Edenbridge Tennis Club appreciates your cooperation in following the Covid-19 protocols that have been established to protect our members, staff, and the community at large. The following protocols have been established based on guidance and recommendations provided by the City of Toronto, Toronto Public Health, Province of Ontario Health and Safety Association and sport governing bodies.

The club is taking prudent steps to impose and enforce appropriate protocols to keep members safe, but there can be no assurance that the virus will not be contracted while at the Club. This is a risk that each member must assess themselves when deciding to visit the Club.
