Contract Groups – These are groups with a set day and time to play each week during the winter season (October through April, for 25 weeks). A lottery will be held in September for choice of times. Current contract prices will be published at that time.

Tennis Pass Holders – A Tennis Pass gives a member the privilege to use the indoor tennis courts on a daily basis. See the current contract rate schedule for more details.

3. COURT CANCELLATIONS:
Once a court has been reserved, cancellation involves the following:

  1. After notification, if we can re-assign the court, members will not be charged.
  2. If we cannot re-assign the court, and all other courts are booked at that time, members making the cancellation will be charged.

1. Please give up your court at the allotted time.”Just one more point” is not fair to others. Everyone’s time is precious.
2. Please walk around the courts to enter the court you have been assigned.
3. Please do not talk across courts.
4. Please wait until starting time to enter courts – early arrivals are very distracting.
5. Use proper tennis etiquette at all times.
