Lockdown Update April 2021 FTC
Hello 2021 FTC Members!
Good news, it looks like the club will be able to stay open during this lockdown period, as long as we strictly adhere to protocols. This is not quite the same as last year with the variants being more contagious so we urge you to take additional precautions to protect yourself.
Please refresh yourselves with the rules listed below. If we are caught not following protocol, we may be forced to close.
We will keep you posted should anything change regarding playing doubles as well as when the township plans to turn the water on so we can open the washrooms.
See you on the courts!
