Please call CRC and give the front desk an emergency phone number and contact. Recently emergencies have occurred involving individual members or elderly members and the only number we have on file was the member’s phone number. CRC had no way to contact someone close to the member to inform them of the emergency. Thank you.


 For parents of all junior competitive program players (including Satellite I & II, Junior Challengers, Junior Grand Prix, Junior Tour, Grand Prix and Girls High School):

Payment for the programs MUST be made BEFORE starting to play in the program! This applies to all players in all programs and for every twelve week session (fall, winter and spring). If your child starts late, the amount will be pro-rated for the remainder of the 12 week session but still must be paid before starting to play. 

You will NOT receive a bill in the mail so please contact the front desk to make your payment – thank you!

The USTA National Campus in Orlando, Fla officially debuted in 2017. CRC members were some of the first people to play on the 115 courts and tour the innovative new facility. Helen and Jim Petersen were there in March for the USTA Annual Meeting. Greg and Kim Griffey were there in April for the Tournament Directors certification. Jian Chen, Lynn Trott, and Yvette Van der Wiel were there in May for a girls trip.

The goal of the National Campus is to enhance the sport at every level and create an unparalleled playing, training and educational experience for players, coaches and spectators.

It focuses on the complete tennis pathway – from the youngest players to recreational competitors of all ages and ability levels, and from collegians to future pros and professional tour-level players.
