Courts closed

The courts are currently closed due to the recent heavy rains and the sub-freezing temperatures. All the moisture is now frozen in the courts and when the days warm up the courts will turn to mud for a few days. It's not clear if the courts will reopen this season. In any event, the last day of the season will be Sunday, Nov 30th, if not before.

Thanksgiving hours: if the courts are playable on Thanksgiving, they will be open from 10am to 3pm. 

2015 registration for group lessons is now available for both juniors and adults for the spring, summer and fall session..

Late fall hours: The courts are currently open 8am until dark, weather permitting.

Winter indoor junior tennis: RCTA is partnering with Advantage Tennis Clubs to provide winter indoor tennis at Columbia Prep on W 93rd from January to March for players 4 to 7 year's old. Details and registration here.
