Courts Open for Registration

Tennis provides a safe environment for players to engage in a healthy and active lifestyle. Because tennis does not require any direct person‐to‐person contact or sharing of equipment, players may enjoy the health benefits that tennis offers while maintaining safe physical distancing in compliance with CDC and State and Local Public Health Guidelines. These guidelines are subject to change based on community adherence and Public Health Orders.

Reservations must be made online. Reservations can be made up to 3 days prior to the reservation and up to the minute before the scheduled reservation. Phone-in and Walk-in reservations will not be accepted. For questions regarding court reservations or for more information, please call (310) 802-5448.
