*THURSDAY OCTOBER 22 – RSC Update*

NOTE FROM RSC’S CEO & FOUNDER, NICKI BRIDGLAND

Dear RSC Community,

This has been a challenging and confusing week for all sport organizations, as we look to find the balance of safe play in “Modified Stage 2” and the well-being of our clients, including their physical and mental health.

Earlier this week we needed to step back, pause and re-assess unclear provincial guidelines to ensure that we were on the right track. Today we have some good news to share with you, following consultations with the Province of Ontario, the Ontario Tennis Association (OTA) and the City of Ottawa. We now have a better understanding of how “Modified Stage 2” applies to RSC activities.

I have been in communication with the City of Ottawa’s Recreation & Culture Department, and have come to understand that private non-City-run sport facilities (such as RSC), are responsible for determining their own interpretation of unclear Provincial regulations. While we often share information and best practices with City facilities, I have been informed that the City only has jurisdiction over their own sport facilities while interpreting unclear provincial guidelines. In the past few days, we have surveyed the Ontario Tennis Association (OTA) and major private tennis clubs in Toronto (who are also in “Modified Stage 2”) regarding their interpretation of the current provincial regulations. Worthy of note, Toronto tennis clubs continue to allow Doubles Tennis Indoors & Outdoors and are offering their regular Indoor Tennis Programs.

Therefore, I have made the following decisions for RSC Tennis & Multi-Sport effective immediately (Thursday, October 22):

Tennis Outdoors:

  • Doubles Tennis is permitted, in addition to Singles Tennis.
  • Everyone MUST maintain 2 meters physical distancing, especially when changing court ends.
  • Masks MUST be worn to/from the court, while preparing to play, and before/after physical activity.
  • Apply hand sanitizer when entering/exiting the Tennis Courts (available at all entry/exits).

Tennis Dome:

  • Doubles Tennis is permitted, in addition to Singles Tennis.
  • Each playing surface (i.e. court) shall be treated as a “room”, and therefore carry with it a maximum of 10 participants plus coaches.
  • Nets between courts MUST be kept closed at all times, to keep each play area distinct, with no player cross-over.
  • Masks MUST be worn to/from the court, while preparing to play, and before/after physical activity.
  • Everyone MUST maintain 2 meters physical distancing, especially when changing court ends.
  • Apply hand sanitizer when entering/exiting the Tennis Courts (available at all entry/exits).
  • Fall 1 Tennis Programs will resume the week of November 2 and complete November 13.
  • Fall 2 Tennis Programs will begin the week of November 16 to December 30 (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday = full 7 weeks; Thursday and Friday = 5 weeks, with 2 weeks credit applied to your account).

Multi-Sport Dome:

  • Each playing surface (i.e. court) shall be treated as a “room”, and therefore carry with it a maximum of 10 participants plus coaches per court.
  • Nets between courts MUST be kept closed at all times, to keep each play area distinct, with no player cross-over.
  • Masks MUST be worn to/from the court, while preparing to play, before/after physical activity.
  • ONLY Skills & Drills will be permitted, NO games or scrimmages.
  • Everyone MUST maintain 2 meters physical distancing, even during coaching talks.
  • Apply hand sanitizer when entering/exiting the Tennis Courts (available at all entry/exits).
  • Fall 1 Sport Programs will resume the week of October 26 (except Prezdential Basketball, which resumes immediately).
  • Fall 2 Sport Programs will begin as originally scheduled the week of November 2 and complete as originally scheduled December 18.

RSC has kept you safe all Summer, and we look forward to continuing to provide you with a safe play space this Fall!

Warmly,

Nicki Bridgland
CEO & Founder
Rideau Sports Centre

*MONDAY OCTOBER 19TH UPDATE*

Dear RSC Program Participants,

It is with sadness that we are sending you this update.

Based on further conversation with the City of Ottawa, it has been determined that there needs to be a maximum capacity in the dome of 10 people.

As such, effective today until Friday, November 6th for the remaining 28-day period, we will be pausing all Fall I Programs. Our Fall I Program session will be bumped out by the number of weeks paused (i.e. if we pause for 3 weeks, then the end date will be 3 weeks later). We will resume the Fall I Programs as soon as capacity for the dome increases. Fall II Program start-date will be delayed based on this pause. We will be in touch with new start-dates for Fall II Programs once we have an update to share.

Since demand for tennis in Ottawa is at the highest level ever, we will be opening up more Tennis Court rental availability. Due to the pausing of our Fall I Programs, prime-time tennis court slots will now be available…which is great news for tennis players in Ottawa. 

Click here to book more tennis court time. As a reminder, Summer 2021 Pass Holders will be able to book 8 days in advance. The general public has 7 days advance booking notice.

We look forward to seeing you as we continue through the “Modified” Stage 2

Thank you for your continued support as we navigate all these changes.
