NATIONAL USTA Suspends Events
March 13, 2020
Due to the heightened concerns surrounding the COVID-19 virus, effective immediately the USTA will suspend all USTA sanctioned products and events, including Adult and Junior Tournaments, League Tennis, Junior Team Tennis, USTA Schools programs, Tennis on Campus, Wheelchair Events and USTA Pro Circuit Events. The health and safety of all players, staff, fans and volunteers are the foremost concern. This suspension is in effect through April 20. The USTA’s goal will be to reschedule events where possible following this suspension period. Additionally, recognizing the evolving and fast-changing nature of this situation, the USTA will continue to monitor and assess conditions to make future determinations about events and activities taking place after April 20.
The USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, N.Y., and the USTA National Campus, in the Lake Nona area of Orlando, Fla., will remain open to the general public for play and instructional opportunities. However, all group activities will be limited in the number of participants. Any patron who wishes to cancel participation in a scheduled
activity should contact the specific location for refund information. Additionally, the fitness facilities, showers and food service at both facilities will be closed. These policies will be in effect pending additional guidance or directives from each local governmental agency and the CDC.
Dear USTA Nevada coaches, captains and players
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, USTA National office has made the difficult decision to postpone ALL USTA adult leagues, Junior & Adult tournaments, and Junior Team Tennis events scheduled from today through April 20, 2020. This will include the 40 & Over District Championships originally planned for April 13-17.
This is not a decision made by USTA Nevada, not is it something we have a say in or can change. It is a national legal decision which we are just starting to wrap our heads around. We know this is very challenging for everyone involved. Please know the intention is to protect everyone involved.
Regarding the league it is postponed and not canceled at this point, and we will know more around April 20th what the next steps will be.
The official USTA National statement is below.
