Breakfast Club is a fun, affordable way to play tennis daily during the indoor season. For a flat fee, Breakfast Club Members may play any Monday-Friday morning on three or four designated indoor courts starting at 7:00 AM from October through March. This is not lesson time; it is intended for random doubles play and no use of the ball machine is available. There are typically players of all skill levels available to participate, but there is no guarantee on any given day how many players will attend (Attendance will be capped this year for health and safety reasons so please see NEW THIS FALL for program changes.) The fee for Breakfast Club is $45 per month for members and $55 per month for non-members.
Contact the front desk at 617.288.9092 for more information.
NEW THIS FALL:
For health and safety reasons, there are no more than 4 players allowed on a court at one time so we will be limiting Breakfast Club membership to 32 people per month and breaking the time into two sessions of 16 players each – the Early Session from 7:00 am – 9:00 am and the Late Session from 9:30 am to 11:30 am. Members choose one session (Early or Late) to attend and are welcome to come any Monday-Friday all month long during that time. No drop-ins or guests will be allowed during the pandemic.
