Court Entrance and Exit Protocol

·         Participants must wait to enter courts until the start time of their class - no entering courts early. Do not enter the court until the participants of the previous class have left.

·         DO NOT wait/gather - if you arrive early, please do not wait/gather at the entrance of the court

·         Ensure to keep a 2-meter distance from others at all times

·         MASKS are MANDATORY when not physically playing tennis. Masks must be worn upon entering the court and kept on until active play. As soon as you are finished the class and exit the court to get ready to leave you must put on your mask and the mask must remain on until you are off the court. If participants do not have a mask, one will be provided.

-       Due to restrictions on number of students on court the coaching staff may admit students on first come first serve basis even if they are registered. We have opened up the system to register students more than the capacity, as our past experience suggest that not all students attend sessions every week. To ensure that your child gains admission into the court please attend the classes ahead of the scheduled time and line-up your child socially distanced in an orderly manner.​
