After 4 weeks of Executive meetings and negotiations with the Town, we are happy to report that we have received permission to reopen our courts within certain limitations. We thank all members for your patience and understanding as the GTC begins its 2nd season under Covid 19 Protocols.
Before you read further, please study the Covid Protocols before renewing your membership and stepping on the courts. The Protocols set by the Club are mandatory for all members and must be read and followed.
Cancellation of Opening Day
To abide by the Club’s Covid 19 Protocols and social distancing guidelines, the GTC will not be having an official opening day for memberships.
Applications are now available for the 2021 Season.
For 2021, we ask that our members continue to use one of the contactless methods to register:
Contactless Method 1: An updated 2021 Application pdf form is available under the Membership Tab (Print/Email Form Button).
Contactless Method 2: You can register using our online form which you can find on the Membership Page (Online Form Button).
We will still be accepting applications and cheque payments via mail. Our mailing address is located on the bottom of the application. Please allow additional processing time if you are mailing your membership.
2021 Membership Fees
This year’s fees are:
Junior Membership (Age 17 and Under) - $60
Adult Membership (Age 18 - 64) - $145
Senior Membership (Age 65-79) - $130
Octogenarian Membership (Age 80+) - $0
Family Membership (1-2 adults + 1-3 kids) - $ 330
2021 Membership Fee Payment
Preferred Method for the 2021 season: To keep everything contactless, we ask that you send your fees via e-transfer to the Grimsby Tennis Club. This will be the safest payment method under the current circumstances.
We will also accept cheque payments that can be sent along with the application by mail. Please note your membership will not be processed until your application and payment are received by the Club.
Ball Machine rental is available for 2021 for a non-refundable $50 annual fee.
Guests are not permitted at this time. All other programming will be subject to Covid Protocols and its availability will be communicated to the membership through future emails.
Please check with our Club Pro, Joel Cruz (email@example.com) regarding the availability of tennis lessons.
Once your membership has been processed...
Once your application has been received and payment has been confirmed, key pick up instructions and gigasport status confirmation will be sent to you so that you can start booking the courts. Please ensure that your email address is written correctly as this will ensure receipt of this information.
The club gates will be re-keyed this year. Remember to return your 2020 key when you pick up this season’s key.
Keys will be available for pick up on (dates to be confirmed):
Saturday and Sundays from 11 am – 1 pm
Wednesdays from 6 – 8 pm
Have a safe and healthy season!
Club Operations Temporarily Suspended
With the extended stay-at-home order, Ontario is under further restrictions, which affect outdoor activities including tennis.
The Grimsby Tennis Club was notified by the Town to suspend operations immediately in accordance with the new COVID safety measures announced by Premier Doug Ford. The suspension is expected to continue until May 20th.
This is unfortunate news for tennis, but we understand the need to keep everyone safe as the number of COVID cases continues to grow day by day in the province.
You may continue to submit your application forms and payment, as we will continue to process registrations for the duration of the stay-at-home order. New keys will be distributed to members once the club is safe to reopen.
Anyone who has already submitted their application and payment will be registered for the 2021 season, and are one step closer to getting on the court once we are able to reopen. We are hopeful there will still be lots of time to play tennis during the upcoming season.
We will communicate more information as we receive it. Until then, please stay safe with your loved ones.
