BNWT has implemented several measures to ensure physical distancing between groups. Groups must maintain 6ft of physical distancing while on court and in the facility.
Follow the directional arrows
throughout the facility.
ARRIVE READY TO PLAY
Arrive ready to play, as no change rooms will be available. You must wait in your vehicle until 5 minutes prior to the start of your court time.
Groups scheduled on courts 3 or 4 are asked to enter the court as a unit at the end of a rally in order to minimize the disruption to play on middle courts.
Guests must register with the desk staff prior to their court time and agree to our COVID-19 waiver. Members are asked to inform their guests to call the Club ahead of the booking to get familiarized with new policies and procedures.
All payments to be on account, debit, or credit card. There will be no cash on the premises this season. All members must have a credit card on file.
LABEL YOUR BELONGINGS
Ensure all of your belongings are properly labelled. Anything left behind without a label will be discarded. BNWT is not responsible for the replacement of any belonging left behind.
Only staff will be permitted to touch equipment for lessons, including balls, ball hoppers, cones, mini-nets, etc. Players will be asked to use their racquet to pick-up balls during play. Equipment will be regularly sanitized.
BNWT reserves the right to refuse entry to anyone it feels presents a health risk or refuses to abide by our COVID-19 policies and procedures.
Due to shutdowns within the last two seasons, BNWT has made the difficult decision to not offer any future credit for memberships in the event of a third season affected by forced Club closures, beyond our control.
Masks or face coverings are mandatory inside the clubhouse and through transitional areas. You may remove your mask once you are on your designated court and ready to play.
STAGGERED START TIMES
Courts 1 through 4 will be staggered by 15 minutes to allow for distancing between groups. Group play and lessons on more than one court will also have staggered start times.
5 MINUTE EXIT
There will be an indicator on each court to notify you when it is your exit time. Your group will have 5 minutes to exit the facility. We kindly ask for the cooperation from all our members with this protocol.
Court fees will be $40 and $48 per 1.5 hours. This fee is divisible by the number of people on the court.
Each court will have an indicator that instructs your group when it's time to exit the facility. You will have 5 minutes to pack up and depart.
NO CHANGE ROOMS
Keep all your belongings (coat, boots, etc.) at the hook station matching your court number in the main room of the clubhouse, as change rooms will be closed. Hook stations will be sanitized after each group.
Being late for your court time is extremely discouraged, as it affects the flow of individuals through the Clubhouse. If you are late, you are asked to call the club from the parking lot when you arrive. The club will notify you when it is safe to enter.
CLEAN YOUR EQUIPMENT
Clean or sanitize your equipment regularly, including your racquet and tennis bag. It is recommended to replace your tennis balls frequently and not share equipment outside of your group.
As COVID-19 is a constantly evolving landscape, BNWT may decide to ease on restrictions or policies during the season. Feedback from the membership and guests is always welcomed.
BNWT strongly encourages all eligible members, lesson participants, guests, and staff to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Based on the Vaccine Certificate announcement from the Ford Government on September 1st, BNWT will be requiring proof of vaccination for eligible individuals for the upcoming season.
SANITIZE UPON ENTRY
Use the provided hand sanitizer upon entry to clubhouse and dome. Use before exiting dome after your court time.
1.5HR COURT BOOKINGS
All court times will be 1.5 hours in duration. Back to back court times are not permitted.
NO ROUND ROBINS
There will be no Round Robins or Weekly Clinics until further notice.
NAMES ON BOOKINGS
The names of all players must be on the booking ahead of time, to ensure staff knows who to expect and when. You can include player's names at the time of your online booking, or notify the desk staff in advance of your court time.
NO BALL MACHINE
There will be no use of the Ball Machine until further notice.
Furniture will be removed in the main room and replaced with belonging stations that correspond with court numbers. Benches will be provided on court.
Group Lessons will operate with physical distancing measures in place. All classes will be 1.5 hours. Spectators are not permitted at this time, with the exception of our Red Rec programs. Players must be dropped off and picked up, and can only enter the facility 5 minutes before their lesson start time.
All visitors must have a scheduled court time, lesson, or appointment. Anyone coming into the clubhouse to inquire will be turned away and asked to make an appointment by phone call.
