Due to the continued situation surrounding the COVID-19 virus, and after discussions with the USTA Medical Advisory Committee, effective immediately the USTA will extend the suspension of USTA sanctioned products and events, including Adult and Junior Tournaments, USTA League, Junior Team Tennis, Team Challenge, Team Tournaments, USTA Schools programs, Tennis on Campus and Wheelchair events, through May 3. 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 May 3.



On behalf of USTA Nevada, our staff is thinking of you during this tough time. This global pandemic has put a strain on our tennis community. Many of our tennis players are without their favorite places to play, without their friends and without the sport they love as they knew it a few short weeks ago.

We know that tennis creates a unique community like no other. It’s that sense of the community that we want to celebrate at this time. We will continue to post on our Facebook page and website to keep you updated. Our staff is working from home and fully engaged in connecting with the providers in our section. We are actively brainstorming alternative schedules and ideas for future play.

We are confident that when this passes, our players will be more excited than ever to get back on the court. Until then, we are doing our best to monitor the situation and will be in touch about any changes from the USTA perspective.

You can also check the Clark County home page for more updates on COVID-19 or click here for resources & services available.

Stay well & hope to see you soon.

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.

Thank you,
