Total Indoor Costs are the Sum of Membership Costs and Seasonal Costs

Indoor Membership Costs

$150 for an Individual, $200 for a Family of 2 and $250 for a family of 3 or more

Cancelled Sessions: To reduce the hours required in scheduling make-up dates, if a paid session is eliminated by the college, a group will have two options:

  1. Get a refund for that session paid to the Captain OR
  2. Make-up the lost date with another date or extending your playing time

Communication: We will maximize the use of the GETA website to communicate to captains who in turn should also save time in communicating with their team members.

Seasonal Costs

The College determines the dates for the opening and closing of the season and all dates when the tennis is closed.

The # of dates available during the season for court time, by day of the week, is as follows:

Finding Other Players

The GETA website has a “bulletin board” feature. This free bulletin board is a tool to help GETA members meet new players, find a sub or regular for an existing group, or start a new group.

This section of the website is NOT viewed very often.

If you are having difficulty finding someone to add to your group, I will do my best to help you. Gregory Parfianowicz,

Weather Related Closings or Delays

Bad weather can become a frustrating problem when players are uncertain if there is tennis. The college will inform the GETA rep or his designee as soon as possible on any closings of the MAC or delays in its opening. GETA will then post these closings/delays on its home page (Announcements section). Please use your judgment in deciding whether or not to travel when the road conditions are potentially dangerous.

Chairs in Bathrooms for Dressing

The college will provide 2 chairs in each bathroom for dressing.  (The college says it cannot risk opening up the locker rooms to us where student-players leave personal belongings.)
