Racquet Sports Update
Weekly Competitive Play Program
With USTA League tennis currently postponed now is a great time to get some practice matches in to keep your competitive game sharp!
If you are a 3.0 or 3.5 player and are looking for a weekly competitive game we have the program for you.
We will offer an open sign up program for both Men's and Women's doubles match play.
Sign up with a partner and we will match you with a different team to compete against each week.
For new members or for people who don't have a partner, we can help create a partnership for you.
Program runs from Tuesday, June 9th through July 15th
(Length of program may be modified based on participation level)
Women's Match Play Tuesday 10:30am
Men's Match Play Wed 10:30am
Preregistration is required through the Pro Shop (843) 768-7543 and names will be taken on a first come first serve basis. You may sign up with or without a partner. A limited number of spots will be available so we encourage reserving your spot early.
Sign up is for the duration of the program-not weekly.
Deadline to register is Friday, June 5th
Look forward to seeing you on the courts!
mer Two Tier Court Booking System
As a reminder, we will be using the summer two tier sys
tem for court reservations during peak morning times beginning Monday, June 8th. This will allow us to maximize efficiency with member play and better utilize our morning court capacity during the hottest months of the year. To ensure two hours of play reservations can be booked in advance at 8:30am and 10:30am for morning court times from June 8th through the end of August. You may reserve a court after 8:30am but the court will only be guaranteed until 10:30am.
We appreciate all of your efforts in organizing social play, particularly during our period of restrictions. Our goal is to work with our organizers to grow our social program, introduce and involve more new members and better utilize morning play here at the Racquet Club.
In compliance with current health guidelines and recommendations, the following actions have been implemented at the Racquet Club to avoid cross contamination and shared equipment.
Update: New Pickleball Guidelines!
Moving forward Pickleball courts will remain open and
doubles play will be allowed. Members may reserve individual courts for play through the Pro Shop. (843) 768-7543

Please continue to follow these guidelines that have been implemented over the past several weeks:
For each court assignment, EACH player must bring a NEW can of balls. When serving, each player will use their own can of balls, all other players do not touch the tennis ball during that game. Each can rotates with the server. Balls will be marked with permanent marker or equivalent to identify specific can being used for each game.
Social distancing is to be observed on court at all times, before play begins AND on change-overs. Avoid congregating around the benches or net before beginning play and during changeovers.
Although we all wish to enjoy the social aspects of Racquet Sports, no lingering after play. Please leave the Club property immediately upon completion of play.
Rental equipment including racquets, paddles, balls and ball machine are not available.
Towels are not in circulation.
Court water fountains are not operational.
We encourage members bring their own water bottles/containers
