Facilities, Personnel, and Operations Update

Fitness, Sports and Tennis Policy Reminder:

The Bay Club goes through great efforts to give our members a safe and enjoyable exercise experience. To accomplish this, our tennis and athletic instructors, and trainers are interviewed and extensively vetted regarding their experience, expertise, and background to allow our members to choose from a topflight instructional staff.

To maintain such standards, the Bay Club’s Membership Guidelines restrict “Formal, personal, or group instruction with regard to fitness and sports training, including tennis, by any individuals other than authorized Bay Club staff.”

We ask that all members be respectful of this policy. Violations of the policy could affect the memberships of both those offering and receiving unauthorized instruction, including the suspension or termination of memberships.

Please contact your Club if you have any questions regarding this policy. Thank you for your cooperation.
