Tennis

Welcome families and friends of the YMCA of Kanawha Valley.  We are pleased to announce the start of the YMCA tennis program on Monday, June 8.  To ensure the safety of our participants and staff, the YMCA will utilize a phase by phase restart to the tennis program and limit activity in Phase 1 to private lessons.  To gain access to the tennis portion of the facility, participants will be asked to wait at the facility entrance doors.  Text your instructor when you arrive, and he/she will meet you at the door.  Upon entering the facility, you will be asked a series of questions related to the COVID systems, have your temperature taken, and asked to sanitize your hands.  If your temperature is 100.4, you will be denied access to the facility.  Participants will be asked to show up for their lessons no earlier than 10 minutes prior to the start.  The lobby, upstairs balcony, water cooler and locker rooms will not be available for use.  Participants will be able to refill their water containers at the water filling station.   Once your lesson has concluded, you will be required to exit the area so instructors can sanitize courts for their next lesson.

Additional Information

  • No payments will be collected at the front desk.
  • All fees will be paid on court or billed to your account at the time of service.
  • Participants must bring their own racquets.
  • Instructors will be responsible for picking up their own balls.

 

Thank you for your patience and continued support during these conflicted time.
