The Round Hill Board continues to monitor public health and safety rules and guidelines related to the coronavirus pandemic to evaluate if and when the pool can safely open this summer and what additional steps and procedures we will need to implement to make it work. With last week’s changes to the Governor’s Plan to Reopen Kansas, we are considering a “soft” opening for the pool the week of June 15-21st when maximum capacity is limited to 45 people with an expanded opening June 22nd which is the earliest date limitations on capacity are removed under the State’s plan for reopening.
Even if there are no changes in the State reopening plan, there may be additional limitations on capacity imposed by State, county or city officials with respect to pools and we will continue to watch for and evaluate these limitations.
If we are able to open the pool, plan on the following limitations:
- No rentals;
- No pool guests;
- No concessions;
- No ping pong or foosball;
- Limited, spaced seating (bringing your own encouraged);
- No 4th of July event (we plan to close the pool the 4th to avoid a large crowd);
- No swim team or swim lessons;
- No JTL – intraclub match play instead
This is all subject to change as we evaluate the situation and the available information.
Sustaining Membership Dues: $150 Due by Memorial Day
We are now offering a Sustaining Membership for $150 per family for existing members (including those who have already joined this year). Until further notice, we are not accepting additional applications for new members. The membership renewal form can be downloaded at: https://roundhillclub.org/sites/default/files/RH%202020%20Membership%20F.... It will be updated soon to include the Sustaining Membership option. Until then you can select Renewal as the membership type and send in with your check for $150 and we will know what it is for. An online payment option is available on our website at http://roundhillclub.org/membership.
If the pool opens this summer, we plan to charge an additional amount to cover pro-rated dues based upon the percentage of weeks the club is open. If, for example, the pro-rated amount is $400 and you paid $150, you would owe $250.
Sustaining members will have access to the tennis courts and any other activities organized by the club this summer. If you want to continue to use the tennis courts or participate in tennis programs, the sustaining membership dues are due by Memorial Day. Sustaining members will not be subject to any cap on membership if and when the pool opens later this summer or next summer. To cover our fixed operating and maintenance expenses, we will need income this summer. To ensure the continued financial viability of the club, we hope that those members who can afford the sustaining membership dues will pay them.
ALREADY PAID YOUR DUES?
If you already paid your dues and plan to maintain your membership this summer, our preference is to wait until a final decision has been made on opening the pool and the amount to be charged before refunding any amounts paid in excess or obtaining your approval to apply the excess to next year’s dues. If you need or want a refund now, contact Leslie Foiles at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not request a refund now, you will be deemed to have paid the sustaining membership dues.
The Kansas City metro-wide JTL-Junior Tennis League has been officially cancelled for this summer. In response, Round Hill Club is considering a member-only Ladder League similar in format to JTL where youth members play against each other on rotating teams to provide valuable match-play experience. We hope to start in early to mid-June. If interested, please contact Lisa Erickson at email@example.com for more information.
Round Hill Club will continue to provide group lessons to members only using a sign-up method for reservations with our instructors. See flyer & links on the Tennis page of our website.
