NEW JTCC Update – Open For Limited Play

 
Dear JTCC Members,
 
It’s been a fantastic first week of play at JTCC with so many of you back on the courts. Now we have even more good news for next week!
 
  • Play On Clay!  We are opening four clay courts in addition to the nine hard courts that are currently available.
  • Reserve Up To Two Hours Of Play!  Book your court time and private or semi-private lessons online.
  • Doubles Play Permitted With Conditions!  Doubles play will be permitted with a maximum of “two households per court”. Partners must be living in the same household. Parent and child, husband and wife, siblings, and housemates qualify as partners.
  • Balls For Purchase!  Balls will be available for purchase from the JTCC attendant monitoring the courts. Balls will be charged to your JTCC account or credit card on file.
Reminder to use two cans of new balls when you play with initials on your balls and pick up your opponent’s balls only with your racquet.
  • Racquet Stringing Available!  For drop off of racquets before 5 pm daily at the rack on the back porch of JTCC, racquets will be restrung and returned to the rack within 48 hours. Instructions will be posted at the rack for labeling your racquet(s) with proper information. Stringing charges will be billed to your club account or credit card on file.
Racquets dropped off after 5 pm may require an additional day to be completed. 
 
Following the successful introduction of “Reopening Rules” this week, we ask that everyone follow the same rules next week except as modified above. 
  
As a reminder, although Gov. Hogan announced that today the State of Maryland will permit the reopening of many facilities, both Prince George’s County and Montgomery County are not yet following the Phase 1 protocols for opening clubs and facilities. Therefore, our club facilities will not open at this time. 
 
We are eagerly looking forward to the next stage of our reopening. For now, we just want you to enjoy your tennis!  We have attached the “Reopening Rules” below for your review.
 
The JTCC Team
 
P.S. It is going to be warmer now, so don’t forget your water and towel!
