COVID-19 Alert - All current and prospective members

please read.

 

ATTENTION MEMBERS & PROSPECTIVE NEW MEMBERS!

We have been working hard alongside the Town of Grimsby who has granted us approval to reopen with a number of restrictions under the Phase 1 COVID-19 Guidelines and ensure we are abiding to the social distancing procedures established by Premier Ford. The Club is open as of Saturday, May 30th for Court Bookings.
 

Please read the Reopening Guidelines thoroughly to ensure you understand the restrictions before deciding if you are going to register.


More information will be shared with members as it becomes available. We appreciate your patience as we try and navigate these unprecedented times.

Thank you to all members for your patience and understanding as the GTC begins its
season under new COVID-19 protocols set out by the Club’s Executive and approved
by the Town of Grimsby. Take the time to study and familiarize yourself with these
policies before you renew your membership and step on the courts. The COVID-19
protocols set by the Club are mandatory for all members and must be followed.

 

The Town of Grimsby reserves the right to withdraw their approval (and lock the
gates) if any of our membership do not follow all the guidelines in our detailed
plan.  
Please be respectful to others and follow the protocols set in place by the
Executive Team. We all want to be able to enjoy some tennis!


On behalf of the GTC Board of Directors, we truly appreciate your support.
