Indoor Sports: “One is left out”

Sports intérieurs: «On est laissés pour compte»

The government’s plan to déconfiner sports is ” completely illogical “, since it discards the indoor sports, denounces the owner of the Club Benefit of Quebec.

Everything is ready for the re-opening of its training centre, which includes 14 tennis courts, and badminton, as well as a gym.

The protocols of distance are established and the sanitary equipment is in place for its customers to train in accordance with departmental directives.

However, like the many training rooms across the province of Quebec, the establishment of the rue Bouvier still do not know when he will be able to reopen its doors.

“One is left out of account, it is obvious,” plague Serge Jacques, the owner of the Club Advantage since its opening in 1979.

“It has everything that it takes to receive the people with the measures which are requested by public Health. Everyone I talk to is ready. All that’s missing is the “go” of the government “, he swears.

Endless waiting

Mr. James deplores the silence of Quebec regarding the resumption of activities indoor sports.

A dichotomy is “unacceptable” adds insult to injury to its meaning : while the access to the tennis courts interior remains banned indefinitely, the outdoor courts are open to the public, ” said Mr. Jacques.

“In one situation or the other, the opponents are to one hundred feet away, calls-t-it. It is very safe as the environment. It is as if the government had said that everything that is inside, we will take care of it later. “

“Perilous Situation “

In addition to the many fitness centres, Serge, Jacques argues that the twenty centers indoor tennis are the costs of this inconsistency to the four corners of the province.

If its establishment has been able to again start to offer massage therapy services on June 1, “this is not the heart of our revenues,” retorted the man of business.

“All the gyms are in peril at this time. There is not a company that is structured to have no income for three months “, asserts there.

“It is time that we think about the small entrepreneurs who will take years to recover from this blow, or, at least, for those who will succeed to pass through, connects Serge Jacques. You don’t ask for money, it just asks to reopen ! ”
