Dane County Courts Are Open!


DATE OF ORDER:Goes into effect at 8:00 a.m. on May 26, 2020


Great news!  Pickleball and Tennis courts open under modified play rules, as announced through the Dane Forward plan published by Madison & Dane County Public Health. Check with local municipalities to determine court availability.


You may not want to rush out to play immediately — consider the health risks for you and others.  The courts remaining open will be dependent upon everyone playing responsibly.


Safe-play signage is posted at the courts and available on the City of Madison COVID-19 website. The City expects these rules and guidelines could evolve over the summer.


Play is limited to singles only, or doubles for members of the same living unit or household. You may want to consider playing half-court “skinnies” if you aren’t comfortable with full court singles.  


Bring your own sanitizing kit, masks, etc.  Avoid touching common areas, e.g., gate posts, etc.


Bring your own personally identifiable ball. Always serve with your own ball, do not touch other pickleballs with your hands.


Players are asked to arrive, play, then leave. Considering the proximity of courts to parking lots, open courts may be difficult to observe. Please maintain social distancing and personal protection guidelines at all times. 


Please also reference CDC, Madison & Dane County Public Health, USAPA & USTA guidelines.


We will let you know more as soon as we know more.


Let’s all play safely!
