Pickleball Fernie COVID-19 Club Update
Susan and I have just returned from Arizona. We are still shocked about how fast lives and plans can change. Hearing continual updates about how the spread of this virus is affecting people all over our country, makes us aware of how fortunate we are here in Fernie. For those that have loved ones affected by the outbreak, my prayers and thoughts are with you.
As your executive we would like to update you on our position as a club and also pass on information of what Pickleball Canada is suggesting to minimize the affects of the virus in our community. As you are all aware, The City of Fernie has closed down all public facilities to date. This includes the Community Centre and the outdoor pickleball courts. The executive would suggest that members refrain from playing pickleball until we are advised that it is safe to do so. The outdoor courts are locked and will remain locked until we get permission to make them available for play. I wish we could suggest some sort of alternative, but currently there isn’t one. I am attaching an ofﬁcial response from Pickleball Canada so you can read how the National Pickleball Body is addressing the issue. Please click here to view a copy of Pickleball Canada's communications around COVID-19.
We hope that you will remain virus free and continue the necessary precautions so as not to spread the virus. These are trying times and if we follow the advice given to us from the experts, hopefully we can remain virus free and get back to doing what we enjoy doing.
Susan and I are self isolation for two weeks. Feel free to call me or email me if you have any questions.
Larry DeMarchi - President Pickleball Fernie
