The cabinet has promulgated strict measures in the fight against the coronavirus. The number of infections and hospitalizations is rising again, the pressure on care is increasing. In order to limit the number of contacts as much as possible and to stop the spread of the virus, the Netherlands is going into a lockdown again.
These are hard measures that hit society and also the sport hard. But it is necessary, because safety and health are paramount and only together we can get the virus under control.
What does this mean for tennis and padel?
- Adults from the age of 18 are allowed to play tennis and padel with 4 persons, only outside. So only singles.
- Youth up to 17 years old can play and train in a group, only outside.

- Only come to Amstelpark when you have a lesson, match or court reservation
- Leave Amstelpark as quickly as possible after you lesson or match
- No spectators (friends/family) allowed at lessons, matches or free play. This also means that parents are not allowed to watch their children's tennis lessons or matches. Please drop your child off and leave Amstelpark immediately after.

Sports are exempt from the rules that state a maximum capacity of 30 people indoors and 40 people outdoors. This is the reason we are able to continue to provide lessons and play matches. It remains incredibly important to continue to abide by the well-known basic rules:
- Feeling sick or showing symptoms? Stay home and get tested
- Keep a safe 1.5 meters distance from others at all times
- Wash you hands regularly
- Avoid busy places as much as possible
