Court Guidelines
Which Court to Reserve
  • Tennis players should reserve Court 1, if available, and if not, reserve both 2A and 2B.
  • Pickleball players should reserve 2A or 2B. If neither are available, 1 may be reserved.
Hours and Days
  • Required between the hours of 7:00 AM and 9:00 PM. 
  • Reservations are not needed after 9:00 PM so anyone on the court at that time may continue to play.
  • Can be made in 30 minute-2 hour time slots.
  • May be made up to 5 days in advance.
  • May make multiple reservations in a day.
Open Rotation Play
Schedule a court, then contact other players. Lake Caroline residents may be emailed using the Member Directory, unless they opted out of the Directory.
 
Unable to Make Reservation
When clicking on a date, a window opens showing availability for that date. If you see a gray bar that means the slot is not available. That can be due to someone else reserving the spot, or due to a rule under Hours and Days. For example, if you attempt to reserve 6 days out you will only see gray bars. 
 
Cancellations
Reservations should be canceled online as soon as plans change. 24-hour notice is preferred.
 
Guests
Property owners must be present with their guests.
 
Playing Without a Reservation
  • Between 9:00 PM and 7:00 AM.
  • Between 7:00 AM and 9:00 PM when someone forfeits a reservation. Applies when the court is unoccupied, and it is 11 minutes or later after the reservation start time.
Etiquette
  • Players must adhere to rules of good conduct on and around courts.
  • All court reservation guidelines must be followed.
  • LCOA reserves the right to suspend a player’s use of the facility for failure to demonstrate proper etiquette. This includes, but is not limited to, failure to yield a court to someone who has a reservation, failure to cancel reservations timely or frequent cancellations, and other abuses of the reservation process.
