  • No handshakes at the beginning or end of the match.
  • Players should stay on their side of the court and avoid changing sides during match play.
  • Playing singles is preferred, but not required.
  • Using new balls on a very regular basis is highly encouraged. Although there is no specific evidence that tennis balls can spread COVID-19, we know that contamination by respiratory droplets does occur on hard surfaces, especially ones that are made of felt and therefore players should be mindful of their contact with tennis balls.
  • Replace all balls if someone suspected to have COVID-19 comes in contact with them.
  • Consider spraying tennis balls briefly with a disinfectant spray (e.g., Lysol or Clorox) at the conclusion of play.
  • Match play - Tennis players should each bring a new can of balls to a match, different brands or same brand/different numbers and only serve with your tennis balls. If playing pickleball, use different color balls.
  • Players should use their racquet/foot to push balls back and/or hit them to their opponent to avoid using hands and touching the balls.
  • Players should not congregate in groups before or after playing.

  • Participants should sanitize hands regularly.
