Mayor Ravi Bhalla and Stevens President Nariman Farvardin today announced that fully vaccinated and boosted Hoboken residents will have access to utilize four tennis courts at Stevens from June 6th through August 28th and the indoor swimming pool throughout the year.
Hoboken residents will have access to the tennis courts on the northern end of the campus free of charge between the hours of 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. seven days per week and will also have access to the pool in Schaefer Athletic Center for a fee (see below); summer hours are weekdays from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. until August 31.
“Providing additional tennis court and pool access, through our partnership with Stevens, will provide even more recreation opportunities for Hoboken residents this summer,” Bhalla said in a statement.
“On behalf of all Hoboken tennis players and swimmers, thank you to President Farvardin and his team for helping make this possible once again this year.”
“We are proud of our partnership with Mayor Bhalla and the city of Hoboken, and we are happy to make these facilities available to our neighbors,” added Farvardin.
Hoboken residents who would like to sign-up to utilize the tennis courts and swimming pool must first register here and provide contact info, government ID or utility bill indicating a Hoboken address, and proof of full vaccination and at least one booster dose.
Stevens requires all on-campus students, as well as full-time and part-time employees to be fully vaccinated and at least one booster dose.
The form will then be processed by the City with an approval email from the City required before beginning the Stevens registration process. Residents must then register with Stevens at https://stevens.dserec.com/online/membership.
An email will be sent when the Stevens ID is available to be picked up at Stevens Card Services.
After receiving the approval email, the ID card can be picked up at Stevens Card Services in the Howe Center, Room 120, Monday through Friday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Residents can also purchase year-round pool access through daily, weekly, or monthly memberships by following the same registration process.
The pool fee is $20 for one day, $35 for two weeks, or $55 monthly, while senior citizens get a discounted rate of $15 per day, $25 for two weeks, or $35 monthly.
