Message to RA Badminton Club Members
  
First and foremost, we hope that you and your families are all well and safe. Many of our members have expressed some concerns as to when our club will be allowed to start play. They see clubs in the Toronto area opening, although in a diminished capacity, and are asking why our club is still closed. The RA Board of Directors and Senior Management have been sending out notices providing RA members an overall status update. Each club/activity will be unique in how they will start up operations. Your Executive is working at such a plan for the Badminton Club, so when the Ontario government gives the RA the go ahead, we will be ready.
  
Opening the Badminton Club will depend on the restrictions placed on the RA by the Provincial Government. For example, number of people allowed in the building at any time, sanitization procedures, social distancing rules, etc. Our situation is unique as there are many other clubs or activities that must also be taken into consideration. This means that the RA building must be made ready before any of the clubs can open. This includes A/C, cleaning and security staff and monitoring procedures are some of the items that they have to consider. The common areas will remain closed (change rooms, drinking fountains, etc.). Currently, at Stage 2, only outdoor recreational activities are allowed to take place.
 
Do not despair, we will be playing eventually. Ottawa is currently at Provincial Stage 2 and we need to get to Stage 3 before the remaining businesses, which are still closed, can re-open.
Please continue to monitor this website for any new information.
    
Thank you very much and keep safe.
