POLITENESS, PATIENCE & CONSIDERATION

By: John Woodend, Reception Desk Director

 

The Front Desk Staff and I are looking forward to seeing all of you back at the Club healthy and ready to continue working out and playing tennis. However, we all still need to abide by the rules that are put in place to keep everyone safe.

 

While some people feel that reopening gyms has taken too long, others feel like they are still uncomfortable coming to the Club,  And that is fine! We all have the right to feel the way we feel and to hold differing opinions about our current situation. However, when coming to the club I would like to request that we all remember to be mindful of other members and employees of the Club.

 

Politeness — Please do not engage in conversations that may make others feel uncomfortable or triggered. Politics is always a hot button topic. Those around you may not appreciate hearing your take on the politics we are experiencing. Best to remember that we are ALL here to get exercise and DE-STRESS.

 

Patience — Coming and going to the Club is going to have a different pace for a while. This isn’t anyone’s fault — it is just the reality of the situation we are in. Remember to practice patience. I know members and staff will greatly appreciate it.

 

Consideration —  Be considerate of members and staff. Let the Front Desk Staff know if there has been a change of the players on your court. If someone is distancing themselves far away from others, consider that the individual may be more nervous being back at the Club than the next person. Be considerate and give that individual more space. It won’t hurt and it will make that individual feel more comfortable.

 

We are very much still in a stressful time. Let’s make all of our experiences at the Club as positive as we can, together.
