I would like to commend everyone who has abided by the guidelines put forward by Tennis Nova Scotia in the last 8 weeks to keep our tennis community safe. I am pleased to announce that we can now get back to our regular tennis activities with the recent announcement of groups of 10 without social distancing. I would encourage everyone to continue to use good hygiene practices while taking part in tennis activities such as sanitizing and keeping your hands away from your face. Please see FAQ’s below which may help with any question you may have as either an individual or a member club. It looks like a great weekend so get out there and play some tennis !



  • How many players can be on a court at one time?

It is acceptable when running programs to get back to your regular ratio of coach to student. TNS recommends a 6-1 ratio but we understand that some programs may have to increase this.


  • Are we allowed to just use one can of balls ?

It is ok to just bring one can of balls now however please be accepting if your opponent would like to bring/use their own tennis balls and if so please refrain from picking their balls up on the court.


  • Do we have to use gloves while serving ?

Only if you want to, again please be respectful of each players wishes.


  • Will competitions be starting soon ?

Tennis Nova Scotia is looking into running a few types of modified events starting in mid July. The Rogers Rankings have been frozen across the Country so there are no ranking points currently. Having said that, we believe competition is still important and we will be offering modified event without ranking points soon.


  • Will there be a Gallagher Nova Scotia Open this year ?

We are hoping to bring you a modified version of the Provincial Championships this year. A decision will be made by early July if we are moving forward with a Gallagher Open for 2020.
