Hello Tennis Members,
Like many of you, I am anxiously awaiting the opportunity to return to a tennis court. With the long weekend around the corner, it seems prudent to update members on the status of the tennis program at ZZYC.
On March 30, 2020, under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act, the Province of Ontario announced the closure of all outdoor recreational amenities in the Province (Regulation 104/20). This order includes the closure of both public and private tennis courts. The order can be extended beyond the original revocation date of May 19, 2020. On May 12, 2020, the Ontario state of emergency was extended to June 2, 2020, with no change to the restrictions on tennis facilities.
As such, the tennis courts at ZZYC will remain closed until further notice.
We will monitor the restriction on outdoor recreational facilities. We aim to open the tennis courts to members as expediently as possible while adhering to regulatory requirements and infection control standards provided by public health officials in the Province of Ontario. The status of tennis lessons, tournaments and weekly round robins is as yet unknown.
I will advise members by email and post information on the website as it becomes available.
I thank you for your patience in these challenging times and wish you all good health.
Dear ZZYC Members,
Your Board of Directors
