In this Issue…
  • New City Guidelines for Tennis and Pickleball
  • Annual General Meeting
  • Closing of the Courts
  • Resurfacing of the Courts
New City of Ottawa Guide Lines for Pickleball and Tennis:
  • We have been informed that the recent restriction by the City of Ottawa to Singles Play Only applies to both outdoor and indoor games. Doubles tennis and doubles pickleball are prohibited at all times in the City of Ottawa right now. There are no exceptions to this rule (not for spouses, not for members of the same household or social bubble, and not for parent and child). The rule applies to both indoor and outdoor play.
  • City By-Law officers will be ticketing those who do not comply with the restrictions.
Annual General Meeting (AGM):
  • The AGM for 2020 has been delayed due to the new restrictions on indoor capacity limits for Ottawa that have been placed by the Ontario government for next 28 days
  • If the restrictions aren’t lifted before the end of the year the board will look into holding the meeting virtually
  • We will be sending out the club reports to all members the first week of November
Closing of the Club
  • The club will remain open as long as the weather permits
Resurfacing of the Courts:
  • Resurfacing is unlikely to happen this year as the weather has turned too cold and other jobs have kept the contractor from starting. It is expected that the work will be done early next spring. The work will involve filling cracks on the four tennis courts and repainting, as opposed to a complete rebuild. We plan to fill the cracks on the pickleball court ourselves in the spring.

  • Court re-surfacing update
  • Update on access to the club house
  • New:  Reduced memberships for the rest of the season!
Court Resurfacing September 2020.
  • The court resurfacing is scheduled for early September. We will be sending the exact dates when the contractor advises us.
  • We will try to minimize the impact on court usage as much as possible.
  • The resurfacing will take approximately 7 to 10 days and is weather dependent.
Access to the Club House
  • We still don’t have access to the clubhouse and will keep you updated as we receive information from the city.
  • This will most likely impact when we hold the AGM this year similar to when the tornado affected it two years ago.
  • The lights are automatically turned on at 8:00 pm every night, we will have the  city change the time as we move into the fall.
Reduced memberships!
  • All membership fees will be reduced for the remainder of the season. Be sure to tell your friends!
