Member Updates

UPDATE: January 5, 2022

To our YCRC Members,                                             


This year, your Yuba City Racquet & Health Club will celebrate our 47th year as Yuba-Sutter’s premiere health club! We pride ourselves on significant investments in our facilities and staff, using industry-leading sanitation products, giving you the latest high-tech equipment, offering the most diverse and numerous amounts of group exercise classes and complementary youth programs anywhere in the region.


Throughout this ongoing pandemic, we have carefully tried to maintain a balance behind the scenes that reduced costs where possible without sacrificing your member experience or safety. Unfortunately, virtually every cost of doing business has gone up dramatically, and continues to rise. From labor rates, insurance and taxes; to everything from towels, cleaning products, and equipment; we are being financially affected with higher costs.

We last raised dues in 2010. After twelve years of maintaining our rates we had to make the difficult decision to slightly increase our membership dues ranging $3 to $6 dollars per month beginning February 2022.


We have minimized the dues increase to the smallest possible amount while still achieving our desired goals in the areas of our dedicated staff, comfort, safety and convenience; foremost being enhanced safety and sanitation requirements, including an ongoing commitment to full-time cleaning staff.


We cannot emphasize enough how much we appreciate your continued loyalty and support through this time of change. We can’t wait to share the very exciting club updates and additions coming in 2022. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at (530) 673-6900. Let us help you engage with your club in a way that meets your 2022 health goals. We can connect you with a Certified Personal Trainer at no cost, who can give you a full-body scan assessment, help you create a fitness plan, or just take you around the Club to familiarize you with the new equipment.


Thank you so much for your support.


Yours in health,

Pete Bakis

Yuba City Racquet & Health Club Owner

Operational Checklist for Clubs

I commit my health club to operating industry best practices and verify that the club has taken the following COVID-19 mitigation steps, while recognizing that some specific aspects may change as new research and science emerges, we will adapt accordingly.

1. Physical distancing/mitigation measures

Facilitating and supporting appropriate physical distancing. The club employs measures including but not limited to signage, floor markings, physical distancing of at least 2 metres/6 feet (or a distance as stipulated by local guidelines) and is enforced. Longer distances will be considered for certain situations, including group exercise, during periods of high community spread, or high intensity exercise.

Occupancy management systems/policies. The health club is aware of and following all capacity limitations/restrictions in accordance with the key considerations guidelines and has systems and policies in place to enforce these limitations. Occupancy is reduced in key areas including locker rooms, group exercise studios, and other typically high-use areas.

Plans in place to reduce cross contamination. The club has measures in place to prohibit the sharing of equipment, water bottles, towels, etc. in all areas of the club. These plans are always available to members.


Mask policy in place and enforced. At a minimum, all local mask ordinances/guidelines are enforced in the facility. Members are required to wear a mask or cloth face covering upon entering and exiting the club, and while moving between areas within the club, and anytime physical distancing can’t be maintained. Members may or may not be allowed to remove the mask during exercise. Staff are always required to wear a mask or face covering in the facility.

2. Employee/Member Safety Protocols

Comprehensive staff training. Employees of the club are informed about the latest available evidence and guidance regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, including transmission risk, current community spread, risk mitigation protocols, personal hygiene training and best practices. Management and staff are committed to following local, regional, and national guidelines.


Employee and Member Health Monitoring. The club has implemented daily health screening protocols for both employees and members. Screening options could include self-screen prior arriving to the facility, and/or temperatures and symptoms screening prior to entering the facility.

Contingency planning. The club has safety and communication plans in place for situations including a member displaying symptoms while at the club or a member who has tested positive for COVID-19 and potentially exposed other members.


Employee feedback mechanism. The club provides a safe and appropriate mechanism to highlight any suggestions or issues, such as a suggestion box or email.


3. Cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting

Extensive hygiene and sanitizing protocols. Personal cleaning products including hand sanitizer and alcohol-based rubs/gels, soap canisters, and closed bins for safe disposal of hygienic materials (e.g., tissues, paper towels, sanitary products) are readily available to members and staff.

The club has a cleaning schedule to ensure the facility is clean and hygienic–wiping surfaces and any equipment regularly with disinfectant, ensure cleaning procedures include disinfection of door handles, toilet handles, bathroom faucet handles, gym, sports equipment, all touch points, etc., in all areas several times per day.

Enhanced measures to optimize ventilation and filtration. The club has ensured that HVAC systems meet all local requirements and standards, and the club has taken additional measures to maintain safe humidity levels (40-60%), regular air exchange, ventilation, and purification. Monitoring records to show evidence of implementation of these measures.

UPDATE: April 21, 2020

After five weeks apart, we miss you dearly, and hope you are staying active and healthy! We are monitoring how other areas of the country are handling “Phase 1” of the re-opening process for health clubs. Common themes to all “Phase 1” plans include social distancing (limiting the amount of people inside based on the club’s square footage), limiting time spent in the club, and keeping certain areas closed where sanitizing and social distancing can’t be easily achieved.


Locally, our Club owner, Pete Bakis, has been selected to represent the Recreation Community on the committee to discuss re-opening procedures for our Yuba-Sutter community.


Globally, since the beginning of our shelter-in-place order, Pete, and several YCRC team members, have stayed in daily communication with health club professionals from the around the world. They share best practices for keeping members active at home and share plans for bringing our members back into the Club in a safe and healthy way.


A draft re-opening plan is well underway for the Club. Once state and local regulations are released, we’ll finalize the plan and get it to you asap!


Just to remind you:

  • All memberships were automatically put on “freeze”. You will not be billed for any membership dues or other monthly billings while we remain closed.

UPDATE: March 18, 2020 | Club to Temporarily Close


To our Yuba City Racquet & Health Club Family,


We appreciate your support during this very challenging time. We tried our best to keep your Club open while maintaining a healthy environment for our members and staff. With new direction from government officials and after much thoughtful consideration, we have made the decision to temporarily close beginning tonight, Wednesday March 18, at 7pm. We are not sure how long this closure will last. We will be following guidelines from the CDC and what is in the best interest for our members and staff.

During this time, your membership will automatically be placed on freeze at no cost to you. You will not need to call or contact us to place your membership on freeze. If you have not been receiving our email updates, please be sure to check this page and follow us on Facebook for updates.

If you have registered for paid classes or have appointments scheduled with our Personal Trainers, Tennis Pros, Massage Therapists, Swim Instructors or any other staff during this time, your appointment will be cancelled and you will not be charged. All pre-paid services will be honored.

We have never closed our doors in the 45 years we have been in business and we did not make this decision lightly. We intend to open our club as soon as reasonably possible but not before it is determined that it is prudent to do so. We realize that these times are hard for all of us and understand that YCRC is your home away from home. In the end, the safety of our members and staff is our highest priority. We look forward to welcoming you back to YCRC!

We want to keep you active during this difficult time. Members will continue to have free access to our Les Mills streaming at-home workouts. Visit to access 90+ amazing workouts, led by world-class instructors.

Wishing all of you the best. Be safe and remain healthy.

UPDATE March 16, 2020


To our Yuba City Racquet & Health Club Family, 

For over 44 years, it’s been our mission to maintain a safe, clean and healthy Club for members and staff. While there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 (Coronovirus) in the Yuba-Sutter area, we’d like to provide you with a detailed list of additional efforts we have recently implemented to ensure your continued safe use of the Club:

Equipment Cleaning: Sweat/perspiration cannot transmit the virus, but if an infected person coughs or sneezes, the virus can survive on surfaces, so in addition to a night cleaning crew, we now have a full-time day cleaner, focused on more frequent disinfecting and cleaning of high-traffic member areas. We wipe down and sanitize all cardio, strength, and group fitness equipment multiple times per day.


Our members are also a critical component of our historical success, so please continue to wipe down your equipment with the gym wipes before and after every use.

Locker Rooms: We conduct a thorough locker room “sweep” every hour during off-peak times and at least twice per hour during peak times. Our mission is to keep the locker room clean, sanitized, and clear of debris. Our biggest ask of our members is that you place your towels completely inside of the towel bins and dispose of all trash in the trash or recycling bins. Please do not leave your towels on the floor or on locker room benches, and please make sure all your belongings are inside a locker as opposed to leaving shoes, coats, etc. on or underneath the benches.


Pools. Jacuzzis and Cold Plunge: All of our Pools, Jacuzzis and Cold Plunge are regularly checked multiple times daily to ensure proper chemical levels and proper filtration. In addition, our automated chemical and filtration systems which maintain pool chemistry at all times are checked multiple times daily. Please remember to wash your hands and rinse prior to entering.


Childcare: All staff are diligently cleaning the facility and all toys that are being used in between use. We will be limiting the time for club childcare to 1.5 hours until further notice. We will be limiting the quantity of children at any given time to 8. For availability please call (530) 673-6900.


If your child has been exposed to anyone with symptoms or traveled outside of the United States we ask that you do not bring them to childcare.


Overall Club Cleaning: We have always and will continue to conduct a thorough full-club cleaning and disinfection, 7 days a week by our staff and night crew. This includes a thorough cleaning and disinfection of the reception areas, fitness areas, childcare, restrooms, locker rooms and showers, steam and sauna equipment, entry/exit doors and handles, member areas and staff areas.


- All of our cleaning and disinfecting products have been checked to make sure that they are formulated correctly, including our detergents for towels

- Additional spray bottles and other cleaning items have been added throughout the club

- Hand sanitizers are checked and filled regularly

- Employees will be cleaning all surfaces every 20 minutes on a rotating basis

- Employees will also be disinfecting the water fountain stations. We recommend bringing your own water bottle to stay hydrated while working out during this time

- Snack bar will remain serving coffee/tea , smoothies and fresh food. We will take extra measures to wash hands prior and use gloves when handling orders


Personal Training & Group Exercise Classes: Our Personal Trainers and Group Fitness Instructors wash and sanitize their hands before and after each client/class. We are taking extra precautions to reduce, and in some cases eliminate, all non-essential physical contact for the time being. Trainers and Instructors will be asking all participants to maintain a minimum 6 ft. social distance during classes.


Most of our Group Exercise classes will be ending 5 to 10 minutes early to create and promote a break between group classes and allow time for all participants and instructors to disinfect their equipment, steps and mats in preparation for the next class.

We recommend bringing your own mats during this time.


Maximum Participation/Capacity, by Area, at Any Given Time:

- 25 in the main studio

- 10 in the cycling studio

- 20 in the main pool

- 4 in the indoor/outdoor jacuzzi

- 2 in the sauna and steam room


Employee Health: All staff business travel, conferences and conventions have been cancelled or postponed. If a staff member shows signs of illness they will be instructed to stay home.

We are now conducting frequent Director meetings and staff outreach to communicate new policies and safety measures as the latest updates unfold.

Helpful Information about the Coronavirus from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

- Stay home if you are ill to help prevent the spread of germs and illnesses

Note: If you are at the Club with symptoms, we will ask you to go home

- Don’t touch your face

- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve/elbow area

- Wash your hands frequently, for at least 20 seconds, or use a hand sanitizer


In Addition to the CDC guidelines, please be a good citizen, disinfect all hard surfaces after using them (equipment, handles, weights, pads and screens.)

Physical activity has been repeatedly shown to provide us with enormous health benefits, mentally, emotionally and physically. This includes enhancing the functionality of our immune system. Your Racquet Club team will continue to do everything possible to provide you a safe place to exercise during these trying times.

Thank you for your continued membership and support during this time. Please don’t hesitate to contact myself or any of our Directors at the Club. We are available to answer any of your questions as they arise.

Every day, we will remain diligent and continue researching how to best keep our members healthy!
