Montclair Township residents will need to obtain tennis permits to play on municipal courts at Mountainside, Rand, Canterbury and Nishuane parks beginning May 3. 

Court usage is limited to one hour.

Residents (ages 5 to adult) may apply for free 2021 tennis permits through the Department of Recreation and Cultural Affairs. Proof of residency is required.

Each permit holder will be allowed one out-of-town guest for court play. COVID-19 rules and restrictions must be followed and are posted at the tennis courts. All players must have their tennis permits when using the facilities. 

No private professional instruction is permitted at any time. Group lessons are under the direction of the Department of Recreation and Cultural Affairs. 

SAVE MONTCLAIR LOCAL: We need your support, and we need it today. The journalism you value from Montclair Local, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, depends on the community's support — we exist because the old model of selling ads alone just can't fund journalism at the level we endeavor to provide. That's why you've seen other local newsrooms cut back staff or shut down entirely. Montclair Local was created because we believe that's unacceptable; the community's at its best when triumphs are celebrated, when power is held to account, when diverse lived experiences are shared — when the community is well-informed.

Montclair is seeking to raise $230,000 from donors, members and grantors between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31 to put us on firm footing for 2022, and continue supporting the hard work of our journalists into the new year and beyond. Visit to see how we're doing and make your contribution.
