After careful consideration and review from the Club Sport Council, Club Tennis has been permitted to continue with practices alongside several guidelines and changes to ensure our players health and safety.
Player and team capacity has been limited to roughly 20 players in order to accommodate 6 feet social distancing guidelines while inside the Bubble and all players will be required to wear masks during practices. Thankfully, the team has the opportunity to continue to travel to various tournaments with review and approval from Club Sports on a case-by-case basis. We plan to continue practices as normally as possible, including various games, drilling, and match play to provide our players with the best possible experience and ability to improve upon their tennis skills.
Although the circumstances are not ideal, we are excited to be able to welcome back some of our returning players, as well as a few new players. Tryouts will be held Monday September 21, Tuesday September 22, and Thursday September 24 from 9-10:30 PM in the Tennis Bubble in order to fill the remaining open spots on the team. For the Fall semester, we have made the tough decision to suspend our non-competitive team for the time being, until our capacity limits increase, after which we hope to be able to return to our original operations with both non-competitive and competitive team practices.
Club Tennis Exec understands that the parameters are not ideal for many of our returning and incoming players, however, we promise to keep you all updated and informed on any changes that may arise throughout the semester and the following. We hope to be back to our normal schedule next semester, but for right now, we are just excited to be allowed the opportunity to play some tennis:) To everyone, stay safe and healthy and we hope to see you out on the courts soon!
