World TeamTennis announced its revised 2020 schedule this week ahead of its 45th season, which will be played in the entirety at The Greenbrier “America’s Resort” in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. This will be the first major professional tennis league to resume operations since the worldwide outbreak of COVID-19.
66 total matches will be contested over 22 days from July 12 – Aug. 2 between all WTT nine teams, including the Orlando Storm. The revised 2020 season schedule will include at least three matches per day at The Greenbrier’s 2,500-seat outdoor stadium. In accordance with state health guidelines, WTT will allow up to 500 fans (20% capacity) to attend its outdoor matches. An indoor court, with a fan capacity of 250, will be used in case of inclement weather.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, safety guidelines have been put into place by World TeamTennis with the guidance of local and state government officials in West Virginia and an adherence to all health and safety protocols set forth by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Every fan in attendance will be required to pass a temperature check before entering the grounds. All fans will be checked a second time before entering the outdoor stadium or indoor court for any matches and will be denied entry should they fail the temperature check.
The 63-match regular season will be showcased from July 12-30. The WTT Playoffs will follow with two semifinal matches on Aug. 1 and the WTT final on Aug. 2.
