KTC COVID-19 UPDATES

We are excited that the with the opening of the provincial economy, the various phases of restoring services has enabled us to open the 2020 season and has allowed us to be more flexible to reinstate services and activities that are important to our members, such as doubles play and social nights! Your Board of Directors worked around the clock to prepare KTC and to ensure the health and safety of our members and staff.

KTC officially opened on May 9th. We tested our operating protocols and are pleased to advise that effective May 14th, we were able to ease some restrictions. As of May 21st, we were able to reinstate doubles play! Social nights will begin on June 26th. And a form of league night is in the works!

In accordance with the Manitoba Provincial government and Tennis Manitoba guidelines, here’s what members need to know about how KTC is currently operating:

  1. KTC courts operate from 9 am - 9 pm, seven days a week.

  2. Washrooms are open (limited use; access controlled by staff; not to be used as a change room)

  3. All 5 courts are available for play.

    1. Only courts 1, 3, and 5 are to be used for Doubles play.​

  4. Players must pre-book a court; no walk-ups.

  5. KTC books a 15-minute buffer between court bookings to allow for staff to sanitize court chairs.

  6. Members must follow staff direction and COVID-19 protocols at all times.

  7. Members must not enter the courts if:

    1. You have returned from outside of Manitoba in the last 14 days.

    2. You are under direction to self-monitor or self-isolate

  8. Members and non-members are able to book lessons with our Tennis Pros.

  9. The lounge is not open.

  10. Tennis ball sales and racquet services such as restringing are available. 

Please visit the “Playing During COVID” dropdown menu on our website and review the material, all of which is pertinent to the conditions of your membership. There, you will find the details you need to:

  • Pre-book a court.

  • Understand the protocols for arriving and exiting the courts.

  • Know how to observe social distancing while playing tennis.

    • Additional information for observing social distancing while playing doubles.​

  • Obtain services: Buy tennis balls online and arrange for racquet services.

You may also review this information by going to the Member Documents section of your membership account homepage. 

 

We will continue to evolve KTC operations based on our analysis of Tennis Manitoba and Provincial Government guidance. At this time, we are carefully monitoring the Doubles play guidance as we know how important this activity is to KTC members. 

Guidelines are in place to minimize transmission of COVID-19, but everyone plays at their own risk.
