 GENERAL TENNIS RULES 
  
Tennis Court Reservations
All members must register with the Member Services Desk before entering a court area(this includes outdoor hard and clay courts). Membership number and type must be given when making all reservations. The names of all persons playing (if known) should be given at the time reservations are made. Indoor and outdoor courts may be reserved up to seven days in advance.
Permanent or seasonal/contract time may be pre-booked for the indoor season, please contact the Director Tennis Operations, Andrea Calvert-Sanders, for more information. Members contracting for pre-booked time are financially obligated for the entire amount due. This program is set up on an annual basis with the previous year’s seasonal time holder receiving first right for specific times. However, if completed and signed contracts are not returned in a timely manner, specific court times cannot be guaranteed.
Tennis group lessons may be scheduled by contacting the Director of Tennis Operations. All court and lesson fees must be paid or signed for prior to entering courts. Private lessons should be scheduled with the specific tennis teaching professional.
Junior Walk-on
Junior Tennis Members may walk-on. Junior “walk on” is defined as having the ability to access a court a maximum of one hour or less in advance at no charge (only if courts are available). Those players without “walk on” privileges will pay for their share of the court fee. “Walk on” courts are limited to one hour. If courts are available, additional time will be allowed in one-hour increments after players have checked back with the Member Services Desk. CLICK HERE for more detailed information about our walk-on policy.
Clay Courts
Clay courts open at 8:00am during the season. The courts are closed for afternoon maintenance between the hours of 12:30pm - 2:30pm every day. Members should not attempt to alter or turn off the sprinkler system. The Tennis Director, or in his absence, the manager on duty, will determine if the clay courts are playable after a rain.
Cancellations
Court and lesson reservations must be cancelled 24 hours in advance to avoid being charged the appropriate fees.
Membership
Membership contracts are available and are paid on a monthly basis. For more information, please contact the Membership Department. Junior memberships are available for players participating in Five Seasons junior programs.
Food and drinks are not allowed on the courts. Water is allowed on the court in closed containers only.
The use of profanity, loud noises, racquet throwing and any form of misconduct is not permitted.
Proper tennis apparel(including shirts) must be worn at all times on the courts. Customary men and women’s tennis attire without a collar is acceptable. Cut-offs, jeans, muscle shirts, bare mid-rifts and swimsuits are unacceptable.
Running shoes or black/dark-soled shoes are not permitted on the courts. No running shoes on clay courts (smooth soled shoes only).
Members must cease playing immediately at the end of their allotted court time. Conversely, the next court occupants must wait in the lobby (or outside the court) until the proper time.
Only Five Seasons club professionals and teaching staff may give lessons or clinics.

Five Seasons Junior Programs
Our goal is to offer clinics that reach out to all ages and abilities of players. The junior program aims to provide productive learning sessions in a structured and fun atmosphere. Based on the P.A. System created by PA Nilhagen, our Five Seasons Director of Tennis (with over 40 years of teaching experience), children of all ages can excel at the game of tennis.
