Clay Tennis Court Update: Rain Rain, Go Away!

RSC’s goal every year is to open the Outdoor Clay Courts as close to May 1st as possible. For that to happen the weather needs to cooperate with us. We are wishing for sunny dry weather, so that we can spread the clay and get the courts prepared. The delayed spring melt combined with the rainy forecast, will likely push us back a few days.

To keep up-to-date on the progress of our Clay Court Preparation and Opening, we recommend you follow us on Social Media – Facebook, Instagram, Twitter  (click on the link that suits you best)- as we will be updating regularly!
