FAQs:
QUESTION: Why aren’t the courts going to be filled with the popular leagues as in the past?
ANSWER: Organized programs and tournaments have been canceled around the world due to the high risk of spreading the COVID 19 virus. Casual tennis is one of the few sports that has been allowed to open with only a few restrictions and rules to lower the risk of spreading the novel coronavirus. There is very little danger while playing ; the danger is in the comings and goings, the social mingling that we are all so drawn to. 
QUESTION: What are those rules & restrictions?
ANSWER: There are no major changes. In the first few days after outdoor tennis was deemed relatively safe by the medical experts, only singles play was allowed. Now both singles & doubles are permitted. A few adaptations have helped insure that there is physical distancing and protection from airborne droplets. Masks are required when approaching the court, but not during play. The major  concern is social gatherings where people hang together for a little bit too long. Therefore, we'll have rules about not arriving more than 10 minutes ahead of your court time and staying in a waiting area until the other players have left the area.
QUESTION: I'm unclear about the different memberships. You mentioned that deluxe members play only at Greenock. Where would the non-deluxe members play?
ANSWER: We have 2 levels of Lee CTA Membership: $25 Standard Member & $80 Deluxe Member. All Lee CTA Members can book GCC court time via our online Court Scheduler; however, the Standard Member rate is $16 per hr., whereas, the Deluxe Member rate is only $8 per hr. ($2 per person) Please see our Membership page for a full description of the member benefits. 
QUESTION:  I don't know any other players to ask to join me in a contract and even if I did, I'd feel uncomfortable doing that. How can I find others to play in my contract!
ANSWER:   CONTACT US  We love match making! That's what we're here for!
