PLAYERS MUST BEGIN WINDING DOWN GAMES 10 MINUTES PRIOR TO THE END OF THE RESERVED TIME AND BE OFF THE COURT BEFORE THE END OF YOUR SCHEDULED TIME. NO ONE IS TO ENTER THE PLAYING AREA PRIOR TO THE PREVIOUS GROUP BEING RELEASED FROM THE AREA. NO NEW GAMES SHOULD BE STARTED DURING THIS WIND DOWN TIME.

However, you MUST be a Member of the Fogolar Furlan Pickleball Network in order to play on our courts. All players must be registered to the Fogolar Furlan Pickleball Network in order to enable contact tracing for the Health Unit in the event of an outbreak. Be reminded that ALL persons playing on our courts must show proof of full vaccination either at the Office or by emailing your proof of vax to: reception@fogolar.com

Greetings Fogo Pickleball Community.

I am sorry to announce that this will be our last message for a little while but not forever. Due to the Province's announcement today to move Windsor-Essex into Stage Red, we will be stopping all Pickleball activity as of Monday November 30th, 2020. There will be too many restrictions to allow it to run in our facility as it was intended to be. Doubles play will be prohibited, and only 10 people will be allowed in any given facility. Anyone who would like to play through to Sunday November 29th are welcome to reserve as usual or if you currently have a reservation, it is still valid. After that, please check back for announcements of when we are set to return to play.

I want to thank everyone who were able to support us over the past couple of months. I know some of you did not have a chance to play, but for those of you who have, I had a blast getting to meet you and share in all the fun playing and observing everyone's style of play. It has been an honour to be a part of this wonderful community and looking forward to starting things up again soon. The Fogolar Furlan is very appreciative and thinks of you as part of our family now. We will be back as soon as we possibly can, with new and exciting ideas to attract some new players, a youth program and maybe a few surprises!

Thank you all again and if we don't speak soon enough, may your families have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season!

Please stay safe and healthy. We want to see you all back here soon!

Regards,

Dino Quattrociocchi

Hello again everyone.
Further to yesterday's communication point #7, Extra players/subs/or reserves cannot be in the playing area/room/courtside while not taking part in an actual game at this time. They must wait either in the Main Lobby, Lounge or in the corridor between the courts. These individuals MUST still be masked and socially distanced to a minimum of 6ft apart while waiting to play. Should the Windsor Essex County Health Unit provide any further guidance on this matter, we will adjust accordingly

Sorry for any confusion that may have been communicated

Regards,

Dino Quattrociocchi
General Manager, Fogolar Furlan Windsor
