ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP RATES:  Effective August, 1st Paramount Tennis Club will be increasing the annual membership rates between $20 and $25.  The last time Paramount had an increase in the annual membership rates was in 2010, when Paramount Westlake opened.  Due to rising costs associated with information systems support and software licensing, this increase will help absorb some of the cost. The new rates will be posted at the front desk and on our website.  As always, we greatly appreciate your support of Paramount Tennis Club.
