2021 Club Update

Your ATC Executive has been busy preparing for the 2021 season, and with the warm weather upon us, everyone is eager to open the courts for play. Still, we must be mindful of the Covid 19 Virus still in our community and the annual schedule the town maintains for the general re-opening of sport facilities. Net returns are scheduled for the week of April 12th.

REGISTRATION for 2021 is now open. Please go to the ATC website for on-line and hard copy registration options. Website at (http://atc.sport.blog)

The tennis club will be operating under the same “Rules and Recommended Behaviour” as last year, in compliance with the Provincial Covid-19 Restrictions in place. Please check the ATC website to review these safety recommendations.

ATC will NOT be organizing any programs, social events, lessons or activities at this time. Please play in your bubble. Due to Covid tracing and tracking requirements, no guests will be permitted to play on ATC courts.

The ATC Annual General Meeting is scheduled for April 21st at 7:00 PM. It will be conducted via ZOOM, and all members are invited to attend. A ZOOM connection Notification on the ATC website will follow.

Interesting in getting involved?? Volunteers are important to the health and well-being of our Tennis Club. We welcome your new ideas and energy. Please contact bill.adams@ci2i.ca or paulscissons@gmail.com to indicate your interest.

ATC facilities are vulnerable to health and by-law inspections and public complaints which could result in a total shutdown of the courts.

While the Covid risk fluctuates at times through different levels in our community, let’s always commit to keep our level of health and safety at the highest level.
