As relaunch efforts continue across the province, Tennis Alberta is providing an update on the relaunch of tennis in Edmonton and Calgary.
The City of Edmonton is taking a phased and balanced approach to relaunch efforts. Effective Friday, May 22, playgrounds, skateparks, tennis, pickleball, volleyball and basketball courts, disc golf, outdoor fitness parks and athletic tracks will start to re-open.
In all re-opened spaces, users must follow public health guidelines including:
Some courts and courses, for basketball and disc golf, will be ready immediately. Tennis courts will take a bit longer to unlock and reopen in order to rehang nets and clean surfaces. The City of Edmonton asks that if barriers are in place, allow their crews the time to remove them, in order to ensure everyone’s safety.
More detailed guidelines and information for safe sport court use and relaunch plans are available at edmonton.ca/covid-19
The City of Calgary recently announced that they are opening up doubles tennis and group activities up to 50 people. There will not be any tournaments allowed at this time.
