Tennis Attire

All members and guests are expected to wear appropriate tennis attire that cover both their chest and midriff area. It is imperative that members wear proper tennis sneakers with soles that do not cause unusual marring of the court surface. We will politely inform members and guests if any clothing or equipment does not conform to club standards.

 

Court Assignments

Members must receive a court assignment from a staff member before playing. Courts are assigned in person, on a first-come, first-served basis. Once a court assignment is made, members are guaranteed use of their court for 60 minutes for singles play and for 90 minutes for doubles play. 

Early-Bird Tennis is available from Saturday, May 29, through Monday, September 6. Members who begin play by 7:30am are guaranteed 75 minutes of uninterrupted singles play or 100 minutes of uninterrupted doubles play. 

Although every effort is made to provide uninterrupted playing time to members, the club reserves the right to alter court assignments or hours of play to facilitate court maintenance and to guarantee the quality of our courts and the safety of our members. In inclement weather, particularly after heavy rain, we ask members to telephone the club to determine court availability.

“DOUBLES-ONLY” Days: On the busiest days of the season, play is restricted to doubles only between 8am and 11:30am. Accordingly, only doubles play will be allowed for starting times from 8am to 11:30am on Friday, July 2, through Monday, July 5.

  • Personal checks, cash, Mastercard/Visa and American Express are accepted for payment of club membership dues and all other charges. Membership privileges are withheld until memberships are paid in full.

PROGRAMS AND SERVICES

Children / Junior Players

The club is pleased to provide an inviting atmosphere to families with children and proud to be creating the tennis players of tomorrow. We offer a range of youth tennis camps, including the John McEnroe Tennis Academy, for junior players ages 9 - 17, and U10 clinics for players, ages 3 - 10, at all levels (Red Ball, Orange Ball, Green Ball and Yellow Ball). We are also the home to the best summer day camp in the Hamptons: East Hampton Sports Camp @ SPORTIME, for kids ages 3 - 14. Children 11 years and under who are not participating in one of our programs must be accompanied by an adult, or by a caregiver at least 14 years of age, when on club grounds.

Junior tennis players, 17 years and under, must be accompanied by 3 adult players in order to play tennis during peak hours or when adult members are waiting to play. Junior tennis players must be members in order to take tennis lessons during peak hours.

Game Arranging &

Providing suitable and fun matches for our members is our job and our pleasure. Our goal is to guarantee a great tennis experience every time a member visits the club. We love to introduce members to new partners and to new friends. 

A wide range of partners is almost always available to play on weekend and summer-season mornings and we are happy to make best efforts to arrange games “on the fly”. However, in order to find the best partner/s for members, and to eliminate surprises, we encourage members who would like assistance in finding a partner/s to contact the club in advance, so that we can arrange and confirm a suitable game. Games are confirmed no later than 6pm the night before the requested play date. Once members have requested a game, we ask that they respond to related messages and emails promptly, and update us if their plans change. If you have not heard from Sportime by 6pm the night before your requested game date, please contact the club. We ask that all members play with a variety of suitable member partners and welcome new members into their circles of partners. 

We have a great staff of young “hitters” who are available by reservation at a charge of $40 per hour. A “hitter” may also be provided, free of charge, based on availability, when the club is unable to find a suitable partner for a member, or to fill a doubles game. “Hitters” are available from Saturday, May 29, through Monday, September 6.

Club Tournaments

Members who would like to compete against other members in a structured format are encouraged to participate in our club tournaments. Participants must be current members, at least 18 years of age, and must sign up by Thursday, July 1, 2021. Draws will be posted by Wednesday, July 7. Matches are arranged by the players and take place during the months of July and August, starting Thursday, July 8, and finishing by Labor Day Weekend. Players may enter up to 3 divisions in total. Junior Members and club employees may not participate in club tournaments (as opposed to USTA or UTR events, which are open to the public).  

Tennis & Swim

Lesson appointments may be made at any time throughout the season and members are given scheduling priority when possible but are encouraged to book lesson time as far in advance as possible. House charge privileges or current credit card details are required in order to book lessons. Should weather conditions seem questionable, it is a member's responsibility to reconfirm her lesson time or to confirm that a lesson has been cancelled. Members will not be liable for any charges if a lesson is cancelled at least 48 hours in advance. If a member does not notify the club of his desire to cancel at least 48 hours in advance of a lesson, or if a member is a "no show" for a lesson, s/he will be charged for the total lesson fee. Members are encouraged to arrive at least 10 minutes in advance of their scheduled lesson appointment and must check in at the front desk. 

Cafe

Our club’s café is operated by The Cookery, by Cyn and Trudy, and offers a wide variety of beverages and delicious breakfast, lunch and snack options, home baked goods, smoothies, and more. Members may set up charge account privileges directly with The Cookery. SPORTIME is not responsible for café billing issues.
