Night Tennis & Tennis Light Tag HoldersTennis court lights are in operation 7 nights a week from July 8 through December 26, 2020 (updated 12/3/2020), from 6 - 9:30 pm. Use of the Hunnewell Tennis courts anytime after 6 pm, requires the purchase of a seasonal tennis tag. Revenue from tag sales offsets the cost of the lights. Please follow and abide by the Hunnewell Tennis Court Rules.

| Tennis Tag Pricing
|Kids (17 & under)||$30||n/a|
In an attempt to make sure paying tag holders are able to use tennis courts at night, every tag holder will receive an "safety green" colored lanyard along with their tennis tag. When you arrive to the Hunnewell Tennis courts and find an open court, please take your lanyard/tag and loop the lanyard/tag around the Washington Street side fence closest to your desired court. This will show that you are a paying Tennis Tag holder and that you are using that respective court.
We hope this procedure will show who the paying Tennis Tag holders are without having to be confrontational to someone who is not. A Recreation Department employee will periodically check to ensure night time players have purchased a Night Time Tennis Tag. Please limit the number of balls used on your court. Please be respectful and refrain from using a ball hopper during peak times.
Night time tennis requires a tag. After 6 p.m. you must have a tennis tag issued by the Recreation Department. Purchase of Tennis Tags pays for the cost of operating the lights. We are always looking for feedback regarding this program, so please feel free to contact at your convenience.
No private lessons are to be taught. Refer to Use of Public Facilities for Private Gain policy. (Exceptions must be authorized by the Recreation Department.)
