Greetings to Everyone:
Spring has officially arrived which means that the tennis season is almost upon us. A few days ago the city informed us that our permits will be issued to start our season. This is great news! We will officially open our club on Saturday, April 10th. We anticipate that health and safety protocols will be very similar to what was in place last season. This is likely to include hand sanitizers, masks to and from the courts, no guests and keeping socially distant. Once the official health guidelines have been determined they will be posted on our website. Please note that doubles is allowed. We are still waiting for the restrictions to be lifted on all instructional programs, including private and group lessons. You can still reserve your spot for the lesson packages, but we will not ask for payment until these restrictions are lifted.
NEW – Online Registration
We have updated our website to allow for online registration. It has never been easier to sign-up! Please check out our website at www.guildwoodtennis.com to view the many program offerings, including special programs, lessons and summer camps!
Back by popular demand, we will be using GameTime for our court bookings. No more waiting for courts! The popular “Invite” feature is back if you are looking for someone to hit with. Please remember you do have 3-day advance booking privileges. You will receive your personal code to book courts once you become a member.
We are extremely pleased to announce that Jared Nicholson will be returning as our Head Pro this year. After a horrific injury last August, Jared is running again and looking forward to working with you all. Jared will be running both the adult and junior lessons.
NEW - Court Monitor
We are also extremely pleased to announce that our 2020 Ladies’ Singles Champion, Nicolette Fuhr, will be our new court monitor for this year! She will be running and playing in the Round Robins and assistant to Jared with the junior lessons. Welcome Nicolette!
Due to Covid-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all STF teams for 2021. Your safety is most important to us. We look forward to returning to the STF next year.
We will again be using a chained combination lock for our main gate. Please lock it if you are the last person leaving the courts. A new code will be issued once you become a member.
Opening Round Robin
Our Opening Day Round Robin is scheduled for Saturday, May 1st, between 12 -3 p.m. Join us for a fun afternoon of tennis, laughs, and some food and drinks. All new members are encouraged to come!
So dust off your racquet, find your shoes and get ready for another fun season of hitting the ball and being outdoors! Don''t forget to sign-up for our programs, lessons and camps! We thank you for your patience and we look forward to seeing you on the courts!
