A Member Account Representative can assist you with any changes to your membership, whether you want to add or delete family members or upgrade or downgrade your membership category. Please call, send a written request, or stop by the Membership Office. Some membership changes may incur a fee.

How do I reserve a racquetball or squash court?

You may reserve a court for one hour up to three days in advance; Phone and in-person reservations are taken as of 8:30am when the Activities Desk opens. You must provide the names of all players when making the reservation.

How do I reserve a tennis court?

If you are a Tennis Member, you may reserve a court up to three days in advance; phone reservations are taken as of 12:00pm, and in-person reservations are taken as of 1:00pm for 3-day advance bookings. You may reserve one hour for singles and one and a half hours for doubles. You must provide the names of all players when making the reservation.

How does the EFT billing system work?

You authorize us to charge your credit card or debit your checking account on a monthly basis for your monthly dues plus any in-club purchases you make on your house account (restaurant, spa, personal training, etc.). Dues are billed in advance and club purchases are billed in arrears. The EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer) draft will be processed on the first business day of each month. About 10 days prior to each EFT draft, you'll receive a bill that itemizes all the charges on your account, so you know the amount that will be charged to your credit card or debited from your checking account. Example: On August 1, EFT will be processed for your August monthly dues and for your club charges from the June 11 to July 10 time period.

If my child is not on my membership, may I bring my child to Kids World?

Yes, you may bring your child to Kids World for up to three hours in a day; a $5 per hour childcare fee will be charged. (Children who are on a membership receive three complimentary hours of childcare per day.)

May I drop my child off in Kids World and run errands?

No, you must remain on club property when your child is in Kids World. However, if your child is enrolled in a supervised club program such as Kids Camp or a dance class, you are not required to stay on property, but you must return on time to pick up your child at the end of the camp or class.

May I freeze my membership if I will be out of town for an extended period or if I am injured?

Yes, on a one-time-per-calendar-year basis, you may place your membership on "inactive status" under the two scenarios above. Your membership account must be paid in full at the time of your request. Inactive status is granted for a minimum of two months and a maximum of six months. A $35 per month inactive fee is charged.

May I use other Renaissance ClubSport or ClubSport locations?

With GoldPLUS membership, you have unlimited access to ClubSport and Renaissance ClubSport properties. If you are not a GoldPLUS member and are interested in using other ClubSport locations, please contact a membership representative to upgrade.

What is the cancellation policy for massage appointments?

We require a 24-hour notice of cancellation for massage appointments. Without proper notice of cancellation, full payment will be charged.

When are pool lanes available for lap swimming?

There is always at least one lane reserved for lap swimming during all hours of operation, but there are frequently more lanes available. Check the Aquatics Schedule for details.

When are the pick-up basketball games?

Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 11:30am-1:30pm and Saturdays from 8:00-11:00am are the most popular times for pick-up games on the basketball courts. Check the Sports Schedule for other open play times.

When do you hold drop-in volleyball?

Tuesday and Thursday nights from 7:30-11:00pm.

Why do I still get a paper bill in the mail when I am signed up for EFT billing?

Since your monthly EFT amount may fluctuate due to club purchases, federal law requires us to give you advance notification of the amount being drafted each month. It gives you an opportunity to review your bill before the charge or debit is made on the first of the month. If you have any questions regarding the charges posted to your account, please contact a Member Account Representative.
