Want Even More Extra Games? Use RSC Player Forum to find Tennis Players.

It’s NEW, give it a Try!  You asked how to find people to play tennis with, and we listened.

RSC Player Forum is yet another way to find compatible tennis players (and pick-up games). 

To make it extra easy for you to use, we have created a “social login” – which means you can create a new password …or use your social media logins, so you don’t need to remember another password!

Here’s what you’re looking for on our website when you CLICK HERE for Player Forum:

Outdoor Tennis Tag Etiquette: Important Reminder

An important reminder to PLEASE display your Tennis Passholder or Walk On tags on the east side of the net (closest to the pool) and facing the clubhouse. This will make it so much easier to see who is on the court and whether their fees are paid, without a staff member interrupting your game for confirmation.

If you are a Walk On, it is imperative to check in at the Front Desk prior to play in order to pick up your Walk On Pass (orange), so that you can display it on the court.  As long as there are the same number of tennis tags on the net as there are players, then your game will not be disturbed by an RSC Staff Member.
