From Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend all white attire is required.  No reservations are required. Sign in when you arrive. Courts are allocated in 1 hour increments on a 'first come, first served' basis.  For sepcial events courts may be reserved. Check the Calender.    Check the court status if the weather seems doubtful.
 
BALANCED PROGRAMS AND OPEN COURT USE
In response to all our members desires and needs, we will operate our program and teams in a manner so as to have courts available for open play at all times, with the exception of limited events which will be approved, designated and communicated in advance. Our goal is to have four courts available for open play at all times, except as noted.
 
CLUB CHAMPIONSHIPS
This event, open to all members, is a highlight of the tennis season. It is a fun way to move into the fall, getting more tennis in before thoughts turn to paddle. In order to provide opportunity for increased participation in our traditional intra-club championship tournament, the period of play will be expanded this year. Scott will have signup sheets posted in mid-August. Matches will start after Labor Day and continue through September with the finals played on the first Saturday in October. Intermediate milestones for each bracket will be set to maintain a pace of progress. The categories will include Men’s, Senior Men’s, Women’s, and Mixed singles and doubles competition. The format of play is single elimination. Please watch the boards for sign-ups and information.
 
YOUTH PROGRAM AND TEAMS

The Junior Tennis Program will again be led by Cam Hopkins and his staff of assistant pros during the summer of 2015.  This junior tennis program will focus on a few specific areas in order to reach its goal: develop a love for the game of tennis in all membership children by providing a safe, structured teaching and playing environment.
