As we move thorough a messy wet May the ever growing number of rained out classes continues to increase, driving organizational madness and players’ frustration.
For all, the following is to outline how to find out about the possibility of play.
First how the rainout decision is made: Main criteria is for safety-Can the level of play and learning needs be safely met given the current court conditions? If it is raining no class will go ahead. If the rain has stopped and the court can be dry enough to safely play and learn we go ahead. Gord will try to personally check all courts possible or has prearranged with community centres for a designated person to check the court surface and outside conditions.
Second how the information gets to the Community Centres; The hope is to have Mother Nature’s current and future condition along with the possibility of play assessed and passed on to the Community Centres and Web Site update 1 hour before the scheduled start time. While desirable, this is not always possible as it is a Rain Forest Climate in which we live and it can and does change in a short volley.
Third-How the Community Centres passes the information to you; Phone calls; you, players participants class members parents call the centres having your classes on that day and information given to the front desk will be given to you. The Web site is updated; where a centre has a Hot Line that line is updated.
Forth how you get any updated information: Check my Web Site and the Weather Or Not Listings; Call the Community Centre Front Desk number;
continue to check in regularly on the web site for updates and information to follow.
Hope is always for dry courts and safe play.
Reminder that there are no classes on the May Day Weekend.
Enjoy the time off, walk, play and thanks to Queen Victoria for having such a long lasting influence that we still get a holiday from her long ago reign.
Even if you do not know who she was-see google.
The WPG Tennis Program Lessons are held at Jericho Beach Tennis Courts.

Yes there is a Santa Claus and with the elves and dwarfs the work has begun on the Kits Beach Courts.
From Wednesday May 15th onward until further notice all programs at the Kits Beach Courts will now be held on the Tennis Courts at Kitsilano High School. All Kids’ classes will be held on the North Courts and Adult Classes will be held on the South Courts. Times remain the same.
This will be small sacrifice for the Tennis playing public who have more than earned the pleasure of playing surrounded by one of the most beautiful settings Tennis can be played and played for free-small tax increase aside.
