, the parent/guardian must provide written permission for each junior participating in a coaching session and/or when playing with other juniors or adult members.

  • Physical distancing requirements (minimum of 6 feet apart) plus not to touch anything on and around the courts besides their own belongings, this includes the nets, entry door, netting, fencing, etc. 

  • Wash or sanitize your hands

  • Group coaching should take place only where full social distancing is possible. Group coaching should be limited to small groups. An exception would be where all participants are family members or are otherwise in one home.

  • Practice caution with the tennis balls and avoid letting the participants touch them. Although there is no specific evidence that tennis balls can spread COVID-19, we know that contamination by respiratory droplets from an infected person can potentially survive on hard surfaces up to three days.

 

DURING A LESSON:

DISTANCING MEASURES FOR STUDENTS AND COACHES:

  • Try to stay at least six feet apart from the other player. Do not make physical contact with them.

  • Don’t change ends of the court

  • No racket sharing

  • No high fives

  • When taking a break stay apart from the other player(s)

CONTACT MEASURES FOR STUDENT(S) AND COACH:

  • Avoid touching your face after handling a ball, racquet or other equipment.

  • Wash your hands promptly if you have touched your eyes, nose or mouth.

  • Do not use water fountains or use them to refill water bottles.

  • Use your racquet/foot to pick up balls coming from another court. Don’t use your hands to pick up.

  • Limit the use of coaching equipment such as target cones.

  • Players should not handle coaching equipment.

AFTER A LESSON:

DISTANCING PROTOCOLS:

  • Do not shake hands or high five.

  • Be mindful to take all equipment, towels, water bottle, etc. with you.

  • Take all your garbage (if any) to the one large receptacle off the court and place inside without touching

  • Use the hand sanitizer available at the court exit.
