How to Register for Programs

To sign up for any adult or junior tennis program, you may register in person at the courts or fill out the form online. A parent must sign a waiver before their child is permitted to participate in any Junior tennis program. If you sign up in person, payment may be made at that time. Otherwise, payment is due on the first day of class.
