“Quiet, please! Play”. These words - usually in this sequence – have a very familiar connotation to many tennis players and fans alike. These simple words signal the beginning of a much-anticipated tennis match hosted in some of the world’s finest tennis arenas. However, away from the arena they have, in some respect, taken on a new meaning – a ‘new normal’- that signals a return to play and a ‘mass’ return to play at that.

Considering this, our June issue will focus on returning to play by our tennis athletes and the implications and best practice measures of this anticipated return. Return to play after a time of considerable QUIET brought on by the global pandemic commonly referred to as COVID-19 is complex. The global sporting world has been hit hard and is still learning to navigate this process. The sport of tennis, recognized as an individual sport, has been at the forefront of much of the ‘return to play’ dialogue as a pioneering voice. In light of this, it is our distinct pleasure to feature some of these pioneering voices in our current issue:

1.)   Dr. Neeru Jayanthi, STMS Member Spotlight section,  starts us off with an overview of the pandemic and the implications for our tennis playing communities.

2.)   Lauren Quinn of the WTA gives us a behind the scenes look at some of the important health care services that are provided to our elite athletes during a typical day and week.

3.)   Strength and Conditioning specialist, Dean Hollingsworth, provides some innovative home training routines to help keep you fit and active while in lockdown.

4.)   Lastly, but certainly not least, our friends and colleagues at WTA have contributed two timeous segments that coincide with the running theme of this month’s issue: return to play & COVID-19 facts.

 Lastly, thank you for weathering the storm with us. We look forward to returning to the courts with you all soon. In the meantime, have a great month ahead, stay safe and happy reading.

Yours in tennis,
Deb Skinstad, MA (Ph.D. Sport Science candidate).
