Tennis Policies


New Policies, effective August 17, 2015

  • All members must check in at the desk. A fence will be installed from the corner of Court 4 to the wooden fence. Access to the upper courts will be on the walkways.
  • During Peak hours (9-11:30 am) and with the beginning of CSRA and USTA leagues, a member may only reserve one court. If you have groups with many players (which we love and appreciate), courts can be scheduled with Brian during non-Peak hours.
  • Please provide the 4 names who are playing. If you can't provide 4 names, we will not reserve a court, unless, you provide 3 names, and your 4th is a "guest." We will charge your account $10, and then, if you end up with a member as the 4th, we will remove the charge. It is PRC's legal responsibility to know who is on our property.
  • All guests must sign in. A guest may come 1 time a month and a member may have 2 guests a month. (Please talk to PRC for special circumstances.). The $10 guest fee will be charged to your account. The shop is instructed not to take cash or credit card for guest fees.
  • Brian, Dave and Gail will be walking around to help or answer any questions.
  • PRC is proud that for 6 mornings a week, we have 17 courts playable by 8:00. If you start at 7:30, your court may not get groomed. Not grooming leads to big problems down the road....please don't go on the courts before 8.
  • PRC has very respectful maintenance workers and they are hesitant to ask people to move so they can do their jobs. Sunday mornings have become very problematic. Technically, the facility is closed until 12. If you are playing on Sunday morning, and they are attempting to groom courts, please offer to move or just stop a few minutes and let them look after your court.

Tennis Court Reservations

  • Courts may be reserved two days (48 hours) in advance, after 8:30 a.m., (after 12:00 p.m. Sundays). No reservations will be taken through the voice mail system.
  • Reservations will be held for 20 minutes after the scheduled playing time unless the shop is contacted of a delay.
  • Juniors may reserve hard or soft courts from 12 – 7 pm Monday – Saturday. On Sunday they may reserve hard courts only from 12 – 7 pm. They may walk on at any time if courts are available. They must yield to adults before 12 and after 7 pm.
  • Players may not switch from an assigned court without permission from the PRC staff.
  • Players must yield to the oncoming reservation regardless of where they are in the match, except for league play.
  • Reservations for additional play on the same day may be made as soon as the first reservation is finished.
  • Special reservation policies may be implemented from time to time to accommodate heavy play. Special reservations will be up to PRC management.
  • Reservations for night play must be made no later than 5:00 p.m. of the day play is desired to ensure that the Clubhouse will be staffed and lights available.

Guests

  • All guests must sign in. A guest may come 1 time a month and a member may have 2 guests a month. (Please talk to us for special circumstances.). The $10 guest fee will be charged to your account.
  • Out of town guests are not covered by this policy.  There is no charge and no limit.  This is intended for out of town house guests.
  • Any guest brought to PRC for the first time in the current year will have to fill out an information sheet.  All we need is their name and address (email or mailing) so we can notify them after their 5th visit.
  • If you bring a guest before or after Pro Shop hours, it is your responsibility to register them ahead of time.
  • If you have a family membership, make sure that your spouse and/or children are familiar with the new rules.

  • Players may not wear running shoes on the clay or any shoes which leave colored marks on the hard courts. When in doubt, please ask the staff.
  • Bathing suits are prohibited on the courts or in the pro shop. PRC employees will have discretionary authority to regulate proper attire should the question arise.

  • You may reserve the ball machine 24 hours in advance. The ball machine can only be used on Court 1 to minimize disturbance of other players.
