Our Covid Response
Sportsmen’s has been hard at work since March to safely re-open our doors. We’ve successfully continued to run our summer camp, tournament training tennis and even our virtual Summer Learning Project. Courts are open for singles & doubles tennis! In the meantime, we’ve been busy delivering vital programs to kids and adults in our community.
Here’s what we’ve been up to:
COVID Testing and Food Drive: in partnership with Brigham & Women’s Hospital, Sportsmen’s hosted a highly successful week-long drive in its parking lot. Local residents were tested for the virus and given 25-lb boxes of fresh produce. Food insecurity screenings identified residents that were eligible for 8 additional weeks of produce delivery to their homes. Click here to see local news coverage.
Summer Camp and Tournament Training: our tennis programs for kids continued in person throughout the summer with social distancing and health protocols in place.
School To Sportsmen’s: our Learning Center staff has continued to provide virtual academic and enrichment support to students daily from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Adult Tennis: we welcomed back adults for outdoor play in Phase 1 and continued to re-open the club for USTA summer leagues and indoor tennis.
Daily Fitness Classes: Coaches offered online fitness and meditation classes daily while the club was temporarily closed.
Special COVID-19 Zoom Panel: Our Center for Community Wellness hosted online interactive forums to discuss the virus and its impact on our community. Panelists included world-class infectious disease experts from Brigham & Women’s Hospital and members of the Sportsmen’s camp, tennis and Learning Center staffs.
USTA Reopening: Our Executive Director, Toni Wiley, sits on three of the USTA Committees planning for a safe return to fall tennis. Stay tuned for more info. We look forward to seeing you!
