IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR MEMBERS AND GUESTS
All members will be required to review the TTC Reopening playbook, which is the document that outlines our new safety protocols for members and staff. We put together a video which will show you what many of these protocols will look like in practice. All players will be required to fill out a TTC Reopening Player Agreement, which confirms that players understand the COVID-19 risks associated with using TTC and that they have read, understood, and agree to abide by the new safety protocols.
We’re open again! Benton County businesses are able to re-open after the freeze, and we will be able to resume operations at the same level we were doing prior to the freeze. The county’s COVID situation will be analyzed by the state every two weeks until there is a widespread vaccine. If the data puts Benton County in the “extreme risk” category, we will be forced to close for another two week period or until the county is out of that category.
TTC will be shut down for 2 weeks to comply with the State of Oregon “freeze” order. We look forward to resuming operations on December 3.
Timberhill is complying with the OHA statewide mask mandate, which requires face coverings while playing indoor tennis. Contact the club for suggestions on which face coverings are most comfortable for exercise.
Timberhill has started its summer junior classes (with smaller class sizes and enhanced safety protocols), as well as adult classes (with class size limits and safety protocols) and Parks and Rec junior and adult classes. All of our teaching pros are now back at work. Social areas, club lobby, and pro shop remain “employees only”. Locker rooms are available for patrons wearing a mask.
Timberhill Tennis Club re-opened for member usage and lessons (private, semi-private, and small group)
Timberhill Tennis Club, in accordance with Benton County’s approval for Phase 1 re-opening, is planning on re-opening on Wednesday, May 20, 2020. Court reservations have been re-activated, and new protocols are being sent to all memberships. They can also be accessed by clicking this link to the TTC Reopening Playbook.
The TTC Board of Directors voted on Tuesday night to close to members and guests, effective March 18, 2020 until further notice, all facilities at TTC: including the indoor and outdoor courts, clubhouse, as well as the reservation system.
This was a hard decision to make, as it will inconvenience members and burden our employees. We feel that the club is responsible for leading by example and doing our part to protect the health of the general public. The Board is grateful for the recent collective efforts to minimize viral transmission; however, the public risk of continuing operations seems too high.
We are all tennis enthusiasts, who desire to play again at TTC as soon as possible. The Board will continually monitor conditions to evaluate when, and how, this can happen.
TTC will reopen today to membership play and lessons with new safety protocols in place that are in line with local, CDC, and USTA guidelines for safe play.
Oregon’s mask mandate takes effect today. All indoor use of TTC, including play on indoor tennis courts, will require the wearing of a mask or face covering. Medical exemptions only, to be requested from the Director of Tennis Operations.
In line with Oregon and CDC updates, face shields alone will no longer be accepted face coverings while indoors at TTC. Medical exemptions only.
TTC will close its operations in line with the statewide two-week “freeze” on social and business activity. Expected reopening date is December 3. Exceptions are:
Outdoor courts will remain open to members, by reservation, weather permitting
Pro Shop will be by appointment, curbside service.
