Racquetball & Handball Guidelines

All players on the court must be racquetball or tennis members or have paid a racquetball guest fee, except at Wasilla.

Court users must check in for their court at the Member Support Desk before playing, or a $15 no show fee will be charged to account.

Gold Fitness members have walk-on privileges.

Court time is one hour long, beginning on the hour or half hour.

In order to reserve a court, members will be required to give his/her name, membership number and name(s) of playing partners.

Each membership (e.g. Family, Individual) may have only one advance reservation on the books at a time.

This reservation may be made up to four days in advance (the day of play being the fourth day) and may be made by anyone on the membership. As soon as that reservation is played off, anyone on the membership may sign up for another advance reservation.

A member’s advance reservation will be cancelled if the member has double booked or gives an invalid member number.

Someone on the reservation membership must be on the court during the reservation period.

Court reservations are not transferable to playing partner(s).

Advance reservation cancellation: reservations must be cancelled four hours in advance or a $15 no-show fee will be charged. A $15 no-show fee will be charged for failure to check in with the Member Support Desk to claim the reserved court. Must show your membership card at time of check in.

Play is limited to no more than twice daily under any circumstances.
