 Court Rules and Etiquette

Diamond utilizes a court reservation system.
To learn about access/instructions go to the
Diamond A website look  under the  Tennis/Pickleball Reservations  

    In order to provide access to the Diamond "A" Recreation Center courts for the largest number of players, especially during peak demand times, we ask that all players follow these guidelines:


1. AT LEAST ONE DIAMOND "A" RECREATION ASSOCIATION MEMBER  MUST BE A PLAYER ON THE COURTS AT ALL TIMES.  Only members and their guests are allowed to use the courts.  This policy  is a requirement of our liability insurance. NO EXCEPTIONS.
 2. No single person may hold or use a court when others wish to play and no other court is available.
3. If all courts are in use, please yield the court after 1-1/2 hours of play to anyone who is waiting for a court.   You should finish your current game and wave the players waiting on.
4. If all courts are in use, new players arriving may inquire of the current players when a court will be available.   You should wait until a break in play to inquire and then remain quietly by the court until it is available.   If you leave after inquiring, you may not return and expect the court to be available.
5. If no one is waiting for a court then, of course, you are welcome to play as long as you like or until a court is once again reserved.
6. Tennis is a sport…please be a good sport and be considerate of your fellow players.
