January Newsletter 2021


We have all been waiting for this amazing day to come. 2020 is finally officially in hindsight! We want to take this time to thank our members for all of their patience with the regulations we as a club have chosen to adhere to for the safety of our community and families. We know it hasn't been the easiest to be flexible in the conditions we have been given, and we acknowledge your commitment to your health, our employees, and our club. We pray 2021 will soon allow us to make the changes necessary to get back to a more relaxed club experience. As a gift to you, we would like to offer you a complimentary personal training session with our personal trainer, Cullen Eckert. His email address is [email protected]. He will get you set on the right path to attain your 2021 goals.

Health Clubs are Essential Businesses!


We were thrilled when the State of CA acknowledged this, and encouraged people to keep working out, outside for now. Doing outdoor yoga and group fitness classes were among the activities they specifically mentioned. Study after study shows that gyms are low risk for COVID transmission. We list one specific example here.

In response to the second surge of Covid-19 cases many gyms and health clubs have been forced to close their doors. In response to this, IHRSA (International Health, Racquet, Sport Club Association) commissioned the University of Oregon's Consulting Group (OCG) to study the association between health club attendance and Covid 19 cases using Colorado data as a proxy. In short, the findings were clear: health clubs do not pose the same risk as other venues. University of Oregon researchers examined the relationship between gym attendance and Colorado COVID-19 case data using observational and statistical analytical methods.

"We need to be reasonable and critical when it comes to evaluating relative risk." explained KUO (OCG president). "We believe states need to examine their data more closely before hastily closing down gyms and instead making decisions based on what they are seeing in their respective states."

Attention all tennis players at PRSC. As most of you are already aware, the wet weather is here. Unfortunately this is an annoying season for tennis players missing out on their scheduled tennis, clinic, or lessons due to wet courts. I would like to address a few ways that you can help us in hopes to play as much tennis as we can.

On days where rain is in the forecast, the PRSC staff will do their best to roll the courts as promptly as possible if there is a break in the rain. Please understand that rolling the courts does not completely dry the courts. It helps in the drying process, but once the courts are rolled it still requires sun or wind to completely dry them. The purpose of rolling the courts is to remove any puddles or standing water to accelerate the process. Rolling over other areas of the court does not help in the dry time. This complete drying process can take hours and ultimately is dependent on the sun, wind, and temperature. Please know the staff will be doing our very best to make the tennis courts playable as soon as possible.

On rainy or wet days, please check with the front desk regarding your court scheduling, lesson, or clinic.
