- Exemplary sportsmanship
- Equality among members
- Relaxed atmosphere
ERC Mission Statement
The ERC is a unique retreat in beautiful surroundings where members can play tennis and paddle, relax, swim and socialize in a friendly and inclusive environment. The club is seen as a great value and is is much more affordable than other clubs in the area. The ERC is a place where everybody knows your name. It is more than a club; it is a community.
The club is situated on a 10-acre parcel of land in Easton, which is surrounded by protected watershed acreage owned by the local water company. This affords us privacy amid peaceful surroundings.
The club currently has six Hydro Har-Tru tennis courts with state-of-the-art court lighting for night play during the season and two lighted platfrom tennis courts for year-round play.
Our pool is the center of warm weather off-court activitiy and is staffed daily by certified lifeguards. Chidren's swim lessons and kids swim team are available. Lounges, chairs and umbrella tables and an awning-shaded area are provided as well. Our recently renovated pool hut has two bathrooms/changing rooms, a TV and lounge area, a soda machine and refrigerator/freezer for member use, along with two outdoor showers.
The main clubhouse contains a pro-shop, locker rooms, and a party facility compelete with bar, dance floor, kitchen, fireplace, ping pong table and wide screen TV. A renovation of the main clubhouse was completed in 2018. Near the outdoor pool area we have a basketball court, children's playground, and hitting wall. On weekends during the summer, the club staff offers grilled food, but members are always welcome to bring their own picnic meals or snacks.
For a daily fee, ERC members are welcome to bring guests to use our facilities. Certain special events are also open to guests. Members may also rent the clubhouse for their exclusive use during the off-season.
Staffing and Organizational Structure
ERC has a resident USPTA-certified tennis pro, an assistant tennis pro, and an APTA-certified platform tennis pro. A full spectrum of individual and group lesson and clinics is available at rates set by the club. The resident tennis pro also serves as the director of the Kids Tennis Camp, which runs through the summer months.
The day-to-day operations of the club are manaaged by a professional club manager and his staff. However, committees staffed by club members take a very active role in determining the club's operations and priorities. Our committees have exciting plans for changes and additions to our programs and physical facilites for the future. All new members are encouraged to serve on the committee of their choice.
The club's board of directors is elected by the members. The board then elects the club's officers. The officers and board members meet year-round to govern and conduct the business of the club. These meetings are open to the general membership and the board may be addressed by prior request.
