Located in downtown Plano, the Interurban Railway Museum is housed in a building that served as a primary stop on the Texas Electric Railway that ran from Denison to Dallas beginning in 1908. On December 31, 1948, the Denison to Dallas Interurban made its last run. The station remained closed until early 1990 when a complete restoration of the building was completed and the building was converted into a museum by the City of Plano. The museum exhibit contains many artifacts associated with the Interurban Line, as well as a history of Plano. Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. weekdays and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. Group tours of the museum may be arranged in advance by calling (972) 941-2117. There is no entrance fee; however, contributions are greatly appreciated.

Lessons, leagues and tournaments are offered on a regular basis for those wanting organized activities. For players not wanting a structured activity, many courts are open for reservations.

Registration Tennis registration may be completed by using Internet, in-person or by telephone starting Saturday, January 4. Please see “How to Register” information for detailed instructions.

Hours of Operation Monday thru Sunday -- *7:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. *Tennis Center opens at 9 a.m. from October 1 thru March 31. The tennis center may close early due to inclement weather and/or lack of court demand.

972-941-7250

Non-Resident $390 $230 $130

Reservations

Court reservations may be made in person or by telephone at (972) 941-7170, option 5 between 9 a.m. and closing, Monday through Sunday. A person may have only one reservation at a time (you must finish your first reservation before a second reservation can be made).

Instruction

Teen-Adult classes have a minimum of six students and a maximum of ten students per class. Youth classes have a maximum of eight students. Pee Wee classes have a maximum of 6 students. To avoid cancellation of a class, a class may “make” with less than six students, but with a reduced number of sessions. Classes at the same level and similar age groups may be combined at the discretion of High Point staff. Any group of two or more players may schedule a special class by contacting High Point staff at (972) 941-7170. Group lessons are very popular and some classes fill very quickly. To assure a continuous chain of instruction, it is recommended that students enroll for multiple sessions at the time of initial registration. For example, a student should enroll for a Beginner session in the first session, an Advanced Beginner I group in the second session, and an Advanced Beginner II group in the third session.

10 & Under Tennis

High Point participates year round in the QuickStart Tennis play format, a national program designed to help children learn, rally, and play quickly. Using shorter and lighter racquets, balls that are easy to keep in play, and court dimensions tailored to smaller players, youngsters ages 5-10 pick up the game very quickly. Many young players are able to keep the ball in play and play points just like older and more experienced players. As students’ games improve and as they mature physically, they move to traditional rackets, balls, and courts. QuickStart is a great way to introduce children to the great game of tennis!

Advancement from Course to Course

Players are encouraged to continue learning and playing through progressively more challenging courses. The goal is to have students playing tennis (in some form) as soon as possible. As a player improves, more course time is spent on point-play like situations. For children, the instructional/play sequence is: Beginner or Pee Wee I lessons (depending on age of child), Advanced Beginner or Pee Wee II lessons and Future Stars or Pre Junior Development (Play and Instructional Programs), Competitive and Elite Junior Development. For Teens, the sequence is Beginner, Advanced Beginner I, Advanced Beginner II, Learn N Play, Future Stars, Competitive, and Elite Junior Development. For Adults, the sequence is: Beginner, Advanced Beginner, Learn and Play, High Point intra-facility leagues, Tennis Competitor of Dallas leagues, and USTA Adult Leagues.

Great! We offer several convenient ways for you to register including: Internet, in person and by telephone. INTERNET REGISTRATION “You’re first in line when you are on-line”

FASTEST Method

www.planoparks.org

Leisure Online

Actually, when registration begins each session, 750 people (or Internet connections) are allowed at one time. We found that if we allow more connections the Web pages load too slowly for even the most patient person. If you are not one of the first 750 connections you will get a message that reads “Leisure OnLine is currently busy due to high demand.” After the first 30 minutes of the start of registration the demand subsides allowing quick and easy access to the site. Residents may register on-line beginning at 8 am on January 4. Be sure to get an Individual ID and Family PIN by calling any of our centers. Please call prior to the first day of registration because heavy call volume on this first day makes it difficult to get through on the phone. You can also request this information by e-mail 24/7 in the “My Account” section of Leisure OnLine if the e-mail address matches the one on your account or e-mail customer care. Have your Individual ID, Family PIN, course numbers and credit card information ready when you log on. Once logged on, you can shop, pay and print your receipts from your own computer. www.planoparks.org *Non-resident registration begins at 5 am on January 6.

INCLUSION POLICY

WAITING LISTS

To ensure the safety and enjoyment of others in recreation programs, participants are expected to display appropriate behaviors.

Parks and Recreation staff will discuss behaviors of concern with the participant and his/her family when necessary.

If a course is full you may ask to have your name placed on the waiting list for that course at no cost. The computer system maintains the waiting list in the order persons are placed there. When cancellation by a participant in the course occurs, the computer notifies staff members of an opening and of the first person named on the list. Staff will notify, in waiting list order, the persons on the list and offer the opportunity to register for the course at that time. Payment for the course will be required at the time of registration. If you are contacted from a wait list and enrolled for that course, you will be removed from any wait lists for similar courses.

GENERAL INFORMATION PLANO STAGES Plano Stages, a division of Plano Parks and Recreation, is committed to providing the community with opportunities to enjoy quality music, dance, theatre and cultural events at any of our three publicly owned and operated performance venues: the Courtyard Theater, the Amphitheater at Oak Point Park and the Cox Building Playhouse. The Courtyard Theater, recipient of the Greater Dallas Planning Council’s 2007 Urban Design award, was the first gymnasium built for the Plano School District. In 2001, the gymnasium was converted into the stellar, 325-capacity theater we know and love today. The Amphitheater at Oak Point Park, a beautiful, 1,200-capacity bowl-style venue, is tucked deep into the heart of Plano’s 800-acre Oak Point Park and Nature Preserve. The “Plano Amp,” as it is locally known, houses major concerts, cultural festivals and special events of all kinds. The Amp’s picturesque and open-air setting makes it an ideal location to enjoy an evening of entertainment. The Cox Building Playhouse, a 90-capacity black-box style space, is a versatile, state-of-the-art venue used by local performers and touring acts, special performances and meetings. Calendars for all three venues can be found at planostages.com. Each one of these handsome and well-maintained spaces is available for rent by the general public, non-profit organizations and corporate groups. For more information, please call 972-941-5611.
