Tennis & Latest COVID-19 Information

Share this

In accordance with Governor Walz's latest Executive Order issued 3/15/21, the following guidelines must be followed while playing tennis in an indoor facility.

  • Face coverings must be worn by all people at all times, including practices, in accordance with MDH guidance and Executive Order 20-81.
  • For group activities, pod sizes cannot exceed 25 people either inside or outside.
  • Maintain at least 6 feet between participants when they are not playing (on the bench, in the dugout, on the sideline, etc.).
  • Up to one spectator per participant is allowed to attend practices. However, spectators at practices are strongly discouraged.

For people playing individual sports in an outdoor venue that allow people to maintain distance from others are lower risk for transmission of SARS-CoV-2,  a cloth face covering is not necessary for athletes participating if the athletes can stay at least 6 feet away from others. However, if social distancing cannot be maintained, athletes must wear face coverings.

In addition, individual outdoor athletes are still required to wear a face covering when they are around teammates, coaches, or others, and not actively participating in the distanced individual activity.
