We are opening on June 10th 2020, however it will not be business as usual!
WBC has put processes and guidelines in place for preventing and managing the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) at WBC. These guidelines are based on input from several sources including Badminton Ontario and the South-West Health Public Health.
The foremost objective of the WBC for re-opening plan is to reduce the chance of COVID-19 spread by social distancing and sanitizing.
WBC Phased Opening
WBC will re-open in a responsible and safe manner. Thus, we plan to re-open cautiously and over time relax the restrictions in an incremental (phased) approach. The guidelines and protocols have been distributed members via email. Based on guidelines from government and health organizations we will relax restrictions to make the club more accessible as we return to normal operations.
Upon re-opening, we will be minimizing the number of persons at the club facility to no more than 5 at a time. We have incorporated an online booking process for court reservations that is located on the WBC website. Only 2 courts will be available for booking a 75-minute session from 6am to 12 Midnight from Sunday to Thursday (Fridays will be closed for sanitizing and Saturdays available for private lessons). Only singles play will be allowed in this phase. Members only will be allowed to reserve courts. Non members will not be allowed as we want to avoid the use of cash in this phase. As government regulations relax and health guidelines change, we want to further open access to the club.
Relaxation of some limitations and restrictions that are expected shortly.
