At Summer Smash Tennis, the safety of our students, families, and coaches is always our first priority. We understand that many students and parents may have concerns about protocols and measures taken to mitigate risk, especially in indoor settings.

In developing a COVID-19 action plan, Summer Smash is actively monitoring and following the guidance of public health agencies across Canada. These include the Public Health Agency of Canada and WorkSafe BC, as well as guidelines issued by Tennis Canada. This may result in the decision to cancel programs in the interests of ensuring safety.
