Falling Into Tennis - November 2020

October 28, 2020

I hope all of you have made it through this ‘unique’ summer!  It will be good to get to 2021 and try this all over again.  It was also an interesting summer on the courts, limiting class sizes and activity policies made for a lot of first-time experience for most of us.  I’m happy to say we’ve made a return to larger classes this fall.  I’ve increased the number of courts used for each program, so safe distancing can be maintained even with larger groups!

It’s great to see so many of our great members have chosen to resume their involvement in the tennis and pickleball programs this fall! All classes are once again SOLD OUT!  It’s important to note that we are not allowing class drop-ins due to the Covid restrictions.  I may allow drop-ins later this winter if conditions improve.  Only those who pre-registered will be allowed to attend programs.

With programs resuming, please refrain from spectating if you are dropping off your children.  We are currently limiting the number of people in the building at one time. 

It’s also important to note we are not allowing the use of loaner racquets and paddles at this time.

If you haven’t seen the indoor courts since last spring you may notice a few changes!  Keep an eye out for the following:

  • Easier access to the court 5 hitting wall.
  • Deep cleaning behind all courts.
  • All backdrops hemmed for improved player safety.
  • Improved enter/exit signage for all courts.
  • Improved doorway closure for less ball loss.
  • Easier viewing of both court clocks.
  • New mural installed on court 1 balcony windows.
  • New blue paint on court 1 wall for improved visibility during play.
  • Antique racquet décor on court 1 wall.
  • More to come!!

Please call or email me if you have any questions.  I can be reached at bcook@findlayymca.com or (419)788-0142.

I hope to see all of you soon at the East Branch – it’s going to be a great indoor season!!
