Dear Rosedale Community, Members and Program Participants

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has upended life for all these past couple of years, and tennis at the Rosedale Tennis Club was no exception. Luckily tennis thrived this summer, membership and usage was up, and we were thrilled to be operable even if with limited offerings.

 

We owe a huge debt of gratitude to our devoted staff who worked tirelessly to ensure that the courts were prepared for play, and that all safety protocols and procedures for a safe and healthy environment were in place. A special debt of gratitude to Head Professional David Solc for his guidance and leadership through these extraordinary circumstances. It was all hands-on deck as we opened our doors to welcome the Rosedale Community back to the courts in the park.

 

Thank you to our members, parents, and program participants for your patience as we navigated though another challenging year. Thank you for your compliance and resilience in adapting to the requirements.

 

Our Junior Camps were a huge success this year. We loved seeing so many eager and happy faces each morning ready to take part in healthy exercise. Our coaches were amazing and always willing to adapt their lessons to suit the needs of our young players each week. Thank you, Rosedale community for trusting us to take care of your little ones and provide them with a summer experience that they deserve.

 

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I want to express our gratitude to all our members and program participants for your support this season. Whether it was in the form of thank you emails, renewing your memberships even though you could not be with us this summer, volunteering, or simply following the rules and sticking with us through this unprecedented summer, it was appreciated. It's because of your commitment to the club and its community that the RTC was able to thrive this summer. Unfortunately, COVID-19 will likely continue to challenge us in the coming months, but we will stay the course and do our part and look forward to the return of our "usual" RTC summer next year.

 

We have kept the nets up for as long as weather has permitted, nets will be taken down and doors locked in the coming days.

 

Wishing you and your families all a very Happy Holidays.

 

We look forward to seeing each one of you back on the courts in 2022.

 

Sincerely,

 

Richard Nicolson

Tennis Director
