COVID-19 Playing Tennis Safely

Tennis Canada’s tips for playing safe tennis during COVID-19


Tennis NWT is busy planning for the 2020 season.
We are committed to our members and the community by keeping them safe and providing a season of fun and play. What does that look like? We aren’t 100% sure yet. We will keep you updated and let you know when we can all get out and enjoy the courts!


Effective Wednesday, May 27, 2020 courts will be opened for unorganized recreational singles play. Physical distancing of two meters (6 feet) must be maintained, and no sharing of equipment/items is permitted between different households. The clubhouse and washroom will remain closed to the public.
