Good News!

We are pleased to announce the reopening of the TENNIS COURTS at Palisades Tennis Club on Monday, May 4th starting at 8:00 am.

As one of the fortunate businesses that are allowed to reopen, but with the Covid-19 crisis still lingering, we know the importance of continuing to follow certain guidelines that have been set forth by numerous government agencies in order to keep the public safe.

With that in mind, we have developed the attached guidelines to stay in compliance and to help keep our club members and our staff safe and healthy.  These guidelines will change from time to time as new information about the crisis is received.

As we reopen, club hours will be Monday through Sunday, 7 days a week from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm.  Reservation hours are 7 days a week from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.  Reservation lines will reopen this Sunday, May 3rd at 8:00 am (please be patient).  The courts are open to Members Only.  Members will enter through the two side gates, as the front door to the clubhouse will be locked.  As stated in the guidelines, please do not arrive more than 5 minutes before your scheduled match time.  When entering and exiting the side gate, stay to the far right (look for markers on the ground).

The clubhouse is closed to all traffic other than the use of the lavatories and sinks in the Men’s and Ladies’ Locker Rooms. Members needing to use the restroom facilities will be required to wear a mask upon entering the clubhouse.  Only one member will be allowed in the locker room at a time and everyone must enter and exit the clubhouse through the double doors at the receptionist desk.  The back doors to the locker rooms shall remain closed.  Showers are not allowed and no toiletries will be available.  IF YOU USE THE RESTROOM BEFORE RETURNING TO THE COURTS, PLEASE BE SURE TO WASH YOUR HANDS FOR AT LEAST 20 SECONDS USING SOAP AND HOT WATER, per CDC guidelines.  Also, make sure to bring your own court towels as courts towels are not available at this time. Hand sanitizer will be available at the net posts on every court but we encourage bringing your own sanitizer as well.

Court Reservation hours are 8:00 am – 4:00 pm.  Reservations MUST be made in order to use a court.  RESERVATIONS CAN ONLY BE MADE THE DAY BEFORE FOR THE FOLLOWING DAYS’ PLAY.  Reservations can be made for Singles, Doubles or Mixed Doubles. No guests and no drop-in tennis are allowed at this time, this includes Challenge Court and Serve Aces.

Once match play is complete, you must leave the premises immediately unless you are picking up a take-out order from the cafe.  There is no congregating or socializing allowed at this time.

During our hiatus we were able to complete many projects, improvements and upgrades; however we still have few more to finalize.  One of those final projects is a completely new parking lot, which will require at least one week of no parking in the Palisades parking lot.  We have made arrangements with the Hyatt to utilize their currently unused valet lot for parking and all members would enter the Palisades property by walking across the golf course to the back gate at the clubhouse patio.  We will follow up with more definite information once the project has been scheduled.

We are excited to welcome all of you back home to Palisades.  We now look forward to the next phase where hopefully we will all get to congregate and socialize with one another.
