The Ontario government has now approved tennis DOUBLES PLAY.

IMPORTANT DOUBLE RULES

If you are not playing with a family member, remain at least 2 meters apart per physical distancing guidelines and do not make any physical contact with other players on and off the court. Each person must bring a can of balls and mark them. No one touches your tennis balls with their hands but you. To avoid too many balls on the court, only the player serving should have their three balls in play – the other players should put their balls aside or in their pocket. 

REGISTERING FOR COURT TIME

Register for a court time on the signup sheet at the back of court 1

Sanitize your hands before entering the court, bring your own pen to register

Court play times are 55 minutes, allowing 5 minutes for you to exit the court before the next member’s time slot

Registered players get priority (only one reservation per day)

ARRIVING TO PLAY

Arrive as close as possible to your time and wait outside of the courts if people playing – do not enter the courts – or sit on the benches to wait

Sanitize your hands before going on to the court

WHEN PLAYING

If a ball from another court comes to you, send it back with a kick or racquet

DO NOT enter the other court to retrieve your ball

If on court 2, do not go in and out of the court behind court 1 during your play

LEAVING THE COURTS

Sanitize your hands before touching the gate or lock

Lock the gate if you are last to leave
