All users must have signed an online Waiver and Code of Conduct.
  • Wait in your car or outside until your designated court time. Court times are staggered, each court begins at a different time. There is a 15-minute gap between the end of one reservation and the beginning of the next reservation on the same court.
  • There will be a health screening station with a touchless temperature check just outside of the Tennis Center.
