If this happens, you must (a) immediately inform the President or the Vice-President of the Club and (b) not visit the Club until you receive clearance to do so from a qualified medical professional or (c) fourteen (14) days after the cold or flu-like symptoms have completely gone away, whichever is later.
Yes. All 5 returning Monitors on staff this season – as well as newly-hired Monitors – have been fully trained on the new City protocols; have to complete specific paperwork prior to each of their shifts, have been provided and have to wear Personal Protective Equipment (masks and gloves); have to keep track and paper / electronic records of member play for contact tracing; etc.
Monitors are responsible to check and validate that players going on court are identified as players having booked said court in GameTime, have completed the Member Waiver and Declaration form, and have answered the pre-play COVID-19 questionnaire. All Monitors sign-off on each of these tasks throughout their respective shifts.
No. The Clubhouse is not open at this time for members. Only the Clubhouse Monitors and the Instructors have access to the Clubhouse. Wanless has chosen to limit access to its clubhouse to help manage contact tracing and self-distancing protocols.
No. The washroom in the clubhouse is not available for use by members at the current time. It is only used for junior summer skill session participants with the assistance of a Club Monitor. City public washrooms are open and available for club members.
Yes. As the City of Toronto has moved to Stage 3, Wanless will be making available one ball machine (Court 1 only) during the hours of 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM on Saturdays and Sundays. The rental will be for 45 minutes to allow proper sanitization protocols in between usage by the Club Monitors. Payment for the ball machine will be done post-play by e-transfer.
We have asked players to wait at the East gate (for access to courts #1, 2, or 3) and West gate (for access to courts #4 or 5) so that the Court Monitor is able to ask the pre-play COVID-19 screening questions, validate and confirm the identity of the players going on court to fulfill the contact tracing requirements set out by the City of Toronto protocols, and be the ones to handle the gate doors.
Because of the 55-minute play restriction we have instituted to ensure the Court Monitors can sanitize the courts in between play, we have reduced the number of games from 14 to 12 for this season; with each game won being worth a single point.
Each Instructor has been provided with their own teaching equipment materials including basket of balls, tubes, cones, etc. They are the only ones accessing them. Additionally, each Instructor has been trained and is fully versed with the City of Toronto protocols as part of the opening of the Club.
