Tennis Center Etiquette Reminder
We kindly remind all of our tennis players to please reframe from entering the tennis courts until your scheduled time begins. If you are early, please wait in the Tennis Clubhouse until one minute before your court time and then proceed to your court. In order to create a courteous environment we ask players to please end at the specified time. Do not finish a set or play one more point so that the next scheduled group has the opportunity to start on time.
Senior Citizen Tennis Time
The Department of Recreation and Parks is happy to announce that “Senior Citizen Time” has returned at the Garden City Tennis Center. Senior residents can now take advantage of the $20 per hour per court rate on the newly expanded time period of Monday through Friday 7:00am -6:00pm.

Please note that there will be NO youth or adult tennis lessons the entire week of February 20th due to Presidents Week. Tennis lessons will resume the week of February 27th.
