Do not park on grass.
Proper attire will be required at all times, specifically in the following areas:
- Tennis courts: Tennis attire preferred. No cut-offs, bathing suits, running shoes, or hard sole shoes at any time.
- Swimming Pools/Sauna/Hot Tub: Swim attire is to be worn and is restricted to these areas at all times. No nude bathing; this includes infants and children while using swimming pools. Individuals who are not toilet trained must wear appropriate undergarments to inhibit any unwanted accidents in the pool or hot tub.
- Fitness Room: No wet clothing (bathing suits) is to be worn at any time. Proper attire and athletic footwear must be worn; no bare feet. Shirts must be worn at all times. Outside dirt and clay must be removed from shoes before entering the fitness room.
General Registration: All owners, lodging guests, club members, and visitors are required to sign in at the Front Desk when using the Recreation Center facilities. Members must present their membership cards to the Front Desk and may pick them up upon departure. Either an owner or a member must accompany their guests. The Bridges front desk is not responsible for holding membership cards on file. Please keep them with you at all times. If your card is lost, The Bridges will replace it for free the first time. Each time, thereafter, there will be a $3 replacement fee.
Registration for Courts, Lessons, Clinics and Other Programs: All owners, lodging guests, members and their guests must register at the Front Desk/Sports Desk prior to entry. This insures that the proper court and/or program assignment be charged appropriately. If a receipt is not signed, the front desk, sports desk, assigned Instructor, or Director of Tennis will have the authority to initial all receipts for all owners/lodging guests and the amount will be applied to their account.
Charging Privileges: Only owners and those occupying a unit at The Bridges may charge café, court time, lessons, or clinic fees to their accounts. All members and lodging guests must pay for services and purchases directly. All lodging guests must settle all accounts on a weekly basis and at time of departure.
Health & Safety Policy: The Bridges limits the number of people permitted in our pools, saunas, hot tub, and fitness room. Health and safety laws make this a necessity and therefore controls on limiting usage are essential.
Court Time Reservation Policy: Reservations are based on availability. Court demand may limit maximum use to one session per day. Reservations will be limited to one hour for singles and one and one-half hours for doubles. Additional court time will be on an availability basis and at the discretion of the front desk/sports desk personnel. When reserving a court, you may only reserve for your party. All players must check in at the front desk/sports desk prior to play in order to allocate billing and receive court/instructor assignment. Court assignments will not be given in advance.
There is a limit of one active reservation per unit at any time. Owners may reserve one court one week in advance. Members and guests may reserve a court 24 hours in advance. Reservation times are 1 hour for singles and 1.5 hours for doubles. There can be no multiple bookings for a unit (no exceptions). This policy will ensure fair and equitable access to court time. As soon as a court reservation has expired then that unit is allowed to make another reservation. All reservtions are to be directed to the Front Desk Receptionist/Sports Desk. The Director of Tennis has ultimate discretion in regards to any issue(s) that may arise.
Please cancel court times at least four hours in advance on the day of play, to allow for re-booking. Court fees will be charged for cancellations of less than four hours notice if the time cannot be re-booked. Lessons are not considered court reservations. Late lesson cancellations shall warrant an automatic charge for the lesson.
In the event of inclement weather, private or group lessons and clinics shall have priority on both indoor courts. Depending on the season, holders of outdoor reservations shall have priority in reserving indoor time on a first come, first serve basis.

Saunas/Locker Rooms: Use of the saunas is recommended for adults. We suggest a maximum time of use of 15 minutes. Longer periods may result in medical complications. These are dry saunas, adding water to the stones is strictly prohibited. This could cause the elements to burn out. Do not put wet clothing or footwear in lockers.
Hot Tub: Use of the hot tub is recommended for adults and is limited to eight persons. Unsupervised use by children is prohibited. Please be aware of the health risks that can result from prolonged use. To reiterate, absolutely NO alcoholic beverages are allowed in this area at any time.
Swimming Pools: No running, dangerous or boisterous conduct allowed at any time. Lifeguard hours will be posted. Each individual and every adult responsible for minors will assume all personal risks and responsibilities while swimming when no lifeguard is on duty. Individuals must be 14 or older to swim unsupervised. Supervisors of children under 14 must be 18 or older.
Fitness Room: Only individuals 14 years and older are allowed in the Fitness Room. This is a safety issue and must be strictly adhered to. Please be considerate of others in the gym by using only one piece of equipment at a time and limit time on each to 30 minutes during busy times. Please make sure shoes are free of outside dirt and tennis court clay. Collected dirt and clay in machines can damage moving parts and render them inoperable.
