SPORTIME Bethpage Tennis Guidelines

We have created the following policies and guidelines for SPORTIME Bethpage Tennis, to be followed until further notice, designed to ensure the safest, smoothest, experience for members and staff during this challenging time.  These guidelines, and our Global 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.

Please note that SPORTIME's primary and most important guidelines and protocols are contained in our comprehensive Global Guidelines; we strongly encourage you to review them carefully and in their entirety before reviewing club-specific guidelines. The club-specific guidelines are designed only to indicate where a club's protocols differ from our corporate standard, and/or to provide additional detail.

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.
