Welcome Back!
 
In preparation of our full facility resumption tomorrow, I thought I would share with you some of our summer plans:
 
FACILITY ACCESS AND SCREENING: IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION
 
The health and safety of our staff and patrons is critical to our successful relaunch strategy. As per the Alberta Health regulations, all of our staff and patrons are subject to Wellness Screening Protocols. This include:
 
Arriving at the Alberta Tennis Centre:

  • Upon arrival at the OSTEN & VICTOR Alberta Tennis Centre, you are asked to immediately hand-sanitize
  • You are required to complete the wellness screening protocol at the Front Desk before entering the facility. Please complete the form (including your name, date and time of arrival). This is critical for contact tracing.
  • If you answer yes to any of the symptoms described on the form (Appendix A – Wellness Screening) YOU ARE NOT PERMITTED TO ENTER THE FACILITY OR PARTICIPATE IN PROGRAMMING. You are required to leave the facility immediately and not permitted to return until you are medically cleared by a doctor.
  • Prior to walking on-court, we are asking each of you to hand sanitize or wash your hands. We ask that you repeat this process prior to leaving the facility (conclusion of your match/practice).
  • We are asking that you leave the facility immediately after your booking or program.

 
Use of Locker Room / Washroom Facilities:

  • Please arrive dressed and ready to go. If you have to change clothing, we ask that you maintain physical distancing protocols (2 metres). If someone is using the changing area, please wait until they are finished before entering this area.
  • No shower facilities are permitted at this time.
  • Washroom facilities are allowed, we ask that you wash your hands for a minimum of 20 seconds and hand sanitize if soap is not available.

 
Park & Play (Parent Drop-off):

  • Please arrive as close to your scheduled time as possible (5-10 minutes max).
  • You must follow the wellness screening protocols when you arrive.
  • Please wait outside the court until your program begins (you must maintain physical distancing at all times)
  • Parents are not permitted to watch your child’s program at this time. You are permitted to wait upstairs (arrive 5 minutes before the end of class) to collect your son or daughter.  Do not wait outside in the hall to pick up your child.
  • Any parent waiting for their child upstairs must maintain physical distancing (2 metres) at all times.

 
Other Club Areas

  • A maximum of 4 members can use the fitness centre at any given time, provided they maintain 2 metres of physical distance. You are permitted to book the fitness centre (60 minutes) through our online member platform.
