Welcome to NSJ Tennis!

Tennis Information

Work will be starting soon to make the tennis courts shine in time for the NSJ season opener May 27.  Tennis courts may, however, be used at any time.  Please contact Tennis Co-directors Dana Arthurs at or Caroline Bodziak at , or any NSJ Board Member, for the lock combination to access the courts or tennis shed outside the regular pool season or normal hours of operation.  A leaf blower is stored in the shed for member use to clear the court if desired.

Starting in April, weather permitting, a contractor will begin power washing all four tennis courts and repairing the fence on Courts 1 and 2, the courts closest to the pavilion.  Courts 1 and 2 will be resurfaced the following week, damaged wind screens will be replaced on all courts.

The pool season will kick off with a Wooden Racquet Tournament on June 4, the first Family Fun Day – more information to come!

For Beginners:
From opening day through Labor Day, join us Friday nights for co-ed adult Beginner's Social Tennis.  We will meet on the courts to play 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm.

Men’s Drop-in Tennis* is scheduled during the Memorial Day through Labor Day pool season.  You’ll be matched up according to rating level and play with a different partner each time, but please ask if you’d like to play with someone in particular.  Tuesdays 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm is intermediate to competitive play and Thursday 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm is beginner to intermediate.

Women’s Drop-in Tennis* is 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm on Wednesdays starting in early June. 

*Men’s and Women’s Drop-ins are socials open to both NSJ members and guests, so please pass the word if you have non-member friends who’d like to play. All Drop-ins end with ice-cold refreshments.  Contact Director of Tennis Dana Arthurs .


See you on the courts!
