Rainout/Inclement Weather

The decision to cancel lessons is never an easy one. We will do the best we can to conduct lessons each day. However, the slightest amount of rain causes tennis courts to become slick, and safety is our number one priority. Please check the Bismarck Parks and Recreation District website ALERT bar on the front page of the website, our social media pages, or call the office at 701-222-6455. We also send any changes with lessons via email, so please make sure your current email is on file and also listed on your child(ren)’s account(s). Due to the short session, we are unable to offer makeups because of weather cancellations. If this is a concern, we suggest signing up for indoor evening lessons to avoid missing classes because of weather.
