SPRING 2020 SEASON
We truly hope you and your families are all safe and doing well during these challenging times. As of March 16th all MSC/CJB operations at all facilities are shut down and there will be a delay to the start of Spring seasons for all programs. At this point in time it is impossible to predict the exact date we will be able to resume operations and it is our intention to run the Spring season in its entirety once we are safely able to be back out on the courts. We appreciate you being a valued customer and we are committed to being back even bigger and better than ever. Please continue to be safe and we look forward to seeing you back out on the courts soon!
