Tracking coronavirus: tennis, pickleball courts open

Tennis courts open

ANAHEIM, Calif. (May 15, 2020) — Citywide tennis courts and pickleball courts open today, marking a welcome step in Anaheim’s gradual recovery during the coronavirus crisis.

Anaheim has tennis courts at the Anaheim Tennis Center on State College Boulevard, Pearson Park downtown and at Olive Hills Park in the east. Pickleball courts are at Twila Reid Park in the west.

These are the first park amenities to open since closures began in mid-March.

Those visiting tennis and pickleball courts need to continue to practice physical distancing and wear face coverings when a six-foot distance from others cannot be maintained. Face coverings can be taken off while playing and distanced from others. It’s also a good idea to bring hand sanitizer or hand wipes with you when visiting public spaces.

Not borrowing rackets, paddles or other sports equipment from others outside your household is also a good health safety practice.

We know many residents are anxious to get back to using all park amenities, including playgrounds, dog parks, skate parks and picnic shelters. We hope to share updates on those in the near future.

We are working with the state and county on best practices for our open spaces and will only move forward with a plan that is safe, responsible with a priority on everyone’s health.

For now, here’s a summary on park and open spaces:

  • Golf courses: open
  • Hiking trails: open
  • Anaheim Coves: open
  • Tennis courts: opening May 15
  • Pickle ball courts: opening May 15
  • Walnut Canyon Reservoir trail: opening late week of May 18
  • Basketball courts, skate parks, dog parks, playgrounds, picnic areas: hopefully in the coming weeks once, we can meet best public health practices
  • Splash pads: no plans to open near term

We thank everyone for your patience as we work toward safely and thoughtfully reopening our public spaces.
