As for tennis balls, the KTC is encouraging a system in which players colour-code balls and handle only their own

The Kamloops Tennis Centre is expected to reopen to the general public on Tuesday, with COVID-19 regulations in place.

Kelly Hubbard, tennis director and head coach for the KTC, said precautions include sanitizer on all courts, increased time between court usage, no scoreboards to touch, two-metre (six-foot) distancing on benches and physical-distancing rules in the clubhouse.

As for tennis balls, the KTC is encouraging a system in which players colour-code balls and handle only their own.

Hubbard said the KTC had 16 tournaments planned for the spring and summer, all of which may be cancelled due to the pandemic.

On a positive note for the club, Hubbard said he is receiving many calls from parents whose children cannot play team sports and are interested in picking up tennis.

Junior programs are expected to begin in June.

The tennis bubble at the club, located at 758 Front St., remains up and might not come down until next spring.

Crowd-size restrictions are keeping the KTC from taking it down.
