SPORTIME clubs, and our team members, are committed to providing our members, players, students and guests with the finest athletic and social settings, and the very best programs, instruction and amenities for tennis, sports, camps, health and fitness. We pride ourselves in our high degree of hospitality, integrity, social awareness and attention to detail. We strive to achieve operational excellence and to provide our members with intimate, welcoming and comfortable environments. We are relentless in our commitment to the quality of our facilities and programs.
With more than half of the adults in NYS now fully vaccinated, we look forward to putting the pandemic in our rear view. However, with the emergence of the Delta variant, we are, unfortunately, not quite there yet. For now, our focus remains supporting the health and wellbeing of our employees, members and customers. The following guidelines are currently in place across all SPORTIME facilities and will be updated as we receive new directives from governmental and other health agencies.
Notwithstanding all the precautions that SPORTIME will take, the risk of contracting COVID-19 remains. Please be safe, respect others and follow all protocols.
Prior to coming to a SPORTIME Club, to use SPORTIME facilities, to participate in SPORTIME programs and services, and/or to spectate, or to work if a SPORTIME employee, all individuals, and, in the case of juniors, their parents/guardians, should confirm the following:
If an employee/player/guest/parent is not able to confirm statements 1-4 above, then such person(s) should not come to a SPORTIME club until such time as they are able to confirm all four statements, and should contact their SPORTIME location for further instructions or requirements before returning.
By entering SPORTIME premises to use SPORTIME facilities, to participate in SPORTIME programs and services,to spectate and/or for any other reason, or if a SPORTIME employee to work, all individuals, and, in the case of juniors, their parents/guardians, agree to the following:
All employees must wear protective face coverings indoors, at all times, when not actively participating in activities on courts, rinks, fields, regardless of vaccination status, with the following caveats:
SPORTIME buildings are open to guests and spectators who follow all applicable vaccination or masking requirements. For those who are still not comfortable entering indoor public spaces, SPORTIME has installed geographically limited and password protected (for the safety and privacy of our players and staff) live-streaming capability on most of our tennis and sports courts, turf fields and rinks. We have made this substantial investment so that parents, family members and friends can easily spectate remotely, either from their cars in our parking lots, or from other areas immediately adjacent to our clubs. Log on to your club's home page for access and click here for more information.
Eating indoors, on or off-courts, rinks, fields or in fitness spaces, is prohibited, except at SPORTIME Randall’s Island, where sit-down dining is offered. Drinking indoors is only permitted on courts, fields, rinks, and in fitness spaces.
Bathroom and locker room facilities at SPORTIME clubs are available for use by customers and employees. Members, guests and employees who use the facilities, regardless of vaccination status, should limit their time spent in them, maintain physical distance from others, and wear face coverings whenever possible. Saunas and steam rooms will remain closed until further notice
Where offered, this service will be unavailable until further notice.
All SPORTIME facilities have protective Plexiglass barriers installed at reception desks and other customer-service counters, as well as in offices.
What matters most in the prevention of the spread of COVID-19, and other airborne illnesses, is that fewer people share larger, and more open spaces, so that the airborne virus, if present, is quickly diluted, both by the sheer volume of air and through abundant air circulation. That is why tennis and sports courts and fields are such good places to exercise safely, as detailed below.
All local, state, federal and other governmental mandates, protocols and directives will be followed to ensure the safety of all SPORTIME staff members and customers.
All SPORTIME staff members, including all full-time and part-time employees, and all tennis, fitness and sports coaches and camp counselors, undergo a rigorous training on all COVID-19 related protocols and standard operating procedures, and receive additional training when they are updated.
