LED Tennis Court Lights
LED lighting coming soon! Exciting news! Our club is installing LED lightiing in the very near future. Work was schedule to start on December 3rd but is now pushed back a bit due to issues at the Oakland Port. During this time, up until maybe December 14th, expect fewer courts available both during day time and night time until the work is completed. We are sorry for any inconvenience during daytime play due to noise or movement around the courts but it will all be worth it in the end.
