Contract Reservation

Click here to return to Tennis Court Information

A contract reservation is court time booked and guaranteed for the duration of an academic year 
Those interested in contract time should email to inquire about availability. If your preferred time is not available we can add you to a waiting list.  

Each contract group must have a ‘captain’ who is the primary contact for the group.  The captain must be a card holding recreation member during the academic year to maintain the court.  Any other users of a contract block outside of the captain can be members of any duration (day pass, month pass, etc.). All users must swipe in or show a day membership to the tennis attendant on the 4th floor prior to playing.

Locker Rooms
Pizzitola Locker Room 124 (Men) and 220 (Women) are available for recreation use.  Please be aware that during varsity events these rooms may be used for visiting teams.  When in use for visiting teams you may use recreation locker rooms in the OMAC or the Nelson Center.

Varsity Use of the Indoor Tennis Courts
Varsity use takes priority at the indoor tennis courts.  During the weekday the varsity block is always 230pm-7pm.  The varsity team will most often play matches on the weekends.  Please review the following info about varsity use:                                                    

  • When the weather is pleasant, in most cases, matches will be outside and the indoor courts will be open for contract use
  • During inclement weather (and the winter months) the tennis teams will play matches indoors
  • Weekend pricing is lower due to anticipated time lost for these matches 
  • We do not reimburse for time lost due to varsity matches on weekends 
  • We try to determine 24-48 hrs prior to a match whether they will be inside or outside and the attendants schedule will reflect their decision.  However sometimes last minute decisions have to be made, so court time may be removed with little or no notice.
