Stevens Tennis Courts Open to Hoboken Residents for the Summer

For the second year in a row, Stevens Institute of Technology is providing Hoboken residents with access to four tennis courts this summer.

"Last summer dozens of Hoboken residents were able to use the tennis courts at Stevens, and I am very thankful to President Farvardin and the Athletic Department for again making their facilities available to our very active community," said Mayor Dawn Zimmer.

The full announcement including details on how to register to use the courts is below.

Community Use of Stevens Tennis Courts-Summer 2017 June 5-August 13, 2017 Registration and Usage Information

Again in 2017, Stevens will provide access to its four tennis courts on the northern part of its campus to Hoboken residents aged 18 and above.

Location Hoboken residents 18 years of age and older may use the set of four tennis courts located just off of Ninth Street on the north end of the Stevens campus. The set of two courts on the south side of campus are not available for use and are restricted to the Stevens community.

Requirements All Hoboken residents 18 years of age and older who are interested in using the courts must first obtain a Stevens visitor ID card. The first step is to complete the Athletics Facilities Use and Release form which can be picked up at the Schaefer Athletic Center’s reception desk Monday-Friday between 8am and 8:30pm. The reception desk is located in the main lobby of the building and can only be accessed through the front entrance.

All individuals must present valid proof of Hoboken residence. Upon completion of the form, a Stevens visitor ID will be created for each person and distributed on the same visit. This ID must be present with the individual at all times while on the Stevens campus and a second form of photo ID must be available as well. No guests are allowed; only those people with a valid Stevens ID may use the courts.

Please note that ID cards issued for last year’s program are invalid. Any participants in last year’s program must complete all paperwork again and will be issued a new ID card.

Dates and Hours The courts are available for use Monday-Sunday from 8am-8:30pm from Monday, June 5-Sunday, August 13.

Parking No parking is available on campus for those individuals using the tennis courts.

Rules All posted rules at the tennis facility must be followed. A one hour time limit is in effect when the courts are full. Patrons may not prop open the door to the courts nor let other individuals into the courts. All tennis players must swipe in to the facility on their own. Anyone who is found in violation of these rules will lose court privileges for the remainder of the summer.
