There are a couple of changes to the Court Bookings system.  

 

Time slots can be booked up until 10.40pm on Saturdays, previously up to 5.00pm.

 

A separate issue. If a doubles foursome have played for 90 minutes, (booked in advance or as a walk-on), they can continue to play on a walk-on court for 45 minutes, not 90 minutes.  

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Go to the Court Bookings tab on the website to read all the rules.  If you don't read or don't understand the rules, no problem, the monitors will explain.

CHANGES IN BOOKING RULES TO DEAL WITH HIGH DEMAND

Because of the high demand for court time, we are modifying the court-booking rules with the following changes. The intent is to give more members a chance to get court time.
 
Booking can now be two days ahead, for one of the two days only.  So you could call, or come to the club, on Tuesday for example, to book a court for Wednesday or Thursday.
 
An additional bookable time slot has been added. You can now book 9:30 p.m.---10:40 p.m. Mon.-Fri.
 
No guests are allowed Mon.-Fri. 6:30 p.m.

-10:40.p.m., and Saturday and Sunday mornings, 8 a.m.--12:30.p.m.

ACCESS TO THE COURTS DURING NON-MONITORED HOURSHaving received approval from the City to access the courts for play during non-monitored hours, the combination lock will be put back on the gate to the courts. 
The combination for the lock is the same as it was last year. New members can get the combination from one of the monitors during monitored hours (Monitored hours are 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays; 5.00 p.m. to 9:45 p.m. on weekdays). 
 
The clubhouse will not be available for any reason during non-monitored hours. Players thus will not have access to the washrooms. Sorry. This is a condition imposed on us for the privilege of using the courts during non-monitored hours.   
 
The lock should be left on the fence beside the gate in the locked position when players are playing. Players last to leave the courts should remember to put the lock back on the gate. You need to change the combination away from the correct combination so that the lock will close.  
 
Hours for non-monitored play are as follows: Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m, and after 9:45 p.m. (As a courtesy to neighbors, do not start before 8 a.m.);  Saturday 1 p.m. to 10:40 p.m.; Sunday 1 p.m. to 4.30 p.m.
 
No reservations are required for non-monitored play (for monitored play, members need to call 416 699-2412 to make a reservation a day in advance; see the website or the previous Newsletter for details). Please observe normal rules for playing times during non-monitored play: a limit of 45 minutes if people are waiting.
 
Please bring hand sanitizer. You’re likely to need it. While we discourage touching common areas, it can’t always be avoided. You may need to touch the lock and the gate, for example. So, bring and use hand sanitizer for your own protection and to help protect others.
 
Rules for non-monitored play under pandemic guidelines are similar to those for monitored play:

  1. Maintain physical distancing; keep two metres away from other players at all times; avoid touching common areas (the net, fences, poles, gates, etc.); regularly clean or sanitize hands, and avoid touching your face.

  2. Singles play only.

  3. Every player must bring his or her own balls, and these should be clearly marked. You serve with your balls; your opponent serves with his or her own balls.

  4. Do not handle balls of other players. Kick the ball or use your racquet---not your hand---to direct the balls of other players back to them.

  5. Do not congregate; do not loiter around the courts after play.

  6. Take special care when entering and exiting courts to ensure social distancing.

  7. When changing sides, cross at opposite ends of the net. Do not shake hands.

Members may bring a guest. The fee is $5. We trust that our members (who are universally honest and upright) will pay that fee on behalf of guests to a monitor at earliest convenience.
 
Thanks for your patience and understanding.
