The Clay Courts are now closed until the Spring of 2020.
The hard courts are available in the off-season, weather permitting. There will be no pro on duty or regular court upkeep (leaf removal, snow removal, etc.) Members choosing to play on them will be responsible for assuring their court is playable.
Come to a Tennis Social Next Season! Great fun with round-robin play, refreshment and fellowship 2019 was our best social season ever. Click HERE for the 2020 schedule.
Clay court grooming tip. Clay courts are very sensitive organisms, easily damaged if the base surface is gouged. We ask that you please repair any deep ball or shoe marks that dig into the court surface. Thanks!

Donate Your Old Tennis Racquets to OSRC. Help our “Loaner” Program. Do you have old racquets that the kids have outgrown? Others you have replaced with newer ones? We want to have a supply of “Loaner” racquets and balls available for people to check out so they can try their hand at tennis during breaks from swimming. We hope this will stimulate more interest among our junior members to explore more formal participation in our great tennis program. Just drop them at the pool reception desk or the tennis shack (See Pro hours below). All sizes welcome.
REMINDER: Court 3 is lined for both tennis and Pickleball. Pickleball is an increasingly popular sport. Spread the word. For more info see:

Need help reserving a court online? Here are some step-by-step instructions. Players with reservations have priority for access when a court is in use.
PROPER CARE OF THE CLAY COURTS: It's very important that the clay courts be properly groomed after play. This not only assures that the court is ready for the next players, it helps properly distribute the Har-Tru coating, avoiding loss of material to the playing surface. Here is the recommended dragging pattern. Please follow it when grooming the clay courts after you play.
Be Sure to fill any deep gouges in the playing surface.
Read the Club Tennis Rules. A copy is on file in the tennis shack. Please familiarize yourself with these rules.
