USTA COVID POLICY
"Based on the recommendations of the USTA COVID-19 Advisory Group, the USTA believes that it is in the best interest of society to take a collective pause from playing the sport we love. Although there are no specific studies on tennis and COVID-19, medical advisors believe there is the possibility that the virus responsible for COVID-19 could be transmitted through common sharing and handling of tennis balls, gate handles, benches, net posts, and even court surfaces."
—USTA Statement on April 3; they recently amended it but this statement continues to apply to areas with shelter-in-place mandates like Denver.
Trust us: We want to be on the courts as much as you do. That said, other summer clubs and courts in the area remain closed as well. We are looking forward to the day when we can open for activity in accordance with safety guidelines and recommendations.
JUNIOR TENNIS TEAM
The USTA (United States Tennis Association) has extended its JTT registration deadline by almost a month to provide facilities more time to get players registered and put teams together.
We will not start play until the USTA, via the CDC, deems it appropriate to do so. Knowing the situation may change, the
USTA has tentatively scheduled the first JTT match for Monday, June 29
, with the season wrapping up on Monday, August 10.
The emphasis for JTT 2020 is local play and we want to provide a full season to all teams. Since we are pushing the deadlines and the season later,
there will not be time to run State Championships this year.
NOTE: In the event that summer JTT is cancelled, a full refund will be processed, minus normal credit card fees of 3%.
All other summer junior tennis lessons are available for registration on the

These leagues will not be cancelled unless the USTA runs out of time for running leagues during 2020.
- USTA Adult 18 & Over (minimum Roster Deadline now May 1st)
While most Eastmoor league rosters are full for the USTA Adult 18 & Over, there is still the opportunity for another 2.5 ladies team and 3.5 ladies team to be added. If you are interested in joining please reach out to tennis chair
