There is no better surface for playing tennis than red clay, and there is no better club in Northern NJ for red clay than Berkeley in Orange, NJ.
Red clay forms a soft surface that allows for graceful sliding, which is not possible on hard courts. The clay slows the ball, extending points and bringing out the tactical beauty of tennis.
Play on clay. Your knees will thank you.
This member-owned club welcomes players of all levels. Our top players are rated 4.5, and regularly join with intermediates for doubles and round robins.
Our ladders allow any player of any level to challenge another to a game. Want some excitement? Challenge a hard-hitting half-your-age tyro to a set.
We play singles, doubles and mixed doubles, hold an end of season Tournament and field Women's and Men's Teams.
Berkeley's six courts are open April through October, from 8:30 AM to dusk, 7 days a week. Last fall we kept two courts open through December, due to the mild winter.
It is rare to have to wait for a court, even on weekends.
Berkeley is known for its warm and friendly atmosphere. Come and play with your own partners or pick up a game on the fly. You can even bring non-members a few times a year.
We hold open houses, round robins,clinics, ladders, tournaments, "Heavy Hitter Thursdays," and social events including outdoor BBQs, "Breakfast at Wimbledon," and an annual Gala Dinner.
Berkeley 2014 is almost here! After the long winter, we are planning our new season and aiming for an opening later this month. Our pro is on board, the water is turned on, club clean-up and court prep are being readied. The Women's Teams' first match is April 23 and our first Open House is scheduled for Saturday, May 3. We are planning the calendar and look forward to seeing you soon.
Membership forms for the 2014 season are available.
Members now may pay dues via credit card. Please see the description of Berkeley's committees and indicate your volunteer interests on the application form.
