Each PCT group must have a captain who submits the necessary information. Court time is the group’s responsibility and cannot be cancelled. Members wishing to resign must find a replacement and notify the captain. It’s the captain’s responsibility to notify The Summit. The reservation form must be turned in to The Summit Member Service Office to secure the requested time slots. All applications received are subject to availability.
