(Hoboken, NJ) May 9, 2018 - As a part of Stevens Institute of Technology’s ongoing partnership with the Hoboken community, Stevens will once again will provide access during the summer months to its four tennis courts on the northern part of campus to Hoboken residents aged 18 and above.

Through the programs and partnerships under Stevens Connects,  Stevens’ community engagement initiative, Hoboken community members are invited to enjoy a variety of educational programming, lectures, artistic and cultural events, and sporting events held on the Stevens campus throughout the year. Stevens is pleased to offer the community an additional venue for recreation by making the tennis courts available to Hoboken neighbors and friends.

“Thanks to the generosity of President Farvardin, scores of Hoboken residents will be able to use the tennis courts at Stevens this summer,” said Ravi Bhalla, Mayor of Hoboken. “The City of Hoboken is grateful that Stevens and its Athletic Department continues to make their facilities available to our community.”

Location 

Hoboken residents age 18 and over may use the set of four tennis courts located just off of Ninth Street on the north end of the Stevens campus. The set of two courts on the south side of campus are not available for use and are restricted to the Stevens community.

Requirements 

All Hoboken residents age 18 and over interested in using the courts must first obtain a Stevens visitor ID card. The first step is to complete the Athletics Facilities Use and Release form which can be picked up at the Schaefer Athletic Center’s reception desk Monday-Friday between 8am and 8:30pm. The reception desk is located in the main lobby of the building and can only be accessed through the front entrance. 

All individuals must present valid proof of Hoboken residence. Upon completion of the form, a Stevens visitor ID will be created for each person and distributed on the same visit. This ID must be present with the individual at all times while on the Stevens campus and a second form of photo ID must be available as well. No guests are allowed; only those people with a valid Stevens ID are allowed to use the courts.

Please note that anyone who participated in this program last year and had an ID, must complete all paperwork again and will be assigned a new ID card.

Dates and Hours

The courts are available for use Monday-Sunday from 8am-8:30pm from Friday, June 1-Friday, August 17. 

Parking 

No parking is available on campus for those individuals using the tennis courts.

Rules 

All posted rules at the tennis facility must be followed. A one-hour time limit is in effect when the courts are full. Patrons may not prop open the door to the courts nor let other individuals into the courts. All tennis players must swipe in to the facility on their own. Anyone who is found in violation of these rules will lose court privileges for the remainder of the summer.
