The new tennis court (located in Gateway Park, at Coltrane Court and Angelou Street) features a True Blue Plexipave (medium pace) acrylic court surface with light green outer court and timer-controlled lighting beginning at dusk. Reservations are being taken for this court only on a pilot program basis. Currently, Orange County is in the most restrictive (purple) tier of California’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy. Under these restrictions, the City of Irvine recommends single play only unless with members of the same household. Please wear court-appropriate footwear such as sneakers or indoor soccer shoes—no marking soles or cleats! Oversized tennis balls and soccer balls can damage court surface and may not be used. Please review and follow all official court rules listed below.
– Courts may be reserved for up to 90 minutes per day per person, reservable in 30 minute units. In order to reserve the court, you will need a Uhills.org account. If you don’t have an account, you can create one here.
– Scroll down on this page to make your reservation. You may book up to 90 minutes per day. Be sure to enter a number in the Number of Guests field. Please be respectful and do not book the court during the same time frame more than twice per week. Users who fail to respect this honor system may have reservations cancelled in order to allow all residents to have equal access to the court.
– Once users have booked a reservation, they will receive an email notification including a reservation ID number. In addition, the reservation will be viewable on the Uhills Events Calendar https://uhills.org/events/
– To cancel a reservation you have booked, go to https://uhills.org/my-reservations/
– Residents who show up more than 10 minutes after the start of their reserved time forfeit their reservation and the court becomes available as a walk-on until the next reservation is scheduled to begin on that court.
If a court is not reserved OR if a reservation is forfeited, the court is available on a first-come, first-served basis and is subject to traditional University Hills usage policies (players must vacate court after one hour if others are waiting AND/OR must vacate to accommodate the next reservation).
– Example 1: Prospective walk-on players arrive at a court that shows no reservation for that time slot, but must vacate court either after one hour (if other walk-on players are waiting) OR when the next reservation is scheduled to begin (and players who reserved that time slot are present), whichever comes first.
– Example 2: Prospective walk-on players arrive at a court that shows a reservation for that time slot, but players who reserved the court are not present 10 minutes after their reservation is scheduled to begin.
