After logging into your online account, you can see the court times that are available or booked by clicking on “Reserve a Court”.
Simply select the court and time you wish to play and follow the prompts to reserve the court.
You will pay for the court at the time you make the reservation, unless you have a weekly billing account.
Prime Time are the high usage hours. Prime Time court rentals are for court times from Monday through Thursday during the 5pm – 8:45pm hours.
Yes. You can select other members to share in the cost of renting a court during the reservation process.
No. There are no guest fees for non-members.
Guests need to register at the front desk prior to playing and are encouraged to arrive 10 minutes early prior to court or class time.
There is a 48-hour cancellation policy for all court reservations. Members can cancel courts 48 hours prior to their reserved time at charge. If a member cancels a court with less than 48 hours notice, then they will be charged the cost of a Singles court fee.
Reservations for courts will be allowed each day at Midnight, 12:00 am for 6-day advance reservations.
Members can only reserve one court per time slot.
Members can reserve a maximum of three (3) tennis courts at a time.
If a member is currently on-court and nobody has booked the court time immediately following them, they may come out after their original court time and book the next slot.
Members can play on more than one court time a day (e.g. if they play with a friend who booked the court, they can still add their name to the court to split the cost); they can also take as many classes and private lessons a day as they wish.
Members may reserve up to three (3) tennis courts at any given time within their 6-day reservation window.
Members may reserve one (1) Prime Time court at any given time within their 6-day reservation window.
No more than one court can be booked during the same time slot.
Outside hoppers are not allowed because we have had issues with people replacing their balls with fresher TCSP balls. Hoppers are available for rent at a cost of $5.
Cancellation policy: 24 hours – must contact Tennis Pro directly. If you cancel within 24 hours of your lesson, you will be responsible for paying the entire lesson.
I withdrew from a class last session. Can I use that account credit towards my husband's class this session?
Yes. If your accounts are linked, the system will automatically transfer credit from linked accounts to accounts with outstanding charges on them.
TCSP processes payments for each member account by charging the card associated with that account for the entire balance on the account every Monday morning. If an account does not have a card associated with it, payment for service is due at the time of booking. In the event a card is declined, that member will have 7 days after the first failed transaction to remit payment for all outstanding charges. Accounts with outstanding balances older than 7 days will have their memberships suspended until their billing information has been updated, and they will be unable to enroll in classes and private lessons, reserve court times, or play in USTA leagues. Once we have received payment, all suspended services will be reactivated. Please call the Front Desk after remitting payment to ensure that your membership is reactivated.
Membership is not required to reserve court times, but is required to reserve court times in advance. It is also required to take private lessons, play in leagues, and enroll in classes.

Registration & Classes
I know I need a rating to sign up for classes, and I don't have a rating with TCSP, but I have a USTA rating. Can I use this as my TCSP rating?
- Yes! If you play USTA Adult Leagues and have a verifiable rating on the USTA’s TennisLink website, call the Front Desk at (206) 522 – 5008, and we will enter this in our system as your NTRP rating.
- We do not accept ratings from different clubs or instructors who are not employed at TCSP.
All players looking to register for classes have the same registration date. Keeping registration opportunities equal for both current and new players is the best way to give a fair shot to the most new members and players as possible to get on court.
I will be out of town on Registration Day or without access to internet. Can I sign up over the phone?
- We will not accept any phone registrations during the first week registration is open. We recommend providing a friend with your username and password and asking them to sign you up online.
- If your friend has provided you their username and password, you can sign them up online. If you are signing up in-person, you may sign your family members up along with members from one other family.
You can reset your password using the link at https://tcsp.clubautomation.com/. If you are still unable to access your account, please do not create multiple accounts. Give our Front Desk a call at 206.522.5008, and we can change your username and/or reset your password manually.
The system filters out results based on various account attributes. In order to sign up for non-beginner tennis classes, you must have 1) an active membership and 2) an NTRP rating on file. Juniors must also have the correct age and rating. Please see our Get Started page for more details.
In addition, you will not be able to see the classes under the “Register for Classes” page until the registration date. If you are looking to plan out your schedule, we usually the post the schedule on our main page.
If a class says to “Call”, then the class is at maximum capacity and we are no longer accepting new participants. Please text or call the Front Desk at 206.522.5008 to be placed on the waitlist. In the event a spot opens up, we will call and email you letting you know. If we are unable to reach you by phone call, you have 24 hours to respond until we reach out to the next waitlister.
I took Clinic 2.0 last session. Why can I not see Clinic 2.5? / My child took Red Ball 1.0 last session. Why can I see Red Ball 2.0?
If you were not notified of a rating change, then your instructor has determined your rating has remained the same and that you should re-enroll in the same level of class for the following session.
In order to sign up for non-beginner tennis classes, you must have 1) an active membership and 2) an eligible NTRP rating on file. Juniors must also have the correct age and rating. Please see our Get Started page for more details.
You are not signed up for the class until you submit payment. After adding a class to your cart, click on “View Cart” in the top-right of the screen. From there, you will be able to “Continue, to Check Out’ in the bottom-right. After completing the payment process, the class should now show up under “Your Registrations” and in your Statement
This is something our software company is still developing. If you have account credit you would like to apply to your class, please register for the class by paying in full first. Then call our Front Desk at 206.522.5008 to have one of our Front Desk staff refund your payment equal to the amount of your credit and manually apply it.
- Unfortunately, the system lists past classes registered for as well. This is something our software provider is currently working on. Only the classes with the Season Information displayed are current.
- e.g. TCSP Indoor Season 2016-17 (08/29/2016 – 06/18/2017)
I added a class to my cart and attempted to submit payment information, but I received a “Payment Amount Invalid” message. Am I signed up for the class?
No. These kickbacks are related to the timing of the registration process. As multiple people are in the process of registering, some members complete their registrations before others. So while there was potentially a spot open when the class was initially to their cart, there may no longer be any spots left at the time registration is completed. The notification “Invalid Payment Amount” is generated due to the fact that the system no longer recognizes a charge to be paid for, since the class no longer has any available spots.
What is the refund policy for when a player drops a class before the session starts? After the session starts?
Class Change / Refund Policy: Schedule changes must be secured by the first Sunday of each session, and can only be done on a space available basis. No schedule change(s), refunds, or account credit will be allowed after the first Sunday of each session. For instance, if the first day of the session is Monday, January 04, 2016, then the last day to withdraw from a class is Sunday, January 10, 2016. Refunds will be issued in the form of Account Credit, and may be prorated if you withdraw after the first class meeting. Account credit will only apply to the use of tennis-related activities, i.e. programs, lessons, clinics, court and ball machine rentals, and USTA/Cup team activity. Credit from classes and programs cannot be applied towards the Pro Shop or Cafe purchases. In case of injury, a doctor’s note is needed for account credit.

Due to the high volume of players TCSP serves, we are unable effectively offer make-ups.
What's the drop-in policy for clinics and fitness classes? If the class is full, but not everyone shows up, can a player drop-in?
There are no Drop-Ins for Instructional Classes in order to keep the progression of the class the same with the people in the class, but you can drop into any fitness class under certain conditions:
- You are a member
- If a class is not full, you may drop-in and pay the per-time fee.
- If a class is full, you may drop that player in and have them pay the per-time ONLY if not everyone shows up.
- There are no subs. Anyone wishing to sub may drop-in at the normal per-time rate/rules.
