To keep informed of the Four Seasons tennis program, please make use of the following ideas.
The Fall/Winter and Winter/Spring sessions have prime time hours which run from 5-9p.m. Monday thru Thursday. All random court players are charged full price court charges during prime time.
Play Package is a special program that allows member to play as often as they want during non-prime time hours without paying court costs. The package cost is $30/month with a six-month commitment.
Permanent court time (PCT) is a unique opportunity to reserve a tennis court time at the same time every week for that session.
Members will be billed in advance for their portion of the court fee. This amount to the hourly court fee, times the number of weeks in that session, divided by the number of members registered to that court. All fees will be billed in the first month of the session. These fees are then due by the 31st of the following month. Members who purchase a non-prime time play package, will not be billed for court fees, unless the permanent court time is during prime time.
The Club will attempt to honor but does not guarantee requests for specific courts.
The court captain is responsible for furnishing a schedule with all names, in writing, of all members of the group and for notifying the club of any charges in that group. All players must sign a PCT agreement contract and be members of Four Seasons Health Club as well as be current of all previous PCT billing charges.
Please note that if any changes in the group occur after billing has been issued, the members of the group must handle any financial adjustments.
The club reserves the right, on occasion, to assign PCT holders to alternate courts.
All PCT participants will be allowed a “one-time change” during each session.
Renewals which guarantee that you may keep your current PCT for the following session, must be received by a specific date that will be determined by the Tennis Director.
Tennis leagues will be offered throughout the entire year. You must be a member of Four Seasons Health Club to participate in any league.
Four Seasons Tennis offers a full-service pro shop. The latest merchandise/equipment, racquet maintenance, and restringing are available.
