Van Dyke Farms
Tennis and Pickleball
 

 
The Van Dyke Farms development was built around the Tennis Center Clubhouse and associated tennis, basketball, racquetball, soccer, baseball and playground facilities.  The developer's wife, Mary Shannon, one of the three original Board of Directors, was an avid tennis player.  She was instrumental in the construction of eight outstanding hard courts, two of which are now lighted (Courts 3 & 4), and two of which are now double lined for both tennis and pickleball play (Courts 7 & 8).  The courts host play at all levels and are available for use by members and their guests as part of the neighborhood's common area amenities.  These eight courts are complemented with four regulation size racquetball courts used for tennis, soccer, pickleball, squash, handball, volleyball, hockey and lacrosse training.  Keys are available via the property manager at lcoleman@greenacre.com to gain access to control the lights, access restrooms, water fountains and the observation deck. 
 
Tennis and Pickleball Play is Governed by the Association's Van Dyke Farms Common Areas Rules and Regulations
 
Tennis and Pickleball Play is on a First Come First Served basis but is limited to the times and courts available for residents and their guests as shown on the Summer 2024 Schedule  and the Fall 2024 Schedule. The dates of the three USTA Teams in the Fall of 2024 will be posted August 2024.
