Tennis enthusiasts rejoice, on June 15 La Cienega Tennis Center and Roxbury Tennis Courts are slated to reopen following temporary closures due to COVID-19.
In reopening, the City will follow Los Angeles County safety protocols, including limited court use and reduced operating hours. To ensure that the guidelines are effectively followed, the City will initially launch the reopening as a two-week pilot program with established rules to ensure all safety protocols are maintained. The City will then return to regular operating hours, while continuing to follow safety protocols.
Guidelines in place allow single-play only and require reservations, which must be made 24 hours in advance. Both facilities will begin accepting reservations on June 13 and there will be no drop-in play or same- day reservations.
Face coverings are required upon check-in and while walking through the facility to the designated court. While face coverings are not required during play, a face covering must be worn at all other times. Each player must have their own tennis balls, initialed and handled only by them and a glove must be worn on the non-racket held hand.
“This decision was made after L.A. County permitted the gradual re-opening of recreational opportunities with safety guidelines in place,” Beverly Hills publicist Dana Beesen said.
