SBCA Tennis Courts now secured.

The SBCA's tennis courts are now secured with a padlock. The tennis courts are now accessed in one of two ways:

1. Check out a key from the Bay Club Front Desk each time, and return to the key to the Bay Club Front Desk when tennis play has concluded. Keys can only be checked out during the Bay Club's normal hours of operation and must be returned on the same day before the Club closes.


Send an email to the Bay Club GM to arrange for a time when a key to the tennis courts can be issued to you (SBCA Member) to keep, so that checking out and returning a key from the Bay Club Front Desk will become unecessary for accessing the courts. There is no cost for a key, unless lost.
