Stevens to provide access to tennis courts for Hoboken residents this summer

The Stevens Institute of Technology is granting access to the four tennis courts for Hoboken residents through August 18, 2019. Hoboken residents above the age of 18 will have access to the tennis courts on the northern end of the campus between the hours of 8:00 am and 8:30 pm. All interested residents will need to sign up at the Stevens Athletic Center for a visitor ID which will grant access to the courts for the designated times.

“I am thrilled that Hoboken residents will once again have access to the Stevens tennis courts this summer,” said Mayor Ravi S. Bhalla. “We are proud of our partnership between the City and Stevens, and I thank President Farvardin and his staff for allowing our residents to use the courts.”  

Additional information regarding tennis court access for Hoboken residents:

Hoboken residents 18 years of age and older may use the set of four tennis courts located just off Ninth Street on the north end of the Stevens campus.

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 3rd - Sunday, August 18. Please note that the courts may close during this period for resurfacing and maintenance.

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

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.
