Hello Tennis friends,
It is May and we were hoping our tennis programs would be gearing up and we would be together on the courts enjoying this beautiful weather. None of us could have imagined what we would be facing when we were planning this Spring’s programs. From attending school online and working from home to sheltering in place and physical distancing; we all have adjusted as we work together to “flatten the curve”. Of course, we are mindful and thankful to those who are taking care of the sick, keeping the grocery stores open, and providing essential services to keep life as normal as possible.
We are thankful for the excellent guidance from the USTA as we face these unprecedented times. Across the nation, all USTA play has paused, but planning has not and neither has home play. Check out links in this newsletter to see the latest updates and ideas for playing at home.
If there’s one thing this pandemic has taught us, it is to appreciate our community and being together. It’s also motivating us to do the things we must to protect our health and families so we can gather and play safely. So please adhere to current recommendations to prevent the spread of the virus. Let’s take care of ourselves and each other so that one day soon, we will...see YOU on the courts!!
President, RCTA Board of Directors
