All tennis activities at JPTC continue with our commitment to player health and safety: currently a four-player max per court... Staggered court times to support social distancing... Call-ahead reservations... Ongoing disinfecting by staff throughout the day... Professional cleaning each night.

A few reminders for members and guests...

  • Provide full names and contact info of each player when calling to reserve courts or schedule lessons.

  • Sanitize or thoroughly wash your hands before or, if necessary, upon entering JPTC.

  • Bring your own water bottle & towel. Use the hands-free bottle filler when necessary.

  • Provide your own tennis balls for general play (people from the same household may share). Ball machine practice balls will be provided by JPTC. Teaching pros will provide tennis balls for lessons.

  • Please consider wearing a face mask while in common areas (not necessary on court).

Thanks, stay well, and hope to see you soon!​
