Frequently Asked Questions

How do I book a court on ActiveNet?
Click this link to access the login page. Once you have logged in to your account, you can view courts 1-8 (indoor) and the outdoor courts. Select the court and timeframe, push reserve court, and follow the prompts to complete your transaction. We recommend you bookmark the link for quick access https://activenet.portal.

How long can I book a court for?
75 minutes. For 30 or 60-minute bookings, call 503-823-3190 for availability. 

How many courts can I book per day?
One.

Can my friend or partner book the court and I play again?
No. Each tennis player is allowed to appear on one reservation and court per day, with a limit of 4 per week. The week is Sunday through Saturday.

What options do I have to play more than once a day?
Check with the front desk or call ahead at 503-823-3190. This is a day-of option only that applies to mixers, drills, and court reservations. If someone cancels and a court or space is available, you must get confirmation to use or join from PTC staff first. This day-of option will not count toward your daily and weekly use of the courts.

How can I see all eight indoor courts at once? 
As Active Net is updated, courts 1-8 will be visible under one view. Fewer clicks mean quicker access.

Can I register for programs and courts by phone?
Yes. The front desk opens at 6:45am. Call 503-823-3190.

Will I receive a confirmation once I book a court?
Yes. Once payment is completed, you will receive a confirmation that lists your court number, court time, and payment made. We recommend you retain a copy for your records.

How can I check my court reservation and classes in my ActiveNet account? 
When you book a court or register for a mixer or drill, you can view these by clicking My Account, and then View Family Members Schedule. In View Family Members Schedule, find your assigned court at the bottom of the reservation. All your bookings and activities will appear for the week.

How do I register for mixers and drills?
We recommend bookmarking the ActiveNet activities page. Once you’re logged in, you can find your mixer or drill by using the keyword or class number search. Effective January 17, you can book one drill session daily. If you have difficulty finding your mixer or drill, you can call the Customer Service Center at 503-823-2525.

Why can I only book one drill session per day?
Our drill sessions were created to improve the skills and abilities of all our players by receiving hands-on instruction from our pros. With a limited number of available sessions, waitlists are long. This new policy, booking one drill session per day, allows for more equity to receive instruction.   

What happens if I book back-to-back drill sessions?
We review all registrations for drill sessions. Anyone who books back-to-back sessions will be notified and one of the sessions will be canceled. If someone continues to book multiple drill sessions per day, forfeit of booking privileges may result.

I’m a PTC pass holder. Does this change to ActiveNet affect my benefits?
Yes. Beginning January 17, the PTC pass benefits will be modified. Pass holders will continue to get one free hour of court usage and use of the ball machine. Unfortunately, pass holders will no longer receive discounts on mixers, drills, or events. 

How do I get a discount on a mixer or drill if I can’t with my PTC pass?
Thanks to the Parks Local Option Levy (Parks Levy) city of Portland residents can register for a free Access Pass to receive an ongoing discount of 25, 50, 75, or 90% based on financial need. The pass is valid for 12 months from the date of enrollment. No proof of income is required.

What do I need to do when I arrive to play?
Please check in at the front desk before going to your assigned court. If you are playing with others, those players must pay BEFORE playing; this includes those playing on outside courts.

What do I (PTC tennis player) need to do if I don’t have an account?
Create an ActiveNet account either in-person at PTC, via phone by calling 503-823-3190, or create an account online by clicking here. A helpful tutorial is also available on this page.

What if I have an account, but I forgot my password?

How do I change or update my account information?
Please call PTC at 503-823-3190 or the Customer Service Center at 503-823-2525 for additional help.

How do I cancel my court reservation?
You can cancel your reservation by calling PTC at 503-823-3190. Cancellations are required 24 hours in advance.

What happens if I forget to cancel my court reservation?
If you cancel within less than 24 hours, you will be charged the full $32.50 without a refund. If you cancel more than 24 hours before your scheduled reservation, then you will be charged a 20% cancellation fee of the booking charge.
