The first few days of the “soft opening” of the upper tennis and pickleball courts has been largely well received. The Board of Directors met Wednesday night to evaluate usage, procedure, and amend the emergency rules first adopted May 6, 2020. As crowding has not been an issue, and based on member feedback, the Board voted to allow doubles play for both pickleball and tennis. Also, now during

is scheduled for Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 7:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m., and Monday and Wednesday between 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Reservations can now be made for the upper courts 72 hours in advance. You can find more information and an updated copy of the rules by clicking
And now we have some bad news. On Wednesday, the Board of Directors had approved the opening of the Lap Pool for active use. Staff was moving forward with preparing for the reopening when we received word that per the order of the Governor regarding swimming pools, Orange County Health Department is unable to allow us to open our pools. The Board is preparing a letter to the State in support of opening our pools with safety procedures in place, but as of the time I am sending this email we are unable to open until allowed to do so by the Health Department under the State order. I think it goes without saying that this is out of our hands, and the Board is extremely disappointed with this turn of events.
