Randy King was born and raised just outside Iowa City, Iowa where he attended the University of Iowa. He recently retired from a career as a fine wine buyer, fine wine retailer and consultant. Randy and his husband moved to Provincetown in the spring of 2017, and spent the next three summers here and traveled to other places during the winter months. They decided to make Provincetown their year-round home in 2019 after realizing their fondness for other places did not quite compare to their everlasting love for Provincetown.
The Provincetown Tennis Club features five green Har-Tru clay courts and two Omni (synthetic grass) courts. Players are required to sweep the courts, brush the lines, and remove all rubbish from the courts upon completion of play. Courts are available for reservation by members one week in advance. Guests are limited to four play sessions total during the months of July and August, not including lessons, clinics, and drop-in social doubles events. To reserve a court call the front desk at (508) 487-9574 between 8am and 6pm.
