Updates to a Safe Return to Tennis – Facility Guidelines

The Bowmanville Tennis club would like to thank the Ontario
Tennis Association for developing these Stage 2 guidelines
which we have adapted to the BTC. These Guidelines allow for a
Resumption of Doubles Tennis

The guidelines have been developed keeping in mind that the situation is fluid and recommendations could change, based on the latest best-practices released by medical experts and levels of government. `

 SOCIAL/PHYSICAL DISTANCING

● Players must practice physical distancing; staying a minimum of 2 metres.

Limit sharing of balls while on court and more importantly, players should make liberal use of hand sanitizer before, during and after play.

● Cross at opposite ends of the net during change of sides.

CLEANLINESS & HYGIENE STRATEGIES
