As of May 4th we have resumed our full-time tennis programs. We are currently accepting applications for our 2020 Summer Camp and 2020-2021 Full-Time School Year Program. Summer Camp will begin as planned on June 1st.
Maintaining a healthy and safe environment continues to be our top priority for our students and staff members. We are closely following all guidelines required by local governmental/health authorities for Covid 19 and have also developed our own On-Court and Housing Guidelines in order to keep our students and staff safe.
We are extremely fortunate that tennis is one of the safest sports you can play and that our community has had a minimal impact from Covid 19 compared to many other areas of the country. As of 5/17/20 Hilton Head Island has experienced 31 total cases since the beginning of March. We continue to monitor the progress of Covid 19 in our area and will adjust our guidelines as deemed appropriate. For up to date information on South Carolina, Beaufort County, and Hilton Head Island (zip codes 29928/29926) Covid 19 cases please visit https://www.scdhec.gov/infectious-diseases/viruses/coronavirus-disease-2019-covid-19 .
Summer Camp Protocol
