I have not been to CI but at other clubs they are available for private use and not just for lessons. However, there needs to be a tennis GO present to hand them out at the court. When they are not there, the racquets are locked up. GOs are there in the morning during lessons and in the late afternoon usually 4-6 pm. (There usually is a drop-off slot to return racquets if the GOs are not around such as if you play late and the GOs have left.) Otherwise you might be able to borrow some from the main desk. However, I am not sure about this. The tennis GOs now seem to allow people to borrow balls but they can be pretty used at times. (However, CM seems to be better at replacing the practice balls.) You can buy balls at the boutique but they are expensive. I generally bring a can or two and if I use them, I leave them with the GOs. Hope this helps.
