Dear members, students, faculty, staff, and community;

Due to the current conditions with COVID-19, UBC Recreation and UBC Camps are suspending programs beginning March 14 through March 29. While the Public Health Agency of Canada continues to assess the risk as low for Canada, we seek to minimize transmission in the community by limiting close contact with others at this time.  In addition, in accordance with a recommendation from Provincial Medical Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry, the BC Centre for Disease Control, Ministry of Health and Vancouver Coastal Health, the university is cancelling all on-campus and off-campus events with more than 250 people.

Programs suspended or cancelled are:

  • Storm the Wall & Storm the Wall Community Festival
  • All spring break camps from March 16-20 and March 23-27 (are all cancelled)
  • Aquatic lessons, certifications, & classes

  • Ice – skating & hockey lessons, Thunderbird Adult Hockey League
  • Intramural programs – league sports, Storm the Wall, Hall of Fame
  • Rowing – community rowing programs & lessons
  • Tennis – lessons & programs

Additionally, there will be some adjustments for access to fitness centres, pool, and gymnasiums. We understand that fitness and sports provide a much-needed outlet during stressful times like this which is why our recreational and fitness facilities remain open while providing a safe, healthy environment. The following facilities will be available for drop-in activities with adjustments to manage possible risks:

  • Aquatics Centre (steam room & sauna closed)
  • ARC & BirdCoop Fitness Centres (and associated fitness studios)
  • Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre for public skating & stick & puck

Tennis Talk – March 2020

Seventeen-year-old Canadian Leylah Annie Fernandez has officially made her presence known on the international tennis stage.

At the 2020 Australian Open, Fernandez cruised through the qualifying round without dropping a set to become Canada’s lone representative in the women’s singles draw.

Since then, Fernandez defeated then world No. 5 Belinda Bencic at a Fed Cup qualifier, reaching her first WTA final in Acapulco (losing in three sets to world No. 49 Heather Watson), and stunned former world No. 3 and 2017 US Open Champion Sloane Stephens to reach the quarterfinals in Monterrey last week.

We also can’t forget her doubles title last summer in Gatineau with our very own Rebecca Marino!

The Montreal teenager is now the second-highest ranked Canadian woman at a career-high No. 118, behind the injured No. 6 Bianca Andreescu, and we can’t wait to cheer on another Canadian making waves in the tennis world.
