Covid 19

The following policies and procedures will be in place:

  • Do not come to the camp if you are feeling sick or if you have been exposed to Covid 19. No exceptions. You should immediately seek medical advice.

  • Do not arrive early and congregate indoors. If you do arrive early please stay in your car or gather outside keeping 6 feet apart.

  • Wear a mask from the time you enter the building until the time you are ready to play. This includes changing your footwear etc as you get ready to play.

  • Enter the gym through the foyer (wearing your mask).

  • We will be using the 4 ball system. This means that players will only touch their own pickleball. If a ball from another court comes onto your court please do not pick it up with your hands. Instead stop the ball, find out where it came from and then send it back there without touching it with your hands. Once you are finished serving put your pickleball in your pocket until the next time to serve. If you don’t have pockets then bring a small towel and use that to ‘nest’ your ball at the back of the court.

  • If you don’t have your own indoor pickleball with you then you can use a ball that is supplied by the club. There is a hanger attached to each pole that contains several pickleballs. If you are going to use one of these balls you need to sanitize it first by using the disinfectant spray that should be at the post. Once you spray the ball you should wipe it with a towel. After you have finished playing with the ball we ask that you disinfect it and return it to the container hanging on the net post.

  • In between games players should maintain a distance of 6 feet as they hydrate and get ready for the next game.

  • When you are getting ready to leave after your court time is over we ask that you wear a mask because there might be a new group of players coming in to use the court area that you are vacating.

  • If you arrive at a court that is in the process of being vacated we ask the arriving players to wait in the middle of the court away from the benches while the players who are vacating are gathering their belongings and getting ready to depart. Remember to keep your distance from each other at all times.

  • Exit the gym through the corner exit doors in the gym.

  • Common touch points will be disinfected by the camp staff several times throughout the day.
