Dear Mr. Ford,
Please consider providing an exception to allow the indoor tennis clubs to stay open during the COVID related lockdown.
Tennis clubs provide a great way for the kids and adults to stay healthy and fit with the minimal risk of community transmission. Due to the individual nature of the sport, it is very possible for the indoor clubs to provide a safe environment with proper distancing and health protocols. To date there has not been any significant instances of the COVID transmission in the tennis facilities.
Current situation is needlessly punishing Ontarians who rely on tennis facilities for their health and mental well-being while failing to accomplish the purpose behind the current restrictions. Forced closure of the clubs is hurting hundreds of kids in the high-performance programs as well as thousands of kids in the recreational tennis programs across Ontario.
Thank you for your attention to this matter
