Tennis Court Rules

Due to County restrictions, the LRD is not allowing guests on the tennis courts at this time. Tennis courts are for members only. (dated may 23, 2020)

Tennis courts are to be used by members and their guests only. ‘Family’ members may bring up to 3 guests to use the courts. ‘Couples’ members may bring up to two guests and ‘Individal’ members may bring one free guest. At least one member must be present with the guests at all times on the courts. Guest fees apply for any guests over the allotted number. An individual may be a guest at the LRD for a maximum of three times per month. Additional visits are subject to the daily use fee. The fee for additional guests for members is $10 per day. Ladera residents who are not members may use the courts for a fee of $10 per day. The fee for non-resident non-members is $15 per day. Repeat guests are encouraged to join the LRD. Please note: Family members residing in the same household do not count as free guests.

Time Limits

Please sign your name on the chalkboard located above the water fountain across from Court 3. Please post your starting time before beginning play.

Singles Play – 1 hour

Doubles Play – 1-1/2 hours

Time limits apply when all four courts are filled. Courts do not have to be relinquished when there are available courts.

If the courts are filled when you arrive, place your racket in the next available space in the racket caddy. The first player waiting takes the first available court. All players must be present to claim a court.

Court Protection

Please wear only non-marring tennis shoes.

No skateboards or wheeled vehicles of any kind are allowed.

Dogs are not allowed on the courts at any time.

Two of the courts are washed every other week to preserve the surface. Two courts will always be available for play. Check the sign by the courts for closure times.

Court Lights

Access to court lights is limited to pass-holders with a key. Keys may be obtained from the manager for an annual fee of $25. Court lighting is set to go off at 10:30PM. Please switch off the lights when play is completed. A full clockwise turn of the switch sets the lights for one hour. Adults (18 and older) have priority on Court 4 (near Laderaland) after dark.

PLEASE NOTE: We will be making periodic membership checks at the courts. Please ensure that at least one person on the court is an LRD member or guest fees will apply. We reserve the right to ask people to leave if rules are not being followed.

Fees for Ladera Residents are $10 per person per day. Fees for Non-Ladera Residents are $15 per person per day.

All lessons, league play, and tournaments must be cleared with the Manager. Only LRD-appointed instructors may use the courts to teach lessons.
