Risk Assessment: Recognize that there are risks of being exposed to or contracting Covid-19 should you decide to enter the Taylor Tennis Club for the purpose of playing tennis. Inherent risk factors associated with tennis which should be considered include, but are not limited to, the following listed below:

  • Do not play if you are considered a vulnerable individual (elderly individuals, immunosuppressed persons, individuals suffering from serious health problems, notably high blood pressure, pulmonary diseases, diabetes, obesity and asthma)

  • Taylor Tennis is an indoor sport facility.  Indoor sports are considered more risky

  • Risk of transmission if another occupant, staff or tennis coach at Taylor Tennis is Covid-19 positive/contagious. 

  • Risk of touching a surface or tennis ball which is contaminated with covid-19. While there is still no evidence as to whether the virus can live on a tennis ball, we do know that contamination through respiratory droplets from one infected person to another can potentially survive on surfaces for up to three days.
