And, as of Monday, July 13th, we're adding face masks to our indoor tennis gear.


In accordance with Dane County's Executive Order #8, face masks / coverings are required inside John Powless Tennis Center - including on our indoor courts. Thank you for making this extra effort on behalf of public health while continuing to enjoy our great game of tennis.

Face masks are not required on our outdoor clay or hard courts, but social-distancing health and safety efforts to stem the spread of Covid remain: four-player max per court... staggered court time starts... call-ahead reservations... ongoing disinfecting by staff throughout the day... professional cleaning each night.

A few additional reminders for members and guests...

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

  • 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.

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