Important Steps to Increase Safety at the New Albany Tennis Center
12/2 Updated Safety Instructions for Clinics, Court Time, Private Lessons and Pickleball:
-Players will be with the same coach for the duration of their clinic for that day, until further notice. This will help eliminate contact with more than your player group for that day.
-Participants in any clinic, lesson, court time, pickleball event should remain in their car until the start time of your event. No participant or parent/guardian should enter the bubble before the start time of their scheduled event. This will allow the previous class/lesson/court time participants to exit the facility. All events have a 5 minute early end time to buffer between events.
-We continue to encourage a limited number of people in the facility. Parents/Guardians are encouraged to stay in the car during their child's clinic/lesson. Only one parent or guardian per player may enter the bubble.
-Anyone entering the bubble, MUST wear a mask. Parents and guardians MUST wear a mask at all times.
-Players and coaches ONLY may remove their mask when participating in their activity and when following social distancing guidelines. Coaches will wear a mask as much as possible during the activity and will only be removed when communicating instructions from a safe distance. Players are encouraged to wear masks during activity time such as ball pick up and immediately when leaving court area. Complimentary masks are available on all courts and at Sanitizing Stations.
-Face coverings are required for everyone entering the office and in the restrooms. Limit one visitor in the office at a time and in the restrooms.
-'X's have been marked on the side of the court for social distanced standing or seating for Spectators and for Players to place their belongings. Parents/Guardians are to stay on the X for the duration of your stay. For the safety of our players and staff, please do not enter the court area or sit in the backcourt. This area is used by players and coaches.
