ATTENTION MEMBERS & PROSPECTIVE NEW MEMBERS!

The Grimsby Tennis Club will move to Stage 3 COVID Protocol effective Monday, August 3, 2020. The following guidelines have been developed in consultation with the Ontario Tennis Association and meet the requirements mandated by the provincial government.

THE GTC EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE ASKS YOU TO ADHERE TO THE FOLLOWING:

  1. Please do not play if you have flu-like symptoms or have travelled outside of Canada in the last 14 days

  2. Continue maintaining 2 metres social distance on and off the courts at all times

  3. No Guests are permitted. We want to limit club access to known members

  4. Sharing of balls is permitted in accordance with OTA Guidelines - please use hand sanitizer before, during and after play. Avoid touching your face

  5. Continue using the online booking system. This is important for contact tracing

  6. Doubles Leagues are BACK!

    • Ladies Night - Mondays from 6 pm to 9 pm

    • Men’s Night – Tuesdays from 6 pm to 9 pm

    • Mixed Doubles – Thursdays from 7 pm to 9 pm (right after the U18 program finishes).

    • ATTENTION New Members! There is a one hour league dedicated for new members from 6 pm to 7 pm on Mondays and Tuesdays. The “New Member” hour is ideally suited for newer members wishing to meet new people to play with, or are unsure of their level and want to discover how they might fit into league play. More experienced players, and those who have been members at the club longer, are encouraged to play with new members now and again, as this builds rapport and overall skill level in the Club. At 7pm the two hour long league night for more experienced players begins.

  7. ​Members can remain as spectators as long as they are practicing social distancing. There are marked spots for seating on the bleachers, chairs and benches

  8. Continue to lock the outside gate after entering and when leaving; The inner gate can be left unlatched so that it can be opened with your foot or racquet

  9. Washrooms will be open, but the Clubhouse continues to remain closed
