Under Special Rules during COVID-19 Pandemic
(updated July 21, 2020)
Dear Members and Friends of ENTT,
After a number of months of being closed for safety reasons, we have
reopened our club for limited play, but under a strict set of rules
necessary to prevent the spread of COVID-19, a disease that is still very
much a threat to all. These rules ask you to give up some convenience and
comfort in order to save lives. We believe this tradeoff is reasonable and,
more importantly, necessary in order to make our members and guests as
safe as possible. Studies and experience have proven that events where
people are exercising (and breathing heavily) in a relatively small,
enclosed place can act as "superspreader" events, allowing an infected
person to pass the virus on to many others at a time. We cannot take the
chance of becoming a statistic like this. Hence, these rules.
Please read and understand
these rules prior to visiting the club. By visiting ENTT, you are consenting to
these rules and promising to abide by them:
- The club is open by appointment only. You must arrange in
advance to visit the club. We are developing an online reservation
system which will make this as easy as possible and hope to have it
operational very soon. Until then, please contact Steve Camas and make
an appointment with him before coming to the club.
- Each day is divided into nine time slots for you to reserve.
Operating hours are 8:30 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week. There are
four two-hour time slots available in the daytime and five 90-minute
time slots available in the evening. The time slots are as
|8:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.
||10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
||12:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
|2:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
||4:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
||6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
|7:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
||9:00 p.m. - 10:30 pm.
||10:30 p.m. - midnight
- You must reserve one of these specific time slots. Only one time slot may be reserved per day per member,
but up to eight
members may reserve any one time slot on any given day.
You must reserve your time slot at least two hours in advance.
- You must wear a face covering (cloth or paper
mask) that covers both
your nose and mouth at all times while in the club. We're sorry, but
there are no exceptions to this rule. This includes time
playing, time resting, time waiting etc. You may remove your mask for a
few moments to drink water, etc. but you must put it back on immediately
afterward. Your mask must be designed to filter air in both directions
(breathing in or out); masks with plastic "vents" defeat this purpose. For comfort, we recommend cloth masks
consisting of at least two layers of fabric. Paper "surgical masks" are
another option and are available at all drug stores. We do NOT recommend
"N-95" masks, which restrict airflow too much and are not recommended
for use while exercising.
- Please do your best to maintain "social distancing" as much as possible
while in the club. We realize that this can be difficult when moving
around while playing, but please try. Six feet of separation can save
- No doubles play is permitted at this time.
