Seasonal / Permanent courts
We offer seasonal tennis and racquetball reservations (37 weeks) which ensures the same court each week at a reduced court fee. The permanent court time commits the member for that court reservation for the entire indoor season. Permanent court time may be offered for sale at the request of the member. If it is sold, the member will not be billed. Seasonal courts may be booked at any time during the year for the remainder of the season.
One Time Only Courts
One time only court reservations may be made up to seven days in advance. There will be no charge for reserved court time if cancellations are received at least 24 hours in advance. “No shows” or court time cancelled less than 24 hours in advance will be charged at full court rate. We will make every effort to sell court time available due to cancellation within 24 hours. If it is sold, member will not be billed.
The Club provides locker rooms for members and their guests, complete with towel service, and amenities. A lock for daily locker use may be obtained at no charge by presenting your car keys or drivers license at the front desk. Please use only club provided locks on the lockers. All other locks are subject to removal at the members expense. There are a number of lockers available for rent for the season. Large lockers are $50/year, small lockers are $25/year.
Payment of Fees
Payments may be made through monthly in-house billing, cash, or personal check. Returned checks will be subject to an $35 charge. Monthly billing payments are due upon receipt. Visa and MasterCard are accepted for pro shop purchases and first time memberships only. All credit card purchases are subject to a $20 minimum.
Memberships are neither transferable nor refundable, and must be paid prior to use of the facility. Memberships are year-to-date (membership is good for 12 months from the month of enrollment).

During the summer months, the club typically operates under reduced hours. See posted hours.
Guests of members are welcome. However, to assure our members privileges, guests of Club members are charged a nominal fee of $6 per visits. A guest must be accompanied on the court by at least one member. A person may be a guest at the Club up to three times a year. After three visits, we welcome guests to join the Club. Guests must sign in at the front desk before playing.
Complete Pro Shop
The Club owned and operated pro shop provides a wide selection of racquets, balls, shoes, and clothing at competitive prices. The shop offers twenty-four hour service for stringing and gripping of all racquets. “Demo” racquets may be reserved in advance for a $5 fee per time, which is applicable toward the purchase of a racquet from the Club.
Soft drinks, juice, bottled water and snacks are sold in vending machines. Beer and wine are sold at the front desk. The club provides complimentary ice and coffee.
The Club requests a dress code appropriate to the activity and the club house atmosphere. Shoes and shirts must be worn at all times. Shoes must be specifically designed for tennis and racquetball. No black-soled or running shoes will be permitted as they damage the courts.
Lost And Found
Members may inquire at the front desk for items left at the Club. The Club cannot accept responsibility for items lost or stolen.
The Club provides a supervised play room for children ages 12 months to 7 years. (The Club will not be responsible for changing diapers.) Child care is available from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, opening day until the middle of May. The fee is $4 per child per visit for members and $6 per child per visit for non-members. Children under 13 must be under direct supervision of an adult at all times. We find that unsupervised or unattended children of any age can be a disturbance and distraction to other members. No child may go onto the courts except to play tennis or racquetball. Children under 10 years may not use the tennis or racquetball courts unless accompanied by an adult.
Private Party Rentals
Members may reserve all or portions of the Club facilities for Friday or Saturday night parties. The design of the building lends itself to enjoyable large or small parties with the availability of 3, 4, 7, or 10 tennis courts, 5 racquetball courts, 3 wallyball courts, or combination of these. Our management staff can assist you with your beverage needs. Our liquor license prohibits members and guests from bringing their own alcoholic beverages of any kind into the Club. All parties are booked through the main office.
Please park only in marked parking spaces in the Racquet Club lot. Please do not park in the fire lane. Additional parking is available on the south side of the building. Cars left overnight are subject to towing.
The Racquet Club was built by John and Jeanne Hendrix in 1970 with the goal of creating the best indoor tennis facility available. Originally opened with eight tennis courts, improvements over the years have created an unparalleled indoor facility with ten tennis courts and five racquetball courts. Whether you are a newcomer or a founding member, we feel this is your club and we are here to serve you. We offer varied and innovative programs in tennis, racquetball, and walleyball. As a family owned business, we strive to create a pleasant, clean, well maintained facility. Our professional and knowledgeable staff is eager to assist you. We are proud of our club, its reputation for excellence, and its members. We hope you feel the same and enjoy our facility.
