September 27, 2020
Dear Members, Staff and Friends,
A new management team was installed on September 4, and we started a phased reopening of the club that allows us to put safety protocols in place consistent with the state COVID-reopening guidelines. All tennis facilities were opened first on September 13, 2020, which is one of the safest activities, given the large spaces on tennis courts. We eliminated tennis membership fees for the time being, to make it easier for members to try out this safer activity. Please visit “Tennis Programs” and “Tennis Pricing” webpages from programs and pricing for adults and kids.
We subsequently opened the gym and racquetball courts on September 24, after redesigning the club’s architecture to lower the density of gym equipment, create one-way traffic flows, uni-directional stairwells, signage with new masking and equipment wiping rules, and placed wipes to make it convenient for members to follow COVID guidelines. Please visit the gym reopening announcement for details on rules and guidelines.
Group fitness classes start October 5. The October class schedule is at this link, including weekly timings and descriptions. Please call 203-239-5665 to sign up in advance, so that we can track the number of people taking a class, to plan for adequate distancing. If you cannot call, here is a link to sign up.
We will continue our deliberate approach to COVID-safe reopening to open other spaces and services (e.g. pickleball) in the next few weeks, as we learn how to take the proper precautions required by state guidelines. We need all members’ continued cooperation – keep masks on at the gym, wipe machines down after each use, follow social distancing guidelines – to keep the community safe and the club open.
We hope to welcome you soon to the club!
New Management of NHHR
