The past year has been brutal in so many ways for sports participation of all types. Tennis during COVID-19, however, has surfaced as one of the few acceptable activities that can be performed. Even indoors, the size of the court facilities allows for social distancing to take place and demand has been increasing.
In tennis, there are countless ways to improve, whether that be by taking some time to play with friends, semi-privates, privates, or group lessons. But, what are the differences and strengths of each different option?

The Ideal Social Distancing Sport
