7/3/20: Membership Update & Policy Reminder


New Canaan Field Club

Membership Update & Policy Reminder


Dear Members,

Happy 4th of July weekend! It is wonderful to see so many members enjoying the Club’s facilities. This year will be an especially memorable weekend for all of us given the current global pandemic.

New Canaan seems to be managing the situation, but it is hard to ignore the rising number of COVID-19 cases in our surrounding towns. As members, we want to continue to safely enjoy the club facilities and we are therefore asking for your help. We kindly ask that you adhere to our COVID-19 policies announced by our president yesterday (and summarized below). We also encourage you to review them with your children along with discussing with them the possible impact in the case of non-compliance.

Here is a summary status table:


Report any family member who tested positive for COVID to our President and Membership Chair to help the Club take appropriate precautions (your name will be kept anonymous)

Quarantine for two weeks and do not visit the Club if you are returning from one of the 16 states for which Governor Lamont has issued a mandate

Wear a mask from your car to the your destination, including for pick-up/drop-off and when in close proximity with anyone not in your immediate family  

Tennis Courts & Pro Shop

OPEN with distancing, you are required to wear a mask from your car to your destination, including when picking up/dropping off and inside the Tennis Hut


OPEN with distancing, you are required to wear a mask from your car to your destination, including when picking up/dropping off and in close proximity of other members/staff

NO GUESTS policy is still in effect, only family members within your immediate household and currently living in your residence are allowed in the Club. Visitors or family members coming from out of town are not allowed as guests at the Club at this time.

Nannies and babysitters are allowed on the property but they must sign in at the registration desk when they come into the pool area to register that they are caring for a child.

Our goal is to best balance giving our members the “NCFC experience” while still responsibly following social distancing requirements. This is only feasible if we all play our part. We thank you in advance for your support and understanding. We also encourage you to visit our policies on an ongoing basis as we continue to adjust them subject to the directives and orders of the club associations, the town and the state.

Please take the time to review this membership update closely. We welcome feedback from Club membership regarding all applicants under consideration. You may confidentially submit your information by email to membership@nc-fc.com.
