During the tournament we invite you to make use of all that GCC has to offer. For directions please visit our website.
When can Players Practice?
Limited Player practice courts:
During the tournament week Limited Grass practice courts will be available for player use. 2 outdoor hard courts will also be available all week for player practice.
How do I get a Court?
Players must see the Starter / Pro Shop to sign up for a court. No player is permitted to go on a court without signing up.
Tournament players are permitted to sign up for a practice court 30 minutes in advance. When necessary, players will be assigned four to a court (must be in person and ready to play in order to sign up).
GCC Members have priority use over Practice courts at all times. This means Tournament Players may be bumped by GCC Members if there are no other available courts. Thank you for your understanding.
When you first arrive at GCC please come to the Registration Desk (under the big tree) prior to getting on a practice court and/or your first match.
