Courts can only be reserved by UREC members and within 24 hours of use.

Racquetball court reservations are for a one hour block. Please note you may not make back-to-back court reservations, which entails playing for consecutive hours on the same or different court. If after your reservation is completed and a court is open, you may only play on a drop-in basis.

Tennis courts may be reserved for a two hour time block.

If the holder of the reserved court does not show up after 15 minutes into the reserved time slot, the court reservation is forfeited.

  • All non-UREC participants must check in with our control desk (staff) and must sign our waiver. The group renting the facility must assign at least one individual to assist with the process.
  • Spectators for the event are allowed to enter the facility at no charge but must check in/sign in at the control desk. They will be given a stamp or other identification to show that they are here to be a spectator for the event only. This policy pertains to any event that allows spectators and takes place in UREC facilities.
