Of course, if you experience financial difficulties as a consequence of this emergency, please do not hesitate to contact me or Hans, and we will make appropriate arrangements to assist you during this difficult time. I’m sure you will also understand that, until further notice, the committee will only consider applications to suspend or downgrade membership for cases of financial hardship. We cannot stop you resigning, but I implore you to consider that step very carefully if you want a club to come back to after this turmoil subsides.
The executive and committee will continue to monitor the situation, and I will keep you apprised of any changes to club operations as and when they arise. In the meantime, I encourage you to follow the advice of the public health authorities to keep yourself, your families and your friends safe and healthy.
President, Hobart Real Tennis Club
