The ball machine is available for reservations. Reservation times will be dependent on court availability and follow new guidelines for COVID-19 prevention. To keep members and guests safe, the Racquet Sports have adopted the following guidelines for the use of the ball machine:

- Reservations MUST be made through phone or email to tennis@discoverseabrook.com
- Each reservation will trigger a 30minute block before the next reservation time is available.
- Players MUST RETURN the remote control to the staff and MUST LEAVE the hoppers on the court after reservation time is over. Staff will sanitize equipment before the next reservation.
- Players MUST AVOID touching the balls at all times, SERVE practice WILL NOT be permitted.

If the guidelines are not followed, the Racquet Sports will hold the right to once again make the ball machine unavailable for reservations.  We appreciate your cooperation on keeping the community safe at this time.

Su m mer Two Tier Tennis Court Booking

As a reminder, we will be using the summer two tier sys tem for court reservations during peak morning times. 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 through the end of August.

We appreciate all of your efforts in organizing social play! Our goal is to work with our organizers to grow our social program, maintain safe regulations, introduce and involve more new members, and to better utilize morning play here at the Racquet Club.

In compliance with current health guidelines and recommendations, please read below for the Guidelines Under COVID-19 at the Racquet Club to avoid cross contamination and shared equipment.

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.
