Local club opening for limited play

By Medicine Hat News on May 13, 2020.

The Medicine Hat Tennis Club has figured out a way to open its doors to members today, though the season will unsurprisingly look nothing like normal.

An email from the club to members Tuesday stated that “the City of Medicine Hat, with direction from the provincial government’s relaunch strategy, has permitted the club to open with some restrictions.”

Two of the seven courts at the Crestwood facility are public, though only one is open due to pandemic-related restrictions. Four of the other five will be available for dues-paying members, while the clubhouse will remain closed.

The club is complying with provincial regulations by only allowing a maximum of 15 people in the entire facility at once, and only two players per court unless four people from the same household want to play doubles.

There won’t be any tournaments, lessons or leagues unless provincial restrictions change.

Registration fees are reduced as a result of the limited access and restrictions.
