This area is dedicated to Tennis Alberta news and updates relating to COVID-19

Tennis Alberta is committed to fostering a safe sport environment. Through this difficult and unprecedented crisis, that commitment includes the health and well-being of tennis players as well as every Albertan in the communities where we live and play. Our thoughts are with those personally affected by the virus including their families, our most vulnerable citizens and the incredible health care workers who are facing the pandemic on the front lines.

We are fortunate to have a wide-ranging support network of partners across the province bringing together their expertise to help the tennis industry in Alberta navigate through the uncertainty of COVID-19.

Collaboration and information sharing are critical during this challenging time and Tennis Alberta has created the resource page below with helpful links to support our member clubs, players and our many partners coming together during this crisis. The resource page will be updated regularly as information and updates become available.
