Our BTC activities will be starting Monday, June 1. Join us for:
Drop In Tennis every Monday and Wednesday morning from 8:30 - 10:30 am at Wirth Park.
Meet on Friday nights for Mixed Doubles every Friday, starting at 6 pm.
Please follow these precautions:
Maintain Physical distancing of 6 feet or more
· No Organized Group Tennis - Includes lessons, team practices, matches or spectators
· Limit play to every other court
· Play should be between people in the same household unit
· Groups and/or gatherings are not allowed
· Entrance/Exit gates will be locked “open” allowing user to enter and exit without touching surfaces.
· Court use should be limited to one hour if individuals are waiting to utilize the facility
· We recommend using hand sanitizer after touching court components
· We recommend following CDC Guidance for wearing face coverings
· People should not touch others tennis balls or equipment
· Wash hands immediately after returning home
Therefore, we will need to wait until Phase 2. At that point I do not know if groups will be limited in size. We will just have to wait and see. It sounds like even the USTA state league will not get going until after July 4th.
Other municipalities do have different guidelines. Hart Park has all of their nets up but with a sign indicating courts are not sanitized and social distancing should still occur when playing.
It is safe to assume none of the scheduled BTC activities in May will occur. We will let you know when we can start to play as a group at Wirth Park as soon as we find out. Although the above recommendations from the City of Brookfield are talking about tennis, I am sure that these same recommendations apply to pickleball.
If there are any questions, please email Gretchen or myself.
