Guest Policy For Non-Member Participation

All non-member participation is governed by our Guest Policy (click here to read).

During the peak season months of July-August, available spots in our daily ‘Organized Play’ are scarce, so we ask members to host their guests during less crowded afternoon times. The SignUpGenius tool will be used for sign up purposes on a daily basis, and members always have priority over guests. Guests may be denied participation in cases where member sign ups have filled all courts in advance.

Unless otherwise approved, any members extending guest privileges must accompany the recipient and ensure they wear proper court shoes and attire.  The member is responsible to pay the appropriate daily guest fee of $10 for non-family, or $5 for immediate family (brothers, sisters, adult children). In either case, the limit per season is ten occurrences. 

Guest fees payments can be sent to the Club via PayPal by using this link (or sent to our mailing address USPS). Alternatively, the Club Treasurer can invoice the inviting member at the end of the season.
