Burke Centre Conservancy (BCC) is asking residents and other parties about their active use of the BCC tennis courts. The Tennis Task Force Committee is looking at new ways to program, allocate resources and improve the overall experience of BCC courts. The survey will help us understand who is actively and passively using our facilities. BCC Tennis Courts include courts at the Woods, Oaks, Commons, Landing and Ponds neighborhoods.
*If, at any time, you are asked to leave the courts or to wait for longer periods than discussed in the tennis rules (see below), by anyone, due to tennis lessons being given or otherwise, you are encouraged to contact the Conservancy office at (703) 978-2928 to report it. After-hours: (866) 878-2430*
