Now Open: Tennis Courts

I’ve been watching my neighborhood tennis courts come back to life this week, and it makes me so happy to see. Grab a couple tennis rackets, a Sharpie, some balls, and your favorite child to hit the balls back and forth.

Tips for socially distanced tennis playing

With recreational activities in short supply, be prepared to wait for a while to play. Try to wait six feet away from other playing groups.

  • Bring your own equipment (tennis racket, balls).
  • Bring your own safety stuff (hand sanitizer, mask for to and from).
  • Play with members of your own household group.
  • Use a Sharpie to put a symbol or initial on your tennis balls to keep track of them.
  • Reservations are recommended at some local courts.
  • Don’t touch other player’s tennis balls with your hands (the rule is “You can kick their balls, but don’t touch them” tee hee).
