We are excited to announce that as of Wednesday, Santa Clara County has moved in to the Red Tier in the state's Blueprint for a Safer Economy. The county is now aligned with the state's recreation guidelines, so we no longer need to use cohorts for doubles tennis. Since doubles tennis is considered a moderate contact sport, below are state guidelines for recreation as pertains to tennis.
General Requirements for All Sports:
Irrespective of setting (outdoor or indoor) case rate or sport played, the following general guidance requirements must be adhered to at all times:
- Face coverings to be worn when not participating in the activity (e.g., on the sidelines).
Face coverings to be worn by coaches, support staff and observers at all times, and in compliance with the CDPH Guidance for the Use of Face Coverings.
- Mixing with other households prior to and post any practice or competition must strictly adhere to current gathering guidance.
- Limit observation of youth sports (age 18 years and under) to immediate household members, and for the strict purpose of age appropriate supervision. This includes observation of practice and competition. Limit number of observers to ensure physical distance can be maintained, reduce potential crowding, and maintain indoor and outdoor capacity limits.
- For adult sports, spectators are not permitted at this time.
Below are other general guidance that are strongly encouraged as part of any participation in sport.
- Face coverings worn by participants during practice, conditioning and during competition, even during heavy exertion as tolerated.
- Maintain at least six feet of distance between sport participants and others to the maximum extent possible, including when on the sidelines.
- Maintain at least 6 feet of distance between coaches and participants and facilitate physical distancing between participants to the maximum extent possible.
