Q?Why must I pay to use UCRC courts?

UCRC is a 501(c)4 non-profit organization committed to supporting and developing public tennis in the University City community of San Diego.  As you may know, the City of San Diego has not been in a financial position to help subsidize many county tennis properties for several years. UCRC collects membership, non-member fees, and court fees to pay for court resurfacing, lighting, nets, screens, squeegees, court washing, and our management team.

Q?Do I need to be a Member to play at UCRC?

The University City Racquet Club welcomes all players.  Members play for free and Non-members can play for a nominal fee.  Non-member rates are $8 per person/per day and a court reservation can be made in person at the UCRC Clubhouse with one of our Tennis Pros.  If you are deciding on a membership and want to play a few times prior to becoming a member, up to 3 court fees may be applied towards the cost of Membership.

Q?I want to take part in a clinic or lesson but I am not a member, is this possible?

All clinics and lessons are open to non-members.  Check with each Pro to find out your options and available times for you to hit the courts with one of our great instructors.

Q?What are the hours of operation at UCRC?
  • Hours of Operation:  Monday-Friday 8:30am-11:30am and 4:00pm-7:30pm.  Saturday-Sunday 9:00am-12:00pm.
  • Additional hours by appointment
  • Court condition and weather permitting

Our hours of operation are determined on a daily basis by the availability of our Pros.  In order to keep our membership rates affordable we do not employ a full-time clubhouse attendant. If you have any questions or concerns, you can always email: contact@ucrctennis.com or call the Club at 858-452-5683 and leave a message if you are unable to reach anyone at the time of call.  One benefit of Membership is the ability to open the courts at any time as you are given access to the security code for the courts.

Q?What shoes can I wear while hitting at UCRC?

Tennis Shoes!  In order to keep our courts in great shape, only tennis or non-marking athletic shoes are permitted.  Running shoes are not approved while playing at UCRC.  If you have any questions regarding shoes or attire, feel free to ask a Pro.
