Ball machine & Lock Combinations

NSJ owns a Spinfire ball machine for members use stored in the shed on court 1.  Members must have a brief (10-15 minute) orientation on the ball machine before using.  Contact Caroline or Dana to set up that orientation.  Members are also allowed to use the tennis courts any time, even outside of regular pool operating hours.  Contact Caroline or Dana to get the lock codes for the front gate, tennis gates, and tennis shed to access the courts and equipment at your convenience.
