DIMITAR Tennis Academy update - Corona Virus Response

Dear Parents and Players,

We wanted to keep everyone informed of what we are doing at DIMITAR Tennis Academy to make sure our students are safe during these uncertain times. As an Academy, we are consistently sanitizing all of our equipment (Demo racquets, ball carts, ball mowers, ball tubes, balls, benches, cones, etc) door handles, WC cards, pens, seating areas and all surfaces on and off the courts. In addition , there's hand sanitizing lotions on the courts and in the Pro Shop.


We wanted to share Info with you regarding the COVID-19.

As you know the COVID-19 is affecting many people in our area.

We are so glad that we are an outdoor facility and get to play tennis in the fresh air. We also love that tennis is not a contact sport which allows us to still practice and participate without being restricted in door and in close spaces to others.

Rules to keep our tennis community safe and healthy:
- No high fives
- No hand shakes (no physical contact at this time)
- Only the Coaching Staff will handle/touch the tennis balls (players will use the sanitized ball mowers or the ball tubes or nothing at all) for ball pick up
- Anyone showing symptoms of cold, flu or COVID-19 are asked to stay home, until better and cleared by their doctor
- All players please wash hands before coming on court
- Please use our Hand Sanitizers on the courts or in the Pro Shop, you can also bring your own and sanitize your racquets grip before and after practice or lesson
- Should Coaching Staff ask you to wash your hands during practice or lesson, please comply with their request.
- Our bathroom surface will continue to be cleaned regularly (HILTON protocol in place)

Some other tips to stay healthy during this time are below:
- Stay hydrated Please bring water from home in marked containers. ALL of our water dispersers will be closed and covered .
- Take your Vitamins
- Eat foods reach in Vitamin C (citrus), probiotic food (yoghurt), Vitamin B12 (fish, eggs) and Vitamin D3 (salmon, mushrooms)
- Sleep enough hours per night
- STAY ACTIVE – activity enhances immune function by increasing white blood cell count

We are doing our very best to stay informed and to keep our families healthy and safe. Check our website and our page for updates . We will contact you again should circumstances change.

Starting Monday till April 3th. we will have our training as:
DIMITAR Tennis Academy:

Nationals Group from 9:00pm to 12:00pm and the Sectionals Group from 1:00pm to 4:00pm, both Monday through Friday. The space is very limited for both groups.

The Santa Barbara School of Tennis:
Sectional Group from 3:30pm to 5:30pm on Tuesday / Thursday and from 2:00pm to 4:00pm on Saturday.
Future Stars Group from 3:30pm to 5:00pm on Monday / Friday and from 2:00pm to 4:00pm on Saturday.
PeeWee Group from 4:00pm to 5:00pm on Wednesday and from 11:00am to 12:00 on Saturday.

Please let me know if your child is not feeling comfortable into the group training, we can defiantly accommodate them with the Private Lessons, if you have any time and day requests.

Wishing you health and happiness! See you on court!

Warmest Regards,



Enjoy the Holidays everyone!!!
