Tennis Reservations

Temporary EBCA Tennis Rules

(Adopted by the Board of Directors on April 28, 2020 & Amended on May 5, 2020 & May 14, 2020)


1. All players must agree to NOT play if they have any symptoms or exposure risks as listed by the CDC Guidelines.

2. All players must agree to practice social distancing at all times by standing at least 6 feet apart.

3. All players must agree to NOT congregate around the courts.

4. The tennis courts are open for play seven (7) days a week, from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.

5. Each court is limited to no more than four (4) players on each court at any given time or a family unit.

6. Court use is restricted to 60-minute use for singles and 90-minute use for doubles.

7. Players must use their own balls. The USTA recommends utilizing two different cans of tennis balls, with one player utilizing one set of numbered balls and the other player utilizing the other set of differently numbered balls and discarding them after use. Use your racquet/foot to pick up balls and hit them to your opponent.

8. Players must provide their own drinking water (do not share water). All water will be shut-off.

9. Please consider bringing your own hand sanitizer and using after touching any surfaces in the court areas.

10. All common use equipment (ball machine, ball collector, balls) have been temporarily removed from the court area. This is being done in order to reduce the risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus.

11. Leave the tennis court doors ajar to avoid the need for touch.

12. Players that do not adhere to these rules may lose their court privileges.



  1. These rules are intended to temporarily supplement existing tennis rules. Where there is a conflict between the existing rules and the temporary rules, the temporary rules prevail.
  2. The Board has passed these temporary rules in order to allow residents to conditionally use a portion of the Association’s amenities. With that stated, it is the Board’s expectation that all residents will comply with these temporary rules. If any resident is found to be in non-compliance with any of these, or any other Association rules, the Board reserves the right to enforce said rules as it deems appropriate within its authority.
