We believe it is important for you to understand and acknowledge the following. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and individuals with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. By having you or your child participate in the activities of the Reading Recreation Commission, you and your child are hereby acknowledging and assuming all risks related to exposure to COIVD-19, including the risk that your or your child will become a carrier of COVID-19 and expose others as a result.

*IMPORTANT:
No in person registration will be accepted at this time. All participants must pre-register. This will require a USTA account. 

If you do not have a USTA account, it will ask you to create one.  The parent should register and add any children 12 & under to the account.
If your child is 13 years or older and has an account, they should use their child's login to register. If your child is 13 & older and does not have an account, you must create on for your child.
There is no fee to do so.
If you need assistance with creating a USTA account, call 800.990.8782 option 1 English, option 2 Spanish
