The new tennis court features a True Blue Plexipave (medium pace) acrylic court surface with light green otter 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, only single play is allowed. Best practice is to play singles with members of your own household only. 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.
- 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.
- 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.
