Thank you for your understanding and cooperation with the precautionary measures listed below:

  4. Bring or purchase your own water – there will be no access to water at the facility (you can purchase water or Gatorade the same way you purchase balls).
  5. Please be considerate of others and pick up all of your trash, balls, etc. before leaving the facility to help avoid others from touching potentially contaminated items.
  6. Avoid touching benches, fences, nets, etc. We ask that all tennis bags be placed on the ground and not on benches.
