The Silver Fox program is an opportunity for retirees to play some fun/relaxed tennis during the indoor season. The Har-tru courts at Chestnut Ridge are particularly kind to aching joints of any kind.
- Men and women over 60 years of age.
- The program makes court time available at a discount to retirees.
- The Silver Fox rate is 12% lower than the contract court rate.
Players will be scheduled to play 1½ hours of doubles per week on Tuesdays from 1:30 – 3:00pm.
If CRRC is notified in advance, it will be possible to individually tailor your playing times to meet the demands of your schedule.
The program will be limited to 16 players, 12 of whom will play each week. If you would like to be guaranteed a game each week, rather than 5 out of 6 weeks, you may enroll as a full member.
A schedule will be handed out before the first week of play. Each schedule will cover about six weeks. The player marked with an asterisk is the designated "captain" of the game. The captain is responsible for bringing the tennis balls.
Subs: Players must notify the captain if they get a substitute.
Obtaining a sub is a matter of good etiquette. Please do not let others down.
Any substitute playing either more than once per month or more than three times per season will pay a fee of $20 for that day’s play.
Players must be registered at CRRC in order to participate in the program. The annual registration fee is $75. Acceptance to the program is by tryout only.
Note that all registration fees are prorated to the date that you start.
