Outdoor Court Renovation Update


Our Outdoor Tennis Court resurfacing is scheduled to begin on August 16; however, the date may change slightly depending on when materials arrive. Installation should not take long and we hope to have the surface open for Member usage by Sunday, August 27. During that time all outdoor courts will be blocked off and court maintenance and etiquette seminars for the new playing surface will be offered to Members. Additional updates will be provided in the next couple weeks’ newsletters.

Save the Date!


Our annual US Open Party will be held on September 9. Stay tuned for more exciting details. This will be our best US Open Party to date! 
 

Court Etiquette Reminder


  • Please remember to keep noise levels at a respectable level so it doesn’t distract players on adjacent courts. 
  • When walking across the courts it’s important to go behind the curtains instead of walking through the middle of the courts.
