Reserve Pickleball Courts and Equipment for Your Next Game

Drayson Center tennis/pickleball courts are available for members to reserve in advance by clicking reservations. Members can reserve a court for use any time during operating hours.

A variety of sports and recreational equipment is available for members to check out and use on the Drayson Center premises. These include paddles, balls, nets, and much more! Visit the Intramurals Office window on your way to the courts.

Reserving Courts and Equipment

Reservations can be made by clicking here or calling 909-558-4975 and selecting “court reservation” from the phone menu.

All reservations are on a first-come, first-served basis and held for 15 minutes after the scheduled start time.

If a court is not in use by 15 minutes after the hour, the reservation no longer stands and the court becomes available for anyone to use.

The Drayson Center tennis pro has priority for the tennis Practice Court and Court 1. However, “Open Play” is permitted on these courts when not in use. Courts 2 and 3 are exclusively for pickleball and are available for Open Play when not being used for organized events.

Reservations Policy

We allow each member to reserve one court per phone call, per day; all reservations are made on the hour. Tennis/pickelball courts can be reserved for two hours per person, per day.

Members may reserve the courts as early as 6:00 a.m. the day before the desired reservation day—no sooner. For Sunday reservations, members may reserve a court as early as 6:00 a.m. the previous Friday morning.

We ask that you observe and respect the rules at all times. Please do not reserve courts for other members.

For Information

Open Play

Generally, “Open Play” means three things:

  • Court 1 to 3 are reserved for pickleball.

  • Open Play is generally unhosted.

  • The “Etiquettes of Play” apply (see etiquettes below).

Days and Times for Club Play

  • Monday–Thursday evenings, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.

  • Sunday mornings, from 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. The facility opens Sundays at 5:30 a.m.

  • The only exception is when intramural leagues are scheduled on Court 2.

Etiquette of Play

  • Please introduce yourselves prior to play and tap paddles after play.

  • Winning teams play two games. When multiple players are waiting, it is four off and four on after one game.

  • Please use paddle holders to hold your place in line for the next game.

  • The "train-side" (north) serves first. If you don’t know which is the train-side, just wait a few minutes and you’ll figure it out.

  • Please call out scores before serving and call lines confidently. Spectators should not call lines. If a player cannot call a ball “out” definitively, or teammates make conflicting calls, the ball is “in.”

  • Do not walk across the back of any court during live play. If your ball rolls onto another court, the new rule is to allow those players to call “ball on” and stop play—unless you feel there is imminent danger for them. Then, you can call “ball on,” but please do not run onto their court to retrieve your ball; ask for their assistance.

  • Profanity is prohibited. Violators may be asked to leave.

  • Loma Linda University is a non-smoking campus. No smoking or vaping.

  • Alcohol is strictly prohibited.
