Reopening protocols for the tennis courts are implemented following the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health’s guidelines and are consistent with safe play practices issued by the United States Tennis Association (USTA), International Tennis Federation (ITF), and the United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA).  These guidelines include safety practices that are to be implemented before, during, and after play to ensure protections against infections.

Help to keep the tennis courts open by reading and following all informational and instructional signage posted throughout the tennis courts.

The following safety practices shall serve as ‘Play It Safe’ Tennis Guidelines:

  • Maintain physical distancing of 6 feet at all times
  • Wear a face covering at all times, except during play
  • Bring your own racket and balls. Write your own initials on each ball and only handle your own tennis balls
  • Use your racket/foot to pick up balls and hit them to your opponent. Avoid using your hands to pick up the balls
  • No group gatherings
  • No waiting on the courts
  • Arrive as close as possible to when you are going to play, and leave the court as soon as reasonably possible after play
  • Participants are instructed to bring water and hand sanitizer or disinfecting wipes to wash and sanitize hands frequently
  • Avoid sharing food, drinks or towels
  • If you need to sneeze or cough, do so into a tissue or upper sleeve
  • Only singles play permitted
  • One-hour minimum play may be enforced on heavy traffic days
  • Doors, entrances, and/or gates are left open during normal operational hours
  • Consider taking extra precautions such as wearing gloves

Do not play if:

  • You are exhibiting any symptoms of the coronavirus: mild to severe respiratory illness with fever, cough and difficulty breathing, or other symptoms identified by the CDC
