The end of the 2020-2021 Indoor Season

Dear HVIT Gang:


We close for the current season on Saturday, May 15. We will re-open on a daily basis on Sunday, October 3. We expect to return to pre-pandemic scheduling then. 


This summer we will be open for part of each day on most Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays starting on May 17. If you would like to book a court on one of those days, please email us your request. We will often be open on rainy days as well, so do not hesitate to contact us if it looks like your outdoor game is going to be rained out (or it’s simply too hot!). The hourly rate for summer play is $36. 


Shawn Holzmann will continue to do clinics and private lessons out of HVIT for much of the summer. You can contact him by email at info@breakpointny.com or go to his website (breakpointny.com). 


Finally, a few housekeeping notes:


-anyone who had a contract slot in 2019-2020 who has not already told us whether they will be returning for the 2021-2022 season should do so soon.


-we will need everyone playing at HVIT vaccinated prior to our re-opening in October. This will create a much safer environment in which to enjoy our tennis. 


-we ask everyone to be aware of the shoes they are wearing out onto the courts. Recently, more and more dirt and stones have been tracked in. The DecoTurf courts are quite soft and debris gets easily ground down into them where it is difficult to remove. 


We want to thank all of you who have supported us this past season. We have tried for 8 months to weigh everyone’s safety with our mutual love of tennis. We hope we struck the right balance. Our very best wishes for a healthy and happy summer to everyone!

Summer tennis at HVIT!

Dear Members,

We are experimenting with staying open this summer on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays when our regular winter season ends (which is on May 15 this year). If you would like a court on one of those days, please contact us with some possible days and times that would work for you. Please also let us know who your playing partner(s) would be and how long you would like to play (60, 90 or 120 minutes). Cost would be $36 per hour.
