With increased activity, there is a tremendous amount of ball fuzz on the courts. Rather than block off all 3 courts and reduce our 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! Thank you for your cooperation as we continue to try and provide a clean environment for your play!

MEMBER BOOKING: CAN I BOOK 2 TIMES IN ONE DAY? THE ANSWER IS YES! HERE'S HOW!

Now that tennis courts are always prime time, the procedure to book a 2nd slot in a day is:
-Book the first slot online with your account up to 3 days in advance
-Second Booking not in advance -On the day (same day) you want to play in a second slot, call or email the Front Desk and they will manually add you on that same day!
-Remember to declare who your partner(s) is/are for Covid tracking purposes
-All other booking rules still apply. That's it! Enjoy your matches!

REMINDERS AND TESTING SOME POLICY ADJUSTMENTS

All in the interest of opening up additional member booking opportunities, the Tennis department will be experimenting with different ways to achieve that goal. Thanks for your patience as we play around with some of the scheduling over the course of the next few months.

TENNIS PROTOCOLS AND PROCEDURES

-Book a court online or by calling the Front Desk at 204-452-3311.
-There are absolutely no drop-ins or walk ups at this time.⎯ Singles, and Doubles play is allowed at this time.
-Courts are prime time all day every day to allow more members access to the courts.
-Member bookings: up to 3 days in advance for 1 session/day! (60 minutes singles or 90 minutes doubles)
-Member bookings: Playing twice on the same day is allowed if there is court availability. This second booking can only be reserved by contacting the Front Desk on the same day you are already playing. This 2nd booking will be in a different color so it is clear that it was not booked in advance.
-Playing in Leagues or taking part in a clinic (max 6 players/court) does not effect your member booking.
-Taking a lesson counts as an advanced member booking.
-Names on the booking must be accurate in case it is needed for Covid-19 contact tracing.
-Masks are mandatory! No gaping. mask must cover nose and mouth unless drinking!
-All other booking rules still apply.

JUNIOR & FAMILY ZOOM CLASSES

What are our Classes? Here is a summary of what activities we will be doing at our Zoom events!

CRAFTY CORNER

This class is filled with different craft projects that will use minimal or basic craft supplies. Don’t have a supply? No problem! I am sure we have a modification idea for you! This class is suitable for all ages. Parental help may be needed depending on age and crafting experience.

PAINT WITH JESSICA

This class will explore art using different types of paint, tools and styles of paintings. Classes are between level 1 - 4 with 1 being beginner and 4 being the most challenging painting projects!

MAKERS

These classes will have a wide variety of different DIY projects with our more experienced crafters who want to adventure beyond the construction paper crafting! Some of these projects will be challenging but is suitable for all ages including teens and adults! Parental help may be needed for this class depending on age and crafting experience.

VIRTUAL ART PARTY

We are all missing our members over this last year, but I have also learned how lucky we are that technology is able to still bring us together. 2020 and 2021 had me spending a lot of time connecting with all of you while creating some amazing projects, playing games and having virtual celebrations. It has been so much fun thus far! We have made new friends at class and also got to invite some of our best friends to join us over BFF Week! Don’t let another occasion just go by or get pushed back to when things are “back to normal;” connect with more of your friends and family with a Virtual Party!

Contact Jessica Barsky to discuss your event!
