LAST THOUGHTS:
 
We have had many inquiries regarding guests.  We are happy to announce guests will be allowed at some point soon this season.  This is one of the IT upgrades and we will update you as soon as we can.

In our last note, we did mention you would need to sign the 2021 Code of Conduct, please be advised this is not the case and the Code will be available online in the coming weeks.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at the Club soon!

Hello Kew Members!

Today, we are reaching out today with a few quick updates  ...
 
CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS   

The court contractors have been busy this past week!  Initial prep to get the clay courts ready for the season is well underway.  We are still waiting on the City to turn on our water.  The water access is vital in order to continue working on and finishing the court preparations.

The main entrance redesign and paving is almost complete!

SEASON OPENING

There has been a lot of info in the news the last few days.  We are in conversation with the City for further clarification about restrictions and guidelines as it relates to the 2021 Club operations.

Having said that, it is our goal to be able to open the club on or around April 12th.  We are excited this will be one of the earliest openings!

We will confirm details and official opening day as soon as possible! 

Whether you are celebrating Easter, Passover, upcoming Ramadan or any other special event this holiday weekend, be well and be safe and look forward to seeing you all on the courts very soon,
 
Your Kew Gardens Board
