FAQs

Why is all white tennis attire required?

  • In a word? Tradition. Wimbledon also requires tennis players to wear all white.  People are always getting us confused!

Why are coverups required when outside the pool deck?

  • Honestly, you look great.  Like really great - and it’s distracting the tennis players.

Why clay courts?

  • Better question - why not clay courts?  RFTC has 10 excellent Har-Tru® surface courts equipped with a state-of-the-art HydroCourt self-regulating underground irrigation system, minimizing maintenance and downtime compared with natural clay. This surface also offers tennis players lower impact on joints and cooler conditions than hard surface courts.
