Tennis is recommended as the safest recreational sport to play during the pandemic. Still, please note that health officials in each of SoCal’s various regions and counties will determine the scope of restrictions on activities, including tennis. This means that doubles play, group gatherings, and other activities may be subject to unique limitations within different regions. USTA Southern California will continue to advocate for responsible recreational and competitive tennis play that is consistent with USTA and municipal guidelines and does not require large gatherings of people to congregate at and around tennis facilities. Remember to follow local guidelines and adhere to health recommendations in your area. Learn More about playing Tennis safely.
Given the recent increases in COVID-19 cases in California, the Section has made the difficult decision to cancel, and where possible, reschedule all USTA Southern California-sanctioned tournaments for the foreseeable future. The schedule of tournaments for the remainder of 2020, which remains subject to change, can be found on our Adult and Junior Tournament Calendar pages.
Pending local guidelines, USTA Leagues in Southern California may start as early as July. Every League area is at a different stage of program readiness, and Area League Coordinators (ALC) will have the most up to date information on each area’s Leagues. ALCs may introduce new competitive formats – like Singles Flex, Singles Tri-Level, or other options – as restrictions on doubles remain in place for many areas. USTA will continue working with local leaders across the Section to determine when it is safe to resume regular programming.
