Temporary use rules:

  • Maintain six-foot distancing from others at all times.
  • Don’t congregate on courts, in common areas, or parking lots. Limit or stagger playing groups.
  • Play singles – doubles play with household members is preferred best practice. Wash hands with soap and water and bring hand sanitizer to courts.
  • Clean and sanitize paddles, rackets and water bottles. Do not share equipment.
  • Avoid touching gates, fences, nets, benches, etc.
  • Use your paddle, racket, or shoe to pass out-of-play balls. Consider wearing gloves to help avoid touching pickleballs or tennis balls.
  • Coordinate your group so each person serves with a different colored or numbered ball. If that’s not an option, mark personal balls for individual use.
  • Virtual handshakes only.
