Following Governor Hogan’s expansion of additional outdoor recreational activities, the Palisades Board has approved a limited re-opening of the Palisades’ tennis courts for play. Palisades will be, at all times, in compliance with appropriate directives from our governing authorities. As this guidance changes, Palisades will adjust operations accordingly and reserves the right to close its facilities as necessary.
In an effort to provide a clear set of expectations for Palisades members, the protocols and procedures for re-opening tennis at Palisades amidst the ongoing concerns relating to COVID-19 are outlined here.
Please make certain to familiarize yourself with the guidelines before making tennis reservations and visiting Palisades.

Spring Junior Tennis Instructional Program starts April 5th
The start of the outdoor instructional program for 2021 will be on April 5th. The schedule of classes for the kids will largely remain unchanged from the fall. The timing of the classes will be a little later in the day to accommodate the kids returning to in person classes. Wednesday classes will still start earlier as there will not usually be in person classes that day. We will continue to offer excellent instructional programs for all ages and levels.
Adult Tennis Teams
Did you know that we have 5 adult tennis teams that compete against other area clubs? We have 2 ladies daytime teams that compete in the GWTA league. We have a ladies B Team which plays its matches on Tuesday mornings with practice on Friday mornings and is for the 3.5 to 4.0 level player. The second daytime team is our C team which plays its matches on Monday morning and practices on Thursday morning. This team consists of mainly 3.0-3.5 level players.
The other 3 teams play in the evening league which begins the first week in May and goes through July. The men’s team is a 4.0 level team and they play their matches on Tuesday evenings. We also have both a 3.5 women’s evening team and 4.0 team. These women play their matches on Thursday evenings with practices on Sunday morning.
Junior Tennis Team
Did you know that our junior tennis team had our best finish ever last year? We finished in 2nd place out of 8 clubs in our league and came within one match of beating the first place team. If your child is interested in getting experience playing matches then the Palisades Junior Tennis Team is perfect for you! The league is only for unranked juniors that do not have a lot of experience playing matches and is a great way for kids to learn how to play matches in a low key atmosphere.
Junior Tennis Summer Camp
Our very popular summer camp program, which includes our training camp for advanced players. Will be taking a maximum of 24 kids per week in our morning camp program this year to continue to allow for social distancing. Reserve early!
