This section is for members to find updates about facility opening, guidelines for operations, and a list of frequently asked questions on the 2020 season.
- Q: When will the pool open this year? A: It’s too early to say for sure. Local public health authorities will dictate our schedule, but we remain hopeful for July 1st
- Q: If the pool opens, will there be pool furniture? A: The plan is to have a few tables to use but members will have to bring their own chairs
- Q: Will we have to sign up to go to the pool? A: It is likely that attendance will be limited to a percentage of capacity. We plan on having members sign up for two-hour blocks of time utilizing an online system.
- Q: Will there be guests allowed this year? A: Given the likely capacity restriction, guests will not be allowed.
- Q: If a member elects to move to inactive status can they play Tennis? A: No. Inactive members are not allowed to be at the facility at all.
- Q: Will I be able to shower and use the locker rooms? A: No. You will need to shower before you come to the pool. We plan to leave one stall for each bathroom open, but we will utilize external gates for entrance and exit. Members will not enter and exit through locker rooms.
- Q: Will there be an early morning lap swim? A: We will try to accommodate lap swim if there is interest.
- Q: Who will ensure there is social distancing? A: We are counting on the adults to be responsible, but lifeguards may blow the whistle at kids if they are not keeping their distance.
- Q: What if I don’t feel comfortable about the pool opening this summer? A: You are in no way obligated to go to the pool.
- Q: Why did we decide to fill the pool? A: First, the Dupage County Health Department informed pool operators that if they don’t get filled and become a mosquito health hazard, fines will be levied. Second, when the pool is covered for the winter, it is approximately 90% full. If left alone, we would have all sorts of issues with things growing into drains, filters and would end up with a jungle in there. Third, the main pump is designed to run and not sit idle. The water running through it actually preserves longevity. A new pump costs around $25,000.
- Q: What If I jump in the pool at midnight when nobody’s watching before July 1st? A: The water is 55 degrees.
Q: Will the Shark Shack be open this summer?A: The Shack operator is ready to open if allowed. If the health department allows it to open this year, then we assume there will be a limited menu and other restrictions.
Q: Can I wait to pay dues until I know if the pool will open?A: Annual dues are to be paid by May 22nd. If you pay after that date, then there is a late fee assessed.
Q: When can I play tennis?A: As soon as the top coat is dry and cured an email will be sent out to all members that are up to date on all 2020 dues, any back dues and assessments.
Q: Where do I send my dues payment?A: Saybrook Bath & Racquet Club, c/o Renee Hacker, 1083 Stone Ct, Naperville, Il 60563
