We understand that parents need to relax, but when your children are in and around the water, it's time to be alert! As a general rule of thumb, a parent should be within arm's reach of a young child at all times. This rule is true whether they're swimming in a pool, lake, ocean or even the bathtub. Parents of older children should stay close and keep eyes on their children at all times. Even ones who are strong swimmers need supervision because they're prone to trying out new tricks, flips and dives!
The best way to remain vigilant when your children are swimming is to put your phone away, and simply enjoy hanging out with each other! If other adults are present, you can take turns watching the pool, so everyone gets an equal chance to relax. Working together to protect your children is the best way to prevent an accident.

Dear Valued WWC Members,
- The large amount of ground sediment that entered the pool water and pool area has been pumped out.
- Upon analysis of the area the Structural Engineer authorized the draining of the pool.
- Once the pool was emptied there was evidence of hairline cracks on the pool base and up the walls in various areas of the pool. We had a lengthy meeting onsite last week with the Structural Engineer to review the area. He has asked for a thorough cleaning of the walls and floor to analyze the cracks, that will be completed in the next few days and then reviewed.
- We are concerned about the structural underlay of roof over the deep end. There was no power in this area for 3 days post flood therefore no systems were on in the area to draw out the moisture, so with the area being very humid the walls and roof were dripping moisture. Holes have been cut in the banquet floor and banquet kitchen floor above the pool roof to gain access for the Structural Engineer to review, we are awaiting the report.
LOCKER ROOMS and BASEMENT
- The restoration bidding process requested by the Insurer was completed and contract awarded last week resulting in immediate deployment of workers to restore the basement area and locker room areas.
- Boarding has commenced on the drywall and flooring in the basement area.

Simply use the foot pedal to refill your personal water bottles. That easy!
GARBAGE AND RECYCLING CONTAINERS ON COURTS 1 AND 3!
I have seen too many used overwraps, sharp metal lids, and used band aids lying around or on the benches and chairs over the last few weeks. This is a safety and health hazard for your fellow members. Please use the garbage and recycling containers provided for your convenience!
BALL MACHINE HEADING BACK TO SUMMER HOME!
The ball machine will be away for the summer but returning in late September ready for the start of the fall session!
PLAYING IN SAME TIME SLOT AS SCHEDULED COURT CLEANING? PLEASE SHIFT WHEN ASKED!
With increased activity, there is a tremendous amount of ball fuzz on the courts. Rather than block off all 3 courts and reduce members chances of booking a court we will be experimenting with booking only 1 court, cleaning 1 court at a time and bumping players to a freshly cleaned court, until all 3 courts are cleaned! Thanks for your understanding as we continue to try and provide a clean environment for your play!

If you are swimming in a home pool, body of water, or any swimming space that is not patrolled by lifeguards, it is best to have a buddy present! No matter how strong of a swimmer you are, you can never be too careful. It's best to be prepared for the worst case scenario!
