SPORTIME Amagansett Guidelines

We have created the following policies and guidelines for SPORTIME Amagansett, to be followed until further notice, designed to ensure the safest, smoothest, tennis experience for members and staff during this challenging time.  These guidelines, and our Company-wide guidelines, will be updated on an ongoing basis, as we receive new information and directives from governmental and other health agencies and organizations, and based on our experience navigating this “new normal”.  While some might view certain protocols as overly cautious, SPORTIME may choose to maintain them, in spite of prevailing guidance, if they make our members, customers and/or staff feel safer and more comfortable. 

Notwithstanding all the precautions that SPORTIME will take, due to the nature of the virus, the risk of contracting COVID-19 remains, as we are all aware.  Please be safe, respect others and follow all of the precautions, protections and protocols put in place during this COVID-19 epidemic.  

CLUB GUIDELINES

Club General Safety Guidelines

  • Do not come to the club if you are exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19, including mild to severe respiratory illness with fever, cough and difficulty breathing, or other symptoms identified by the CDC, or have been in contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
  • All members and guests MUST wear a face covering when arriving and departing and when on club grounds and not playing, or whenever physical distancing cannot be achieved.
  • All members must maintain six feet of physical distance from all other members and staff at all times, even on the tennis court.
  • For both court-time and lessons, players are asked to enter their assigned court only once it has been vacated by other players. Courtesy and common sense must prevail at all times.
  • Players are encouraged to change sides on opposite sides of the court, around opposite net posts.
  • Every court has hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes available.

Club Tennis Rules & Guidelines

  • Singles play and doubles play, and lessons/programs/camp are allowed.
  • Private and group lessons (on-site and off-site) are available 7:30am-7:00pm, 7 days a week (a 48-hour cancellation policy applies). 
  • Member Guests are welcome at a rate of $40 for morning play and $30 for afternoon play. As always, each guest is limited to three visits per season. All guests must now sign waivers (personal info must be captured, for contact tracing if necessary) before coming to the club (click here for link) or register on the MYSPORTIME app.
  • While the most recent CDC guidance appears to indicate that transmission of the virus from surfaces is unlikely, in an abundance of caution, we recommend that each player provide his/her own can/s of balls and personalize them clearly, or take note of their unique numbers, as long as the numbers are not the same as the other player’s ball numbers. Players should serve or start a rally using their own balls, and should avoid touching balls that do not have their marks; instead they should use their rackets to roll or send the balls to their playing partners. Balls and personalizing supplies are available at the club.

Club Restrictions

  • Our bathrooms are now open, limited to two people at any given time. Showers are closed until further notice.
  • Our Cafe is open.

  • Small hand towels are available, but not shower towels.
  • Staff, including management, facility maintenance and housekeeping teams, are on-site to make sure that all areas of the club remain safe, clean and actively maintained at all times. We are also making sure that all distancing and sanitary protocols are followed by all players and by all staff members at all times.  
  • Please do not leave any equipment on the court as it will be thrown away.
  • We ask that you please limit your social time at the club until further notice.
