Please remember that the courts belong to all members and these rules are intended to ensure that all members have equal opportunity to use and enjoy them.

1. All members of the club, their immediate families, and guests are entitled to the use of the facilities. Guests MUST be accompanied by a member at all times.
2. THE COURT RESERVATION SYSTEM IS ACTIVE YEAR-ROUND. Members are not required to sign up for a court in advance. However, if you walk onto an available court to play and a member arrives stating that s/he signed up for the court online, then the court belongs to the member who made the reservation.

  • Reservations can only be made one day in advance starting at 7:30am.  Reservations can be made for one hour per MEMBERSHIP, not one hour per member.  All reservations are to be made on the hour.  A doubles group requiring one court may reserve two hours of court time by listing the names of two members in the group.  If a group requires two courts, then two different members must make a reservation.  Groups using two courts are asked to sign up for one of the front courts (either #1 or #2) and one of the back courts (either #3 or #4).  Members playing singles may reserve one hour of court time per membership.
  • On the day of play, if a member has signed up for one hour and time is still available, one additional hour may be reserved.

3. Failure to use the court within 10 minutes of the reserved time will result in forfeiture of the hour and the court may then be used by anyone waiting for a court or already playing.

4.  If all courts are in play, a waiting member may claim a court on the hour.  If members are waiting for a court, those playing will be asked to limit their play to one hour.

5.  Members are asked to have their membership card with them whenever they are on the courts in case they are questioned about being a member.
6.  Conventional tennis attire is required at all times.  No black-soled tennis shoes unless they are labeled “non-marking.”
7.  Children under the age of 10 MUST be accompanied by an adult.

8. NO pets, skateboards, inline skates or scooters are permitted on the courts.
