Playing It Safe
We have developed special COVID-19 procedures based on State, CDC, USTA, and member feedback to ensure safe play for the community. Face coverings are required at all times except during singles play. Hand sanitizer is provided at each court. Clubhouse occupancy is limited to two people at one time. We use a reservation system to limit gathering sizes and allow for contact tracing.
We Have A Waiting List
If you would like to be added, complete the New Member Application which can be found in the pull-down menu under "Home" at the top of this page. It's not necessary to pay at this time. If a space becomes available, notification will be sent via email from info@CharlesRiverTennisClub.com. Recipients will have 3 days to pay in order to secure a spot. Thanks for your interest.
On clay, points and games are not won by power and speed alone. Rallies typically last longer as the pace is less slam-bang. Clay tends to teach the player needed patience and discipline. The clay surface helps players to learn how to build their points by working the angles and using more of the whole court. Your overall game becomes more complete on clay, and translates to more success on the harder surfaces. Clay court movements are more effective and less strenuous. The softer surface is easier on the body and reduces risk of injury.
Our club setting is park-like, court temperatures are cooler, and shoes and balls hold up longer. Matches on clay are more interesting, more entertaining, and more fun - both for the players and the observers.
Enjoy our approach to open tennis where you can visit the club whenever you want within the indicated windows. You will then be worked into an unscheduled doubles match (or set) without undue waiting time.
