Quebec tennis federation calls out latest government directives

According to Tennis Québec Deputy Executive Director Andréanne Martin, if the goal is to get Quebecer’s moving during the break, then tennis should be considered one of the top options. The sport is universal, she explained, it doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or an expert.
“We do not agree with this decision because we really consider that tennis is a safe sport, I would say one of the safest sports,” Martin said.
She told The Record in an interview that clubs all over the province have put a lot of money and time into making sure their facilities meet Quebec’s health and safety measures. Martin said she hasn’t received a viable answer yet as to why tennis was left out.
