April 2020


Dear members of Berks County Tennis Club, I hope this note finds you well. The circumstances of the last number of weeks has significantly affected the world in which we live. We all have been impacted by the covid-19 pandemic .


Your BCTC Club board members( with the welcomed addition of Kathy Herr and Katie Simone) along with Jen & Rick, have been planning options and contingencies to address the evolving impacts of covid-19 on the 2020 tennis season. At this stage we can say, with some certainty, there will be changes in opening the club for play according to our “normal “schedule


In any other year our opening day is variable. Our opening requires court preparation which is always dependent on weather. This year, court preparation is also dependent on covid-19. We are monitoring the covid-19 situation daily and taking direction from public health officials and from government organizations. The governor of Pennsylvania is recommending that all outdoor clubs remain closed at this time.


However, we are now  preparing for the club to be opening (hopefully) by mid May. The courts are slowly being done so that play may be available at that time. 


I know everyone is anxious to get outside and to play. We are striving to be ready as soon as it is safe. In the days ahead please check for club emails, monitor our website and Facebook page for announcements and further updates. Please indicate any email changes on the membership application.   


If you have any questions please email me at or  by cell 484-638-8302. I wish you and your friends and family's good health and happiness at this difficult time.  


Eric Donahue

Club President
