Tisbury recently announced opportunities for its summer tennis program. The Tisbury Open Space Committee built new clay tennis courts on Church Street, and revitalized the parking area using funds from a Community Preservation committee grant. 

The Church Street Tennis Courts will be locked to protect the clay surface, but open for paying customers. There are $150 seasonal family memberships for Tisbury residents, $20 reservation fees for Tisbury residents, and $35 reservation fees for non-Tisbury residents, each reservation session for 1½ hours. The pay-to-play options will be available after mid-July. 

The keys that come with family memberships can be purchased at the Department of Public Works office at 115 High Point Lane in Tisbury. By mid-July, members will be able to reserve court time online, and gain access through an electronic lock system with a PIN number. 

Additionally, the committee is working with the West Chop Club’s tennis program to provide clinics at Church Street, and at the three new pickleball courts at Lake Street.
