Nominations to fill executive vacancies resulted in Bill Adams being elected as President and Bruce Paulauskas being elected Vice-President.
Bill thanked Paul for his service to the club which saw significant improvements to the courts infrastructure and overall administration (electronic membership and banking options, renewed website, light timers, net and wind screen upgrades, and a safe and secure response to Covid). The ATC remains healthy and solvent due to Pauls leadership and the dedication of all executive members.
While the 2021 official tennis season starts May 1st, membership applications for 2021 have been suspended due to the Provincial Stay-at-home lockdown. It is expected that play will resume once provincial and local health authorities deem it safe to do so.

** Text from the Mississippi Mills Website **
“In accordance with (the Provincial Emergency and Stay-at-home order) , Municipal Facilities and Services will be closed to the public for four (4) weeks or until further notice effective 4:30 pm this afternoon (April 8th).”
“All outdoor recreation facilities are closed. This includes the Tennis Courts, Basketball Courts, Frisbee Golf, Skate Board Park and playground equipment. The new Covid-19 variant that has been linked to many local cases has been determined to spread more easily. Symptoms may also be more severe with an increased need for hospital care. We do not feel confident in our ability to ensure outdoor recreation facilities are sanitized sufficiently to ensure everyone’s safety. In addition these facilities can encourage gathering, which can also lead to spread.”
