If enough memberships are purchased, the township could potentially open the club.
To Whom It May Concern,
The Hazlet Township Committee is re-evaluating the possibility of opening up the Hazlet Swim and Tennis Club for the 2020 season.
As you may be aware, the club is sustained entirely by the revenues generated by the Swim Club. This means memberships. In order for the pool club to operate, we need enough memberships to generate enough revenues to operate the club. That is why we are reaching out to potential members, those who have signed up this year or in years past to see if you would sign up for the 2020 season.
If enough memberships can be obtained by the end of June 19, the pool may be opened in the near future. A potential opening date cannot be determined at this time as staffing and preparations would need to be put in place.
The membership fees have been frozen at the early bird rates announced earlier this year. The membership fees would need to be paid by June 19. I know it is a lot to ask. However, the club cannot operate without the revenue. If the pool club was to remain closed, all checks would be returned and payments refunded.
The State Health Department has released guidelines for safe operation of our Swim Club. These guidelines are a bit tedious and will limit pool access and add cost to operate, but they are for our safety. Please consider them before you commit to a potential membership
* Occupancy is restricted to 50%
* Number of persons in the pool may be restricted
* No chairs will be provided.
* Each person entering will have their temperature take before entry
* The playground, zip line, and rock wall will be closed, as per state orders.
* Face coverings, for people of certain ages, will be required when social distancing is not a possibility.
There are other restrictions in the guidelines that will need to be followed. These restrictions may be modified or removed by the State in the future.
Please review the membership rates.
