Bonus August Swim & Tennis - Registration required

Based on interest from the SS&T community, we are going to continue with both swim and tennis lessons in the first 2 weeks of August, Mon-Thurs. (Tennis teams won't continue but we encourage the kids to organize their own matches!)

These offerings are for all members, renters, and August families.

To have our youth swim & youth tennis instructors available for 2 additional weeks, we will be charging a nominal fee of $10 per child/per week for 2 days (M/W or T/Th) of swim lessons and $10 per child/per week for 2 days (M/W or T/Th) of tennis lessons. There will be no charge for ‘bonus’ adult tennis clinics that will continue until August 13th.

For example, if you have 2 children who were interested in continuing both tennis and swimming for the first week and only tennis lessons for the 2nd week, you would pay:

o Week 1/August 3-August 6:  
♣ $10 for child A/swim
♣ $10 for child A/tennis
♣ $10 for child B/swim
♣ $10 for child B/tennis
o Week 2/ August 10-August 13:
♣ $10 for child A/tennis
♣ $10 for child B/tennis
o TOTAL due:  $60

Our preferred payment method is through Venmo: @Sudbury-Swim-Tennis. If you don’t have a Venmo account, checks can be mailed to PO BOX 19. PLEASE indicate on your check and/or in the Venmo payment what you are paying for - child name(s), swim and/or tennis, and for what week(s).

SS&T 2020 Tennis Program Plan

Tennis Programs

The USTA has issued guidelines for indoor and outdoor tennis programs and facilities which helped guide SS&T’s programming.  Some of the key guidelines include:

  • Stay at least 6 ft apart from other players 
  • Do not make physical contact with them such as shaking hands or a high five
  • When playing doubles, coordinate with your partner to maintain physical distancing
  • Avoid touching your face after handling a ball, racquet or other equipment. 
  • Avoid sharing food, drinks or towels
  • Avoid using hands to pick up balls. Use your racquet/foot to pick up balls and hit to opponent.
  • Maintain physical distancing if changing ends of the court
  • Remain apart from other players when taking breaks
  • If a ball from another court comes to you, send it back with a kick or a racquet
  1. Tennis instructors will have their own tennis balls and only they will be allowed to touch or pick those up. This will prevent participants from touching tennis balls during lessons and practices.
  2. Practices and lessons involving serving drills will require that participants bring their own marked tennis balls to use.
  3. We are currently keeping 4 students to a court, utilizing all 5 courts, when needed.
  4. Hand sanitizing will be required prior to and after a member is finished on the tennis court.
  5. Tennis equipment and furniture will be sanitized at regular intervals throughout the day 
  6. A log will be kept to show who was on the courts during each session.
  7. The Junior Development Co-ed Team (3rd-6th graders) will not be participating in inter-club matches this season.  We still will offer practices to train this age group on how to play in matches, and offer internal match experiences.
  8. The Sudbury Valley League (SVL) cancelled their program this summer due to Covid-19. We will still have separate Boys and Girls SVL teams with weekly practices, and develop a program to offer match play with our own member players.
  9. The schedule of tennis practices and lessons will be modified as necessary to accommodate state and local guidance for these activities.
  10. Sadly, freeze pops will be on hold at this time. L

  • Singles court time is for 1 hour*
  • Doubles court time is 1 ½ hours* 
  • Unreserved courts are available on a first come, first serve basis.

 

Only smooth-soled tennis shoes may be worn. NO running shoes (please keep this in mind if your children will be playing on the team).

*Clay courts MUST be swept after you use them. Please factor this into your scheduled time so that the courts will be ready for people who have the court reserved after you.
