Regarding Gov. Murphy’s Statement on May 18th

We wanted to address the statement by Governor Murphy on May 18th.  He stated that OUTDOOR private tennis clubs can open.  While we wish this pertained to us, it does not.  We will continue to be closed until the state allows us to open back up with the proper guidelines for the safety of our staff and members.

Regarding refunds and credits: We understand that people are eager to be refunded in this uncertain time.  We were one of the first industries forced to close by the state.  Until the state allows us to re-open we are not able to process any refunds or credits.  We are following the stay at home orders.

Seasonal Tennis Update

Dear Seasonal Tennis Captain,

I hope you this finds you and your family safe and healthy.
As you are all aware, the Club’s operations were deemed unessential by State officials and accordingly, we have been closed since March 16th. We have received a few inquiries and messages relating to the Club’s closing and how we will be handling the remaining court time for the season.
I wanted to personally reach out to you and let you know that we have been evaluating the current stay at home order along with our advisors and other resources, in order to address the questions and concerns that have been raised regarding our contract  time.  We are committed to come up with a plan that is fair and equitable to all involved.
We certainly appreciate your patience as we work through this difficult situation we look forward to the day that we can re-open and see you all again.
Best regards,
Tony Posella
