Bayside Members,

It is with great excitement that we announce the opening of our hard courts for tennis. After conversations with Governor Carney’s office, we have been allowed to open our tennis courts at Bayside with proper protocols in place.

As we begin to reopening this Bayside amenity, a few very important steps need to be followed to ensure the safety of our staff and members. Here are a few policies to follow for playing on the two designated tennis/pickle-ball courts:

  • All players must check-in with the attendant on duty. A recreational manager will be present during court hours.
    • Members may bring guests for $5, this amount will be automatically charged to the member’s account.
  • A maximum of 10 players combined on the two courts.
    • For example, 8 pickle-ball players (2 sets of doubles) and 2 tennis players are the maximum number of racquet sports players per time slot
  • All players MUST be wearing face masks, covering their mouth and nose the entire time
    • This includes the time waiting to enter the courts and during play.
  • No congregating in crowds more than 10, using the mandated social distancing of 6 feet.
    • This is encouraged during play as well.
  • No bathrooms available at this time
  • No water containers provided at this time

We also encourage our members to follow the CDC guidelines when accessing any facilities within Bayside:

  • Social distancing (specifically, staying 6 feet away from others when you must go into a shared space)
  • Frequently washing hands or use alcohol-based (at least 60% alcohol) hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available
  • Wearing cloth face masks/coverings
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Staying home when sick

Starting tomorrow morning, May 6th, at 8:00am, the two tennis courts will be open for modified play. Court 6 will be designated for tennis play only and Court 7 is designated for pickle-ball play only.
