“Time to Play” for Adult Beginners

**Please note details concerning the 2017 Time to Play program will be available here once finalized.** Updated: March 5, 2017

At Howard Park Tennis Club, we are committed to helping new members of all levels become integrated into the Club. Time to Play is a program designed to introduce beginner adult members, with little or no previous tennis experience, to doubles play in a relaxed, friendly and supportive environment. This program introduces the basic elements of play, e.g. where to position yourself on court, putting the ball in play, keeping score, etc.

Player Level

Time to Play is designed for the 1.0 to 2.0 player who is looking to get started at the Club.
