- Wear Sunscreen! Apply sunscreen before you arrive and bring a small bottle with you in case you need more later.
- Bring a cushion pad to sit on. Metal bleachers at community courts are hard and can feel quite uncomfortable after a while.
- Bleachers at this location are on the end courts. There are also plenty of tables and chairs, but this is not the best area for watching a match.
- Rest Rooms are in the pro shop.
- The tennis courts are in the Plantation Central Park Complex, and plenty of parking is available nearby.
- Typically, the schedule of play is released the day prior. If possible, review the order of play before getting to the grounds. This way, you’ll have an idea of where you should sit.
- Wear breathable, light-colored clothing (and a hat and sunglasses).
- Check the weather the day before and bring a small umbrella in case of rain.
