starting with the 2019-2020 Season, on Wednesday nights the club is opening a separate court in the school's small gym for younger folks. These younger folks are only those who have parents registered and present on the Wednesday. The younger folks do not need to register but will need a form filled out on theeir first night. Only children of registered parents in attendance will be allowed.
Due to popularity, there is no longer an option to attend as a drop-in. The only way to play at this club is to sign up for the season. There is no longer an option to carry over skipped nights into other seasons.

Bring own racket and sneakers to wear (no street footwear on courts).
Players of all levels are welcome, from beginner/recreational to experienced/advanced. Peer instruction and support are offered.
