VTA TENNIS UPDATE – MESSAGE FROM THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS – JULY 11, 2020
The Vernon Tennis Association will NOT be operating ANY of its programs for the 2020 season. Also, no membership applications will be accepted for 2020. The exceptional circumstances surrounding COVID-19, including but not limited to the complexities of court reservations and safety measures, resulted in this decision by the VTA Board.
Public courts remain open, and we encourage those who are healthy and feel comfortable playing, to get outside and enjoy the game of tennis. Of course, please adhere to all current guidelines regarding physical distancing and staying safe while enjoying this great sport.
Thank you for your understanding.
We hope that 2021 allows for a return to a full slate of tennis programs and activities.
The Vernon Tennis Association (VTA) was started in October 2008 to bring together all tennis players of all skill levels within the Vernon area and to offer both competitive and social programs that are not being offered to players currently.
Presently the VTA operates seasonal adult and children’s programs from April to September in “partnership” with Greater Vernon Parks, Recreation and Culture.
