you’re a beginner or a seasoned player, you should be looking into the Palm
Greens Tennis Rotation Program. It is, reputedly, one of the best venues in this
area.There is no charge for the rotation. There is a one time charge
of $10 to cover the cost of new balls. Rhe good news is, you are in a
structured program that allows you to play competitive tennis with players of
your level. Your games and court assignments are put together by schedulers, who
are members of the Tennis Committee.
The program is
managed by the Tennis Committee, which is responsible for the administration of
all tennis activities, assisted by our tennis pro, Jim Boardman. In the
rotation, four or five players of comparable ability are assigned a playing time
and a court. During the season, the rotation games are played Mondays,
Wednesdays and Fridays. Games run 75 minutes,beginning at 8 am and ending at
noon. The exception is Monday, when play is limited to one hour, in deference to
the Inter-Condo teams.
When you come
in to sign up for the rotation, you will be given a booklet of rules and
regulations governing the overall activities of this venue. Included will be
scheduling your games (what days and what times), changing your schedule, what
to do in case you cannot play and changing your level and priority of play. The
rules are simple and based on common sense and if you have been playing
organized tennis for any length of time, they will be familiar to you.
By joining the
rotation, you get to meet and play with a variety of people you may (or may not)
know. You play on well-maintained courts for over an hour. You become part of a
community activity that has grown in popularity over the years. And, best of
all, it gives players of every level an opportunity to play in an organized game
with players that are on their level.
We invite all
tennis players – of all levels – to visit the Tennis Center and meet the pro
and members of the tennis committee. We believe you will find the Tennis
Rotation Program an activity that will occupy your tennis time constructively
