The Vashon Tennis Club has opened its courts at the Vashon Golf & Swim Club under a new inflatable dome.

Tennis Club co-founder Marcus Gautesen said the dome is open from 5 a.m. until 11 p.m. seven days a week. A special introductory racket membership costs $50 a month for unlimited play for the rest of the season, but no membership is necessary to join any of the classes offered.

Steve Walters, a USPTA Elite professional coach from Seattle, will instruct classes at the facility on Mondays and Thursdays; Gautesen said the club is “lucky to have him.”

The schedule for classes under the dome includes additional lessons and matches; Gautesen said any child who joins a class taught by Steve can play free for the rest of the week.
