2021-2022 Indoor Season Is Rapidly Approaching!!

To all members:

As the 2021-2022 season approaches, we would like to update everyone on our new health and safety protocols as well as other club rules:

we expect a return to essentially normal operations this coming season. Opening day is Sunday, October 3.

everyone entering the club (including those ages 12-17) will need to show proof of vaccination. Once you have shown proof, you are all set for the season (or until the CDC authorizes booster shots). The only exceptions will be children under the age of 12.

no children are allowed in the clubhouse except on their way to the courts. We have had numerous issues with children in past years and have decided this is the only way to proceed. If parents come to use a court (or have a lesson) and arrive with children, they will be asked to leave.

-please remember to carry clean tennis shoes into the club and put them on once inside. If you must wear outside shoes into the facility, please clean them extra thoroughly on the outdoor and indoor mats provided.

We are very much looking forward to a full, healthy and enjoyable indoor season with every one of you!

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!
