Tennis in Now Open with Certain RULES

June 5, 2021, Doubles tennis is now allowed in Ottawa!

After consultation with the City of Ottawa’s legal department, By-Law and Ottawa Public Health, the decision was made to allow doubles tennis play with the caveats that players maintain 2m distancing at all times. 

Ottawa Public Health also encourages everyone to keep activities limited to people within your household.

May 20, 2021, the Province of Ontario announced a Roadmap to Reopen Reopening Ontario |, a three-step plan to safely and cautiously reopen the province and gradually lift public health measures. The plan is based on the provincewide vaccination rate and improvements in key public health and health care indicators. Until we move to Step 1 of the roadmap, we must all continue to follow the rules and public health measures under the provincewide emergency brake
