Statement from The RRTA Board of Directors RE: Leagues Suspended due to COVID-19
Statement from the RRTA Board of Directors:
As a board, we have been closely monitoring the COVID19 developments and closures as the situation develops. USTA, USTA Texas and Capital Area Tennis Association (CATA) have suspended all league play, tournaments and other events until April 20th to ensure social distancing practices are carried out. While RRTA is not affiliated with USTA, many of our members are and the board often defers to their policies and guidelines when managing our own league play.
It is out of an abundance of caution that the board will suspend all league play until April 20th to be consistent with the policies of USTA, USTA Texas and CATA.
Yesterday, President Trump updated guidance to cancel all events (private and public) with 10+ people so we felt it was important to make this announcement as quickly as possible. See CDC Guidance for Events and Gatherings: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/large-events/index.html
This suspension also affects the registration period for our Annual Doubles Only Tournament scheduled for April 25-26 and we would rather postpone the tournament at this time than go through the registration process not knowing for sure if we will be able to host the tournament.
At this time there will be no refunds for the season, as we intend to treat this as we would a rain-out and hopefully finish the season at a later date.
Thank you for your understanding, we will continue to monitor the situation and will get back to league play as soon as we think it is safe for everyone to do so. Please stay safe and vigilant to contain the virus based on local, state and national health providers’ recommendations.
We hope to see everyone on the courts very soon!
