The following is the e-mail sent to the past membership of the Bowmanville Tennis Club. If we missed you, or are new to the community please contact the club and we will ensure that you get the relevant information.

The directors have been busy since our last update. The following decisions were made. 

1)     Court Re-Surfacing. The project has been moved to spring 2021, (tentatively late May) to continue to build cash. With limited programmes for 2020 revenue will be tighter but fixed costs are not reduced.

2)     There will be no late fee for the 2020 tennis season as we will not be holding an official registration weekend.  Members should pay their fees before they play as it shows confidence in the club and its directors if all memberships are paid before any member steps on the courts. The directors encourage everyone to register as outlined on the attached registration form. 

3)     Covid-19. The directors agree that the courts will not be opened until the following is completed.

a)      Approval to open is received by Clarington as the Club is on town property.

b)     Appropriate protocols are in place to guide the membership’s use of the tennis courts.

c)      We will begin once the courts are open to permit singles play on both courts until there is clarity as to what constitutes a group gathering.

The current developments are fluid and the directors will update the membership as soon as possible on any confirmed items.

The countdown to the Tennis Season Begins.

Hi everyone,

The Municipality of Clarington has announced “All municipal playgrounds, play structures, skateboard parks, basketball and tennis courts, and sports fields are closed until further notice.” In the interest of public safety and everyone’s health the BTC Executive has made the decision to temporarily close the courts. We will be taking down the net and there will be a sign posted at the court. We are optimistic that this will be a temporary measure and once the curve has been flattened we will be able to get back to playing. I would refer you to https://www.clarington.net/en/town-hall/covid-19-information-and-updates.asp for updated information from the Municipality of Clarington.

  1. I’m looking to get my son lessons. He is 10 years old and have started to have a strong interest in playing tennis. We play regularly but he has never had lessons and would like to improve his game. If you can let me know if your accepting private lessons now that tennis is allowed to operate.
