Winter Adult Leagues


In addition to tennis and pickleball, we also have three racquetball courts for you to enjoy! Whether you're just wanting to drop-on and play with friends or compete in an organized league, there are opportunities for you. We have two leagues to choose from. One of the leagues meets on Monday evenings from 5pm - 6pm and the other one runs on Tuesday evenings from 5pm - 7pm. Each league runs for 12 weeks. Leagues are $40 for members and $60 for non-members. Members also receive a $10 discount if they sign-up on or before the first day of their league. The winner of each league gets to play in the next league session for FREE!

Also, to reserve a court in advance, it is $7 per hour. This reservation would need to be made preferably 5 days in advance, or , members can use their walk-on court time privileges which gives them FREE court time! Please contact Dan Dietrich for more detailed information about our racquetball program. Dan can be reached at (269) 422-7159.
