We are now two weeks into our 2020/21 winter program. Our COVID-19 protocols have been ironed out at all three venues: the Summerland Badminton Hall, the Harold Simpson Memorial Hall and the UNISUS International School.
Establishing a system of 4-6 member pods has proven to be very effective. Pod Leaders are empowered to ensure COVID-19 protocols are followed and are charged with booking times for their pods. Our Sign-Up Genius booking application does double duty by also providing COVID-19 traceability reporting.
We currently have 20 pods playing regularly. Most pods have formed on their own by players recruiting each other based on skill level and compatibility. In some cases members of the SPC board help newer players find a suitable “home” for the season.
Thank you to everyone who continues to play by the rules while having fun and enjoying each other’s company.
Paddles up and stay safe!
