COVID-19 precautions:

Tennis can be great exercise and a welcome source of stress-relief during pandemic days. It’s a non-contact sport played on a 78-foot long court which makes tennis an ideal social-distancing sport. Players must wear a mask and socially distance when arriving to greet each other (no direct contact) As masks are not required to be worn outdoors in the state of VA at this time masks are not required to be worn during games. Do not play your match if you are exhibiting any symptoms of the coronavirus as identified by the CDC or have been in contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days. Spectators may observe the games from outside the fence with a social distance of at least 6 feet between families.

By registering and participating in an event hosted by East Stratford you acknowledge that you will:

  • Not attend with a fever, with symptoms of COVID-19, or if any member of your household is experiencing symptoms or in a quarantine for exposure. 
  • Remain at least 6 feet apart from people outside of your household.
  • Wear a mask outdoors while in line for events and any time you cannot maintain a social distance of at least 6 feet from people outside of your household.
