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.
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. Each station will be sanitized after each group.
Being late for your court time is extremely discouraged, as it affects the changeover times for other members and guests. 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.
