SPORTIME employees are committed to providing our members 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 take great pride in our facilities.
As the global health crisis caused by COVID-19 continues, our focus remains supporting the health and wellbeing of our employees, members and customers. While some COVID-19 related guidelines and protocols have now been discontinued, some have been re-started, and others have been modified or expanded at this time. 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 and organizations.
Notwithstanding all the precautions that SPORTIME will take, due to the nature of the virus, risk of contracting COVID-19 remains. Please be safe, respect others and follow all protocols.
All Staff, Adult and Junior Tennis and Sports Players, Fitness Users, Parents/Guardians and Guests
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, with the following caveats:
While SPORTIME strongly discourages guests and spectators at this time, our buildings are open to those who follow all applicable vaccination and masking requirements. 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.
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 SPORTIME staff members, including all full-time and part-time employees, and all tennis, fitness and sports coaches and camp counselors, undergo rigorous training on all COVID-19 related protocols and standard operating procedures, and receive additional training when such protocols and procedures are updated.
