Riverside tennis club plans for COVID-19 AND COPING

Update May 11, 2020.

Riverside Tennis Club will continue to follow the Governors guidelines as we stay open.  We will reevaluate on Monday May 25, 2020.  


  1. New members and guests are welcome starting this week, must follow all guidelines we have set during this time. This can change due to the guidelines and health assessments.  Commitment fees for full time memberships are waived through June.  Non-Prime has a $100 commitment fee.
  2. Gym is closed, no shower facilities.
  3. No organized large social gatherings at the time
  4. Junior Clinics are scheduled to start back the first week of June. More info on our Junior page
  5. Junior Camps are on schedule at this time, strick guidelines will be set, more details to follow. More info on our Junior page.


The health and safety of our Riverside Tennis Club members is our first priority.  In light of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns, we are taking the following precautions in order to keep everyone safe at our facility. We will rely on SCDHEC AND THE CDC for information on moving forward.  



We are following the Governors direction of NO SHARED EQUIPMENT, to achieve this whether you are playing singles or doubles players need to bring their OWN CAN OF BALLS, new used what ever you want.  When you serve, use your own can.  The rest of the players on court just send the balls back without touching them.  If we all comply with this it will take away the SHARED EQUIPMENT CLAUSE.  Continue with the social distancing and washing hands before and after play.



THE USTA HAS SUSPENDED ALL SANCTIONED TOURNAMENTS, LEAGUE PLAY, TEAM EVENTS, AND ORGANIZED INSTRUCTION OFFERINGS AND JUNIOR EVENTS AT THIS TIME, THEY WILL RE-VISIT MAY 3.



MOST OF ALL– wash wash wash your hands and don’t touch your face. Cough and sneeze in your arm, towel or Kleenex.



We are committed to cleaning the pro shop’s hard surfaces twice per day (prior to morning and evening play) and if deemed necessary in between.


Communal on-court water jugs have been pulled from the courts. Please bring your own individual hydration. We do have the water fountain inside and will have plastic cups available incase you forget. We would also recommend that you refrain from the communal ice machine.


The front door will be continuously open to minimize door knob contact.  We will also prop open bathroom doors.


We ensure that each staff member has the information they need to stay healthy or stay home if they are feeling unwell.


We will continue to rely on SCDHEC and the CDC for information on moving forward.  Please help us keep Riverside safe and healthy by staying home if you are sick, have been exposed to someone sick with COVID-19, have had a fever within 48 hours, or if you have recently traveled out of the country or to an affected area.


What can you do to assist in our effort?

1. We urge you to please stay home if you are feeling sick, ill or even slightly off.

2. Refrain from shaking hands at the end of each match play. Choose to lightly taps racquets, simply wave, or extend a smiling nod.

3. Refrain from high 5-ing with your partner to celebrate an amazing winning shot.

4. Please refrain from touching your face when sweating. We recommend bringing a towel from home.

5. Wash your hands before and right after play.

6. Use social distancing when gathering for USTA matches and match play.


Lets all use common sense in the up coming weeks. We want everyone to stay healthy and continue his or her active lifestyles through the game of tennis that we love. We have an amazing group of like minded members who care for each other’s well being.  Lets continue to be strong, support each other and always be here for each other. 



Thank you for your support in this matter and for your continued support of our Riverside Tennis Club Family.
