Nassau County Executive Laura Curran announced new tennis guidelines as the County’s outdoor tennis courts reopened Friday, May 15. These guidelines, implemented to allow residents to practice the sport safely, include:
- Only outdoor courts will open.
- Only singles play.
- Every other court will be utilized.
- Each player should bring their own sleeve of balls and should not touch other balls with hands to prevent cross contamination. Players must use their foot or racket to send the ball back to the other player.
- Do not share equipment.
- To avoid confusion between the tennis balls, players are encouraged to use different colored tennis balls or put a mark (your initials, an X) on their tennis balls so they can easily tell between the two.
All county ball-fields, dog-parks and tennis courts have been officially closed since March 21st in an effort to curb the spread of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
