Reserving Court Time

Court time may be reserved by any Club member up to eight (8) days in advance by clicking HERE

New players must first register at "Reserve My Court." First click on Login at the top of the page, then "Create an account" choose Isles Yacht Club as the facility. Contact the office or RMC Coordinator Reg Brooks for the access code or if you need any assistance.

If you are unable to use the court you reserved, please cancel your reservation.



Ball Machine 

Reserve the Ball Machine by writing "Ball Machine Reservation" in the notes of your court reservation on Reserve My Court. 

 

Court Cleaning

After every use, players should groom the courts by sweeping with the drag brushes. To the extent possible, please sweep lengthwise along the side, base, and service lines.

One useful method is to follow a coil pattern which begins at the net and goes around the outside of each court along the fence circling inward until ending in the middle of the service line. This will help keep the Har-Tru evenly distributed and minimalizes disturbing the tapes.

Additionally, the first users of a court each day should drag the court before use with the wire brush to remove mildew and agitate the surface, using the pattern described above.

Court Maintenance

The courts will be in heavy use through the season and that makes court maintenance a challenge. If you observe any safety issue, such as "raised" tapes, please report the problem to either the Dockmaster or the front office.

Tennis Courts open at 7:30 a.m. from May to October and 8:00 a.m. from November to April and can be booked on Reserve My Court. The courts close at 10 p.m.
