Our Response

During this challenging time, the health and safety of our members, guests, and employees is our top priority.

With an average court size of 7,200 square feet, tennis naturally supports a robust level of social distancing leaving the on court experience much the same as players are familiar with. IRC will continue to update its response to covid-19 using the latest guidance from the CDC, Indiana Department of Health, Marion County Health Department and the USTA .

  • All on court players, members or guests, are required to complete the IRC Covid19 waiver. Please click here to complete your waiver.
  • To limit congestion in the lobby areas, we request that all on court players have an advanced registration/reservation and make payment in advance of arrival. 
    • Payment may be made through a players card on file or house charge.
  • All visitors and players to IRC are encouraged to:
    • Stay home if you or anyone in your household is exhibiting flu or covid19 like symptoms.
    • Wash or sanitize your hands before and after play or visiting.

Why am I being required to have an advanced reservation and payment?
