Update: Summer 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.

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.
