Hello Parents and Players,
With the uncertainty that the pandemic has caused, the Brookline Tennis Academy must suspend lessons and summer camp for the time being. We are moved to make this decision based on the indefinite closure of Pine Manor College and the tennis facilities there. We are optimistic for the Fall to proceed normally. This email will explain the details further.
Without a definitive opening date for the college, we have decided to suspend lessons and camp for this summer. In fairness to our players and families, we want to make sure you can make definite summer plans rather than waiting for the news of a potential opening that we are not certain will come. BTA will offer refunds for Spring lessons and Summer camps. You may also apply your registration fees to future classes or camps, pushing Spring classes to Fall on the same day and time or forwarding your registration for Summer camp to 2021. Please contact Shelly to discuss arrangements for refunds or applying your fee to a future clinic or camp (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Pine Manor will next update us on June 30th. If there is a decision to open the college in July or August, we are willing to run camp for those weeks that are available. We’ll keep you posted about the June 30 update.
If the situation with COVID-19 continues to improve, we anticipate that Fall lessons will begin on September 12th and go through the end of October. The fall schedule is online and you can register here. We are very confident we can run camps and clinics safely following state and local guidelines.
We sincerely hope that we can get some summer tennis in this year, but unfortunately, there is much that is out of our control. While we play the wait-and-see game, we’ll keep you updated with any new information. We at BTA truly appreciate our tennis community sticking by us and I am REALLY looking forward to the future, moving beyond COVID-19 and the reopening of all tennis programs that BTA offers ASAP!
Coach Shelly and your BTA staff
