Wayne NJ Racquet Club membership soars during COVID pandemic


WAYNE — Tennis once separated commoners from the upper crust of society.

But members of the Wayne Racquet Club, with six outdoor courts at a 3.3-acre facility, have long sworn off caste systems and pecking orders.

If you can grip a tennis ball, they want you to join their friendly league on Colfax Road.

Their down-to-earth approach to the sport is being noticed, as the club’s leadership is reporting gains in membership that have seldom been seen in its 48-year existence.

Deborah Blood, the club’s president, attributed much of its initial growth to the COVID-19 pandemic. When many indoor tennis clubs were forced to close at the height of the outbreak, she said, her organization stayed open.

“The object is for everyone to find a home here,” Blood said at the club this week.
