Dear Central Tennis Club Members,

 

We have received a permit from the City of Toronto to reopen the club under a set of restrictions and guidelines, like anything else around us in this pandemic. Please rest assured that the Executive Team is working diligently together on reopening the club soon, but more importantly reopening it safely, once all important measures are in place. We will be in touch in the coming few days to provide you with further updates.

 

In the meantime, we are looking to hire court monitors to help us implement the City guidelines, including but not limited to the mandatory contact tracing. Please find attached a job description and pass it along to anyone interested in your household. All applicants must submit their application to info@centraltennisclub.com no later than May 29 and those selected for a phone/video interview will be contacted shortly after.

 

Stay tuned for more updates. Stay healthy and safe!

Your Executive Team at Central Tennis Club

Dear Central Tennis Club Members,

 

We are excited about last week’s news from the Government of Ontario, announcing that all indoor and outdoor tennis facilities may reopen as of Tuesday, May 19. Getting the Province’s blessing is the first important step.

 

However, please remember that Central Tennis Club operates under a City of Toronto permit and must receive the go-ahead from the City before we can get members back on court. There is also a lot of work to be done to safely set up the club. Working under conditions of social distancing may slow down set-up slightly. Rest assured we will share information and update you as soon as we have final details and permission from the City, and we are able to set up.

 

We are all looking forward to getting back on court!

 

Sincerely,

 

Your Executive Team at Central Tennis Club

Dear Central Tennis Club Members,

As a follow-up to our March 22 communication, the City of Toronto has since confirmed that all community tennis clubs must remain closed until June 30 to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
 
All club facilities, clubhouses, and courts must remain closed. As a result, please note the following:

  • The TLTL and ICTA Leagues – postponed;

  • The Daytime and Wednesday Night House Leagues – postponed;

  • The Tennis Toronto Junior League – cancelled for the Spring session;

  • The Junior Spring Clinics – cancelled; we will be in communication with the parents about how compensation will be handled.

 

We appreciate your understanding in these difficult times. We will keep you informed of any developments by email and on our COVID-19 webpage, www.centraltennisclub.com/covid-19.
 
Stay healthy and safe!
 
Sincerely,

 

Your Executive Team at Central Tennis Club

Dear Central Tennis Club Members,

We hope this message finds you and your families in good health. We are all facing unprecedented times with the COVID-19 pandemic and our thoughts are with you all and with everyone bravely fighting this outbreak, particularly those who are at the front lines every day providing essential services to their communities.

The Executive Team at Central Tennis Club has been closely monitoring the situation and following guidelines and communications issued by Canadian tennis organizations, as well as the City of Toronto and the provincial and federal governments. Please rest assured that the health and safety of our club members remain at the top of our concerns, particularly as we deal with this crisis. We know that many of you are wondering when will the 2020 tennis season begin at the club, given the current circumstances.

We can only open and operate the club through an annual permit from the City of Toronto. Due to the seriousness of the situation, the City of Toronto has advised that they have not yet issued permits to any tennis clubs, and for now, the first effective day of the 2020 permit will not be April 1. We had initially planned to have a "work party" on April 4 to put up the nets and screens, and have the courts and clubhouse ready for you, but this will be rescheduled as we get updated information.

Central Tennis Club (courts and clubhouse) remain closed until we have a permit from the City of Toronto and until we deem it safe to reopen it.

We truly appreciate your understanding and promise to keep you updated every two weeks, as we closely follow this ever-evolving situation. Please stay tuned for future email communications on the subject, which will also be posted on our website on a page dedicated to how the COVID-19 pandemic affects Central Tennis Club, www.centraltennisclub.com/covid-19.

Most importantly, please stay healthy and safe!

Sincerely,

Your Executive Team at Central Tennis Club
