Contact us with any issues.

Tennis Court Reservations

Hours & Rules


The courts are open from 6:30AM to 8:30PM daily from mid May to mid October, weather and conditions permitting.  The official court schedule can be found on-line and is regulated by the Tennis Committee and Club Manager.  Reservations for courts 1-6 can be made up to 7 days in advance while Courts 7 & 8 are reserved for lessons.  When not in use, members may play on these courts on a first come, first served basis with the understanding that lessons have priority.  Seasonal programming and special events scheduled by the Tennis Committee shall supersede the tennis reservation system.  Advance notice of such special events shall be given and every effort will be made to leave at least two courts available for member reservations.

  1. Please reserve your court in advance.  Unreserved courts are first come, first served, but reservations take priority.  Court reservations left unclaimed are forfeited after 15 minutes.
  2. Decisions on court playability will be made by the Club Manager.
  3. Proper tennis shoes must be worn on the courts.
  4. Please wear shirts and appropriate tennis attire.  No bathing suits allowed on the courts.
  5. Tennis courts may not be crossed while games are in progress.
  6. Children not playing tennis are not allowed on the courts.
  7. Courts must be swept after playing.

Tennis Lessons

BTC is home to some of the best Tennis Pros in the state!

For some of us, rapid improvement is the desire, while for others, just being able to hit with a pro is a blast. Our staff is available to customize you or your child’s tennis training – from a single lesson to a summer-long strategy. If you have specific goals our staff can address those in a customized program. We can also accommodate USTA team training, special tennis events, and corporate/group tennis activities and parties.

PRIVATE LESSONS ARE GUARANTEED! If you are not satisfied with our the level of instruction we will refund you the full amount. Pre-paid lessons/clinics expire at the end of the current season.

Racket Stringing


DO YOU NEED YOUR RACKET RESTRUNG?

Strings wear down from play, lose their elasticity and tension, and ultimately if left too long can have a negative impact on your play. A general rule of thumb is that you should replace your strings as many times per year as you play per week. If you play three times per week then you should restring your racket about three times per year.

Racket Stringing options and prices

To get your racket restrung, fill out a form located on the tennis board and leave it with the front office.
