Bringing Summer Fun to Your Own Backyard.
May 19, 2020
Dear Oakhurst Youth Tennis Families,
This is our 12th year of doing the youth tennis program and it has been a great success over the years in keeping our kids up and active in the morning during the summers, utilizing the courts, developing skills, and for those interested, participating in tennis at WVHS.
With the current Covid-19 situation, our plan is to follow Gov. Pritzker’s phase 4 compliance and any other input from the Oakhurst Community Association.
At a minimum, it looks like the program could not start until July at the earliest and would be shortened.
This situation is very fluid and we would expect to know more in the next month to guide the decision on the season this summer.
I come from a strong safety culture in my career at Ecolab/Nalco Water. As many of you know, Jim Nielsen, teaches Biology/Anatomy at WVHS and used to coach tennis there before he had kids. We will look at safety precautions, social distancing, and may still elect to cancel the season as things unfold and more information becomes available.
Thanks for your patience as we all need patience at this challenging time.
Please join us at the Oakhurst neighborhood tennis courts in Aurora, IL.
