Dear Dave,
Congratulations! We are pleased to inform you that Virginia Indoor Tennis and Pickleball Club (the“Facility”) has been selected to receive a Facility Recovery Grant Award (the “Grant”) in the amount of $5000 to help defray some of the tennis-related expenses associated with reopening your Facility in 2020.

What Terrific News for our Club. 

 


 

THE VIRGINIA INDOOR TENNIS AND PICKLEBALL CLUB WILL NOW BE OPEN FOR TENNIS AND PICKLEBALL

By direction of our Park and Recreation Director Brian Silber, the Indoors will reopen for tennis and pickleball on Wednesday, July 1st.  The  Governor okays indoor sports on this date under specific rules.

Hours of operation:

Monday - Friday - 9:00 - 12:00

Monday -Thursday - 4:00 - 7:00

Closed Saturday and Sunday

People will be allowed to play and must sign in daily so we can contact trace if the need arises.

Special summer rate - $50 membership from June 15th - August 31st.

There will be No Open Play scheduled as of now.  We prefer that you call for reservations and play with people that you know are safe to you.  Players are to bring their own balls and follow posted rules for complying to social distancing.

 

If you are a current member, we have credited your membership by adding 3 months to you.  We based that on closing on March 15 till June 15th.

 



New Rules for Play

 

 

1.  Members Only will be allowed into the courts with reservations needed.  If you are a non-member you can buy a special Summer membership for $50 from June 15 - August 31.  This will help with tracing if needed and not handling money.

 

2.  The doors maybe locked in the evenings to control people in and out of the building.  Please call 218-742-3429 and whoever is working will             let you in.  We do not have the staff for continuous cleaning.

 

3.  Players must bring their own balls for play.  Balls will not be provided by the club.  You may purchase cans of tennis balls for $3.00 per can.  Pickleballs can be purchased for $3.00 per ball.

 

4.  Players must maintain at least a six foot distance . All personal         equipment must be located at least six feet from others’ equipment.             Bags will be allowed into the court area but must be placed on each             players’ own chair.  Benches are marked  where people can sit with             6 foot spacing.

 

5.  Players are recommended to wear a glove on their non-racket/paddle hand and, if desired when playing doubles without a “safe” partner, wear a mask. ** The definition of "safe" partner is one you co-habitat with or with whom you are comfortable regarding their safe covid habits . *We acknowledge that gloves and masks do not prevent one from contracting the virus but it reminds players to not touch their face.
