COVID-19 YMCA TENNIS UPDATE


Greater Naples YMCA Tennis Center will re-open - with restrictions - starting Monday, May 18, 2020

The first phase of our reopening includes our tennis center. YMCA members will have limited access to our tennis courts starting this Monday, May 18, 2020.

Because tennis does not require any direct person-to-person contact, players can enjoy the many physical and mental benefits that tennis offers so long as you practice social distancing by keeping six feet apart from other players to ensure you are in a safe exercise environment and follow the safety recommendations listed below, including scheduling court time prior to arriving.


KNOW BEFORE YOU GO:

  • Max of 4 players per court.
  • Arrive as close as possible (no more than 5 minutes before) to when you need to be there and leave the court as soon as reasonably possible.
  • Avoid touching court gates, fences, benches, etc. if you can.
  • Clean and wipe down your equipment, including racquets and water bottles. Do not share racquets or any other equipment such as wristbands, grips, hats and towels.
  • Bring a full water bottle to avoid touching a tap or water fountain handle. There will be no access to the ice machine.
  • Brush and line the court if you wish before playing.
  • Try to stay at least six feet apart from other players. Do not make physical contact with them (such as shaking hands or a high five).
  • Stay on your side of court. Avoid changing ends of the court.
