May 2020 Newsletter

Hello NPTA Members,

 

We hope everyone is well, healthy, and keeping active.

 

Our summer leagues are scheduled to begin 6/1, and though this start date seems we are still hopeful. New Providence is following guidelines on opening up courts and fields from both the governor’s office and the Westfield Regional Health Department. Until the NP Boro gives us the green light, we are restricted to singles play only.

 

  • Contact the league coordinators to register for teams so we can hit the ground running once are allowed. We will run the singles ladder, women’s doubles, men’s doubles, mixed doubles, and the round robins eventually.

 

  • The Walther Cup scheduled for 5/30 has been postponed and tentatively rescheduled to the weekend after Labor Day.

 

Current Guidelines for Court Use (as of 5/10/20)

The courts are open for singles playonly (2 people per court) for New Providence residents. The town is not taking any court reservations, so the courts are on a first come/first served basis.

 

Rules:

 

  • Restricted to New Providence Residents – ID required
  • 1 hour maximum – no lingering afterwards
  • Courts open 7:30am-Sundown
  • No bathrooms
  • No lights

 

Remember: Courts 5-8 are still scheduled for global repairs beginning June 1st.

 

We will be in touch with further information as it unfolds.  Until then, stay safe.

Hello tennis friends,

I hope this newsletter finds everyone in good health. We’re sure it comes as no surprise that NPTA is cancelling all Spring programming due to the coronavirus. With any luck, we will be able to resume our regular programs, including a new singles ladder, beginning with the summer session on 6/1/20. In the meantime, please feel free to begin getting in touch with the league coordinators to sign up for the summer programs.  The contact information for the coordinators is on the Website along with more information about our programs.

Reminder: New Providence is scheduled to begin construction on the back bank of courts so we will be restricted to 2 courts through 8/15. We will continue playing our leagues as always, but will extend the playing season.

Let us know if you have any questions, and we’ll be in touch next month.

Stay healthy,

The NPTA Board
