Message du présidente – COVID-19 Mise à jour

Chers membres, Je sais que certains mois ont semblé longs pour certains d’entre vous, mais nous sommes arrivés à un point où le gouvernement du Québec permet le retour progressif de certaines activités sportives de plein air et nous sommes ravis que le tennis soit l’un des premiers ! Comme nous avons reçu officiellement le « feu vert », nous sommes heureux d’ouvrir le Club de Tennis Royal Oak à partir du mercredi 20 mai. Veuillez noter que pour jouer au club, vous devrez payer vos frais annuels en entier avant de jouer. Les factures seront envoyées sous peu. En raison des circonstances exceptionnelles cette année, nous offrons aux membres la possibilité de se « retirer » de l’adhésion au club pour 2020. Si un membre se retire, les frais d’adhésion pour 2020 seront annulés et le membre sera autorisé à retourner au club en 2021 sans pénalité. Notez que ceux qui se retireront ne seront pas autorisés à utiliser les installations du club. En plus de payer votre cotisation annuelle, chaque membre devra lire et signer le protocole de jeu ci-joint. Les parents qui ne sont pas membres du club mais dont les enfants jouent en tant que membres juniors doivent signer la renonciation au nom de leur enfant et doivent assumer l’entière responsabilité de s’assurer que leur enfant respecte le protocole de jeu.Veuillez retourner votre copie électronique signée à royaloaktennisclub@gmail.com . Avec la pandémie en cours et les lignes directrices fournies par Tennis Québec et Santé publique, jusqu’à nouvel ordre, les activités du club comprendront les éléments suivants :  Le club sera ouvert pour jouer de 8...

Message from the President – COVID-19 Update

Dear Members, I know the last couple of months might have seemed long for some of you, but we have arrived at a point where the government of Quebec is allowing the gradual return of some outdoor sporting activities and we are thrilled that Tennis is one of the first!  As we have been officially given the “green light”, we are happy to open the Royal Oak Tennis Club for play starting on Wednesday May 20th. Please note that in order to play at the club, you will need to pay your annual fees in full prior to play. Invoices will be sent out shortly. Due to the exceptional circumstances this year we are offering the possibility for members to “opt out” of club membership for 2020. If a member opts out, 2020 membership fees will be waived and the member will be permitted to return to the club in 2021 with no penalty. Note that those who opt out will not be permitted to use the club facilities. In addition to paying your annual dues, every member will be required to read and sign off on the attached Protocol of Play. Parents who are not members of the club but whose children play as Junior Members are required to sign the waiver on their child’s behalf and must take full responsibility to ensure their child is following the Protocol of Play. Please return your signed electronic copy to royaloaktennisclub@gmail.com.  With the ongoing pandemic and guidelines provided by Tennis Quebec and Public Health, until further notice, club operations will include the following: The club will be open to play from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.Only singles games will...

Message to Our Members/ Message à nos membres: COVID-19

La version française suit Dear Members, We hope that you and your loved ones are safe and well.  As we approach warmer weather, it is normal to get excited about the upcoming tennis season. Yet, this year is anything but normal. We are all faced with a great deal of uncertainty – in our personal, professional and social lives – as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.  While we would like to be able to start our tennis season as usual, at this point there is no way to know if it will be possible. As of today, what we know for sure is that the Quebec Government has called for minimization of non-priority services and activities, as per Decree 223-2020, adopted on March 24th, 2020. To respect the said Decree, our facilities must remain closed for the time being and we ask all members to refrain from using the Club’s premises. In light of the current situation, you can be rest assured that the Executive Committee is considering our options. All of them share a common denominator:  ensuring the health and safety of our members, staff and community. We will be communicating with you all as the situation progresses. If you have questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to send us a note at royaloaktennisclub@gmail.com . With best regards from your ROTC Executive Committee. Message à nos membres: COVID-19 Chers membres, Nous espérons que vous et vos proches êtes en sécurité et en bonne santé. Le printemps est à nos portes et il est normal que nous ayons hâte de reprendre le tennis. Pourtant, cette année est tout sauf normale. Nous...
