Hi Fellow Members, 

We were informed by the City on April 6th, 2020 that all parks and recreational facilities such as our Tennis and Pickleball courts are closed till June 30th, 2020. Please find attached the directive in <PDF format> with this e-mail. The directive also mentions that the date may change in the future and the City of Ottawa will inform us on an ongoing basis. We will strive to keep all of you up to date as things progress during the coming weeks and months with the city's decision. If the the date of June 30th were to hold these would be the following impacts: 
  • The club would not  have the Tennis and Pickleball nets up until the first week of July and there would be no access to the courts till this time. 
  • The PTI after school program would be cancelled for 2020. 
  • The April 25th registration date would be moved to the first Saturday in July. 
  • Membership fees for all categories would be reduced by 15%.
  • We will strive to make online registration easier with payments by e-transfer or via mail with the club providing receipts electronically. 
We as a club are hopeful that the June date may change but we all need to be vigilante to defeat this terrible disease and as a club we will follow the guidance of the City of Ottawa.
 
Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Jim Dorrance
Past-president
