On Wednesday, the USTA compiled tips and guidelines, botrh for players and facilities, on what to do when returning to the courts. The USTA said:

“The USTA recognizes that the coronavirus has been affecting different parts of the country in different ways and with different timing.  We therefore believe it will be possible for people to return to playing tennis safely in some cities and states sooner than others. 

Below are two "Playing Tennis Safely" documents, one geared to players and one geared to tennis facilities, that have been developed by the USTA in conjunction with its Medical Advisory Group and its Industry partners.  These documents provide extensive guidelines for the safe return to the courts. 

By following these guidelines as well as those of local governments and health agencies, facilities and players will be able to make informed decisions as to when play can recommence. 

Please note that the local decisions on phased opening will not apply to USTA-sanctioned programs.  These programs will remain suspended until at least May 31 as previously announced.”
