These policies are based upon current guidelines from local, state, and federal governmental agencies and decisions made by the Board and Management to best suit Aberdeen.  These policies will be reviewed as guidelines and conditions continue to change.
The guiding principal that drives all the decisions made by your Board and Management during this unique situation is the health and safety of our members, staff, and overall community.
It is important for everyone to understand that a natural side effect of easing restrictions is the possibility of increased risk of the COVID-19 virus being spread to members and staff members.  As you decide when you personally will reintegrate into club activities, we want to remind you that it is still very important for you to continue social distancing, keeping your hands sanitized and most importantly not to come to the Club’s facilities if you are feeling ill.  Obviously, social distancing will be more difficult as we reopen the Club’s facilities, however each of us must take personal responsibility for our own actions and decisions.
For the safety of members and staff members alike, the following key aspects have been implemented in order to minimize multiple persons from touching the same surfaces, assist with social distancing, etc.:
  • All tables and chairs, at the tennis observation deck, will be removed.  
  • All 14 tennis courts will be available.  
  • All furniture (tables, chairs, and racks) will be removed from the on court comfort stations.
    • If you feel that you will need to sit in between games, you are required to bring your own folding chair.  So not to damage the tennis court, your folding chair is to be placed on the concrete pad at the on court comfort stations. These comfort stations are 10 ft. x 20 ft. and members are expected to space their folding chairs at least six feet apart from each other.
  • The overhead fans, at the on court comfort stations, will be disconnected until further notice.
  • The Fitness Tennis Aquatics beverage station and on court water fountains are unavailable until further notice.  It is important that you stay hydrated.  As such, we suggest that bring your own beverages.
  • Towels (dry or iced) and sunscreen will not be available. Please bring your own.
  • All trash receptacles will be removed from the tennis courts. Trash receptacles will be available at the Tennis Observation Deck for you to throw your own trash away after your game.
    • When finished playing, please take away anything that you brought with you - do not leave any items behind. 
  • The FTA locker rooms are unavailable until further notice.  Should you have items stored in your locker, we cannot assist you at this time.
