The Moorestown Field Club has six of the nicest outdoor courts in South Jersey. Two courts are underground watered Har-Tru that keeps the surface in prime playing condition throughout the season. Our other four courts were recently resurfaced and have new nets as well as state of the art California fencing. There are also two pickle ball courts. All courts have new windscreens to help with visibility and wind blockage during breezy days. In between the courts is a tennis house and nice covered patio area with plenty of seating for relaxing before and after play. Also available to members is a new Playmate ball machine with remote control and stationed directly next to a hard court.
