COVID-19 Safety Tips


Click here for the latest, full USAPA guidance on safe return to play. It’s quite detailed and helpful.  Here’s a summary of items of particular interest:

  • Consider playing with only family members or others who reside in your household.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water and bring personal use hand sanitizer to the courts.
  • Clean and wipe down your paddles and water bottles. Do not share paddles or any other equipment or clothing.
  • Bring a full personal use water bottle(s) and avoid touching or using public water fountains.
  • Bring tissues or a handkerchief for contained sneezing and coughing or consider wearing a mask.
  • Consider wearing gloves to the courts and avoid touching court gates, fences, benches, etc.
  • Also consider wearing gloves during play to avoid picking up pickleballs with your hands.
  • Coordinate with your play group so that each person serves with a different color ball. If multiple colors are not an option, use a sharpie and prominently mark personal pickleballs with your initials.
  • Do not play if you are exhibiting any symptoms of coronavirus, have been in contact with anyone with COVD-19 in the past 14 days, or are a vulnerable individual over age 65 or with serious underlying health conditions.

  1. The tennis courts at Pioneer Park in Frisco have been busy with tennis players the last two weekends I’ve ridden my bike past them. Any thoughts?
