Scheduling: Court Reserve
Our schedules run through a software program call Court Reserve. When you become a member, we will invite you to register and enter a password. New members, please see the tab on left for more details.
CTPA Club Rating
Starting in 2020 : Only one method for Club Rating will be used to advance to the next level.
Promotion Evaluation: A group of 60 members who were involved in volunteering in 2019 were invited to our Dec 11, 2019 end of the year meeting and it was decided at that meeting that for 2020 we would use only one method, Promotional Evaluation, to advance to the next level. We will no longer accept IPTPA, USAPA or any other rating system to advance to another level as of Jan 1, 2020.

Temporary or Injury Rating Reduction: A member can ask for a temporary rating reduction WITHOUT impacting their Club Rating in cases of injury or other reasons. At any time the member can ask to have their original rating restored WITHOUT having to go through the Promotion Evaluation process. For example, lets say a person with a 3.5 club rating has a shoulder injury requiring surgery, that person can request to be temporarily be rated at 2.5 or 3.0 during their rehab in order to have access to the 2.5 or 3.0 schedule and can ultimately go back to a 3.5 rating when they feel they are ready.....all without any evaluation.

CTPA Membership Cards
Please display cards at all times!
Your membership fees help to generate the revenue to build the eight courts and the recent expansion of five more. In exchange, the township allows CTPA members to use the courts 6 AM to 1 PM and 5 PM to 9 PM seven days a week. ONLY MEMBERS are allowed to play during these hours. Therefore your membership card must be displayed on your bag and your bag MUST be against the fence or hanging on the fence with the card facing out.
If you find someone left their membership card behind, put the card in the locked mailbox on Court 1 and the card will be returned to the owner.
Non-members are not permitted to play on our courts during CTPA hours....even if there is an empty court they must exit the court. Again the court expansion are being paid with membership fees and therefore those times are for members only. If you invite a nonmember to play, you MUST purchase a Guest Pass in advance.
Guest Passes: for Member’s Guests
Only you as a member can buy a guest pass for a non-member you want to invite to play. You do this by going onto Court Reserve for the day you are planning to have the guest and go to 9 PM. You can then register and pay ($5) for one guest pass. If you are planning to have more than one guest, you will need other members to buy a pass for the other guests. You must buy the guest pass BEFORE the event. Please be fair to everyone who bought a yearly membership by making sure YOU bought a pass for your guest.
INDOOR PLAY-Guest: If you invite a guest to play in a YFP or other fee event, that member must pay the court fee PLUS a $5 guest pass. For example lets say you buy a YFP for $16 or $4/person and have one guest, then you must also get a $5 guest pass for the day you are playing. So the total cost with one guest would be $21.
Checking to verify a Member bought a Guest Pass If you want to verify that a member did buy a guest pass just go to Court Reserve and verify that a pass was purchased. That members name should be on the list. If they did bring a guest and did not purchase the guest pass you can either POLITELY explained to that member or report it to any committee member and we will address it.
Guest Pass: For Non-members interested in joining CTPA, who want to try it out first
Interested in joining but want to learn more about CTPA? We will provide you with a FREE "one-time" guest pass and connect you with a member to play and learn more about CTPA.

Guest Pass: For Out-of Town players looking to play while they are visiting the area
We are not geared for drop in guests because of the way we schedule courts. None the less feel free to send an email to email@example.com and we will try to do our best to accommodate you or suggest other places to play. Guest pass is $7. If you get into area a few times a year and live over 100 miles away we do have a special discounted membership that you may be interested in.
