Reopening Guidelines

REOPENING GUIDELINES FOR THE ALDERSHOT TENNIS CLUB

COVID-19 Protocol – Phase 3

Thanks to the effort of a number of volunteers the club will open for ADULT members tomorrow, June 1st. Due to special requirements no JUNIORS are allowed to play at this time. The club is finalizing guidelines for junior members, and will provide an update as soon as possible.

The club will be sending guidelines to provide a safe return by following protocols established by Premier Ford, City of Burlington, Tennis Canada and OTA (Stage 3). We ask all members to ensure they review and understand these guidelines prior to play and do their part in keeping the ATC safe.

The guidelines will be strictly enforced and must be adhered to by all members to ensure continued play at the Club during this time. Membership privileges could be removed if guidelines are not followed.

Please review the following guidelines prior to playing at the club.
