    Recreation: Tennis
  • Overview

    The pre-eminent expression of lifelong learning in the United States, Chautauqua Institution comes alive each summer with a unique mix of fine and performing arts, lectures, interfaith worship and programs, and recreational activities. Over the course of nine weeks, more than 100,000 people visit Chautauqua and participate in programs, classes and community events for all ages — all within the beautiful setting of a historic lakeside village. As a community, we celebrate, encourage and study the arts and treat them as integral to all of learning, and we convene the critical conversations of the day to advance understanding through civil dialogue.

    Responsibilities

    The Tennis Center at Chautauqua Institution consists of 8 hydro grid, fast dry, clay courts; a pro shop; a maintenance shed and a storage shed. We offer memberships, daily play, lessons and clinics during the nine week summer season. The full tennis season runs mid May to mid October, weather permitting. The summer season hours of operation are 7am-10pm daily. There are two illuminated courts for nighttime play. During the fall and spring, limited hours of operation are offered at the pro shop.

    • Maintenance needs include setting up the courts in the spring and taking them down in the fall (wind screens, nets, water jugs, lines and smaller equipment).
    • During the Institutes busy 9-week summer season (June -August), raking and/or sweeping of the courts and lines is necessary periodically throughout the day.

    Qualifications
