COVID-related update


We are happy to see people using the courts and lawns. We ask everyone to continue to follow precautions: maintaining social distance, wearing a mask when a 6-foot distance cannot be maintained, and not sharing equipment with those outside of your household. 

Social Center Courts


The main building lawn features a basketball court with adjustable rims, a gaga ball pit, four square, a badminton court, a playground with outdoor exercise equipment, and a futsal (court soccer) field with a rebound board.


These facitilies are reserved for our Teen Rec members during Teen Rec Hours, but community members are welcome to use the courts any other time. Hours can be found here.


If the office is open, community members are welcome to borrow equipment. We have balls of all shapes and sizes, racquets, frisbees, kan jam, bases and more.

Platform Tennis Court


Platform Tennis is a racket sport enjoyed by all ages. It is the only racket sport that can be enjoyed outdoors in cold weather. This unique appeal attracts people who desire fresh air, competition, and social engagement.

Membership is required to use our Platform Court. Click here for more information.

Tennis and Pickleball Courts


The Social Center offers tennis and pickleball courts on Lawrence Way.

The Social Center is a private 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. We do not charge membership fees to use our tennis/pickleball courts, and we are not municipal (tax-funded.) Thank you for considering donating to offset maintenance costs, which average $2,750 per year. Our goal is to preserve the courts and the availability of tennis and pickleball in our community. We appreciate those who join us in that endeavor.


Please complete this form before every visit.

We suggest the following donations:

Regular players - $10 per month

Visitors - $5 per couple, per day

We encourage local children to play for free.

We suggest $50 for those who would like to make a single donation for the season (generally nets are up mid-April until threat of frost/snow in November)


Equipment is available to borrow at the Social Center during open hours.

Donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law and can be made at the Social Center at 7626 US Route 9 or mailed to PO Box 205, Elizabethtown, NY 12932.


Lawrence Way can be found in between Egglefield Ford and the bridge at the intersection of Route 9 and River St. Click here for directions to courts.


Players may use our Facebook group "Social Center Pickleball and Tennis" to arrange meeting times or find playing partners. 

During winter months, the Social Center sponsors recreational pickleball at ELCS on Tuesday nights at 6:15. See the calendar for dates and our Fitness Classes & Groups page for details.
