Saint Albert Tennis Club
Swingin’ Saturday Social for All Members
Saturday September 18th from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm
Cancelled due to new Covid regulations and our concern for the health and safety of our members.
We are very disappointed, but in light of the latest AHS guidlines, we feel we cannot continue with this planned social event. The tennis courts are still open but the use of the Clubhouse for food preparation and the intent to encourage members to meet and socialize are incompatible with the new rules. The SATC Board looked at alternatives but in the end, the decision was to cancel the event. All we can hope for is a warm fall to extend the tennis season and a healthy return to normal for next year. Don't forget the AGM on October 16, details on how you can participate to follow.
