Dear RBC Members:

We are obligated to follow Federal and State guidelines on sports activities and social distancing. These guidelines, along with USTA recommendations and advice from healthcare professionals, helped to shape the rules we have established. If you plan to play, it is important to familiarize yourself with the rules and information below. These rules will need to be followed for the courts to remain open.
