Statement on Suspension of Events
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, NY
and the USTA National Campus, in the
Lake Nona area of Orlando, FL 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.
