The tennis and pickleball courts at the Cove are for the private use of Lot A owners and their accompanied guests only. The following guidelines have been approved by the Board of Trustees to help keep the property safe and beautiful so that EVERYONE can enjoy their time at the Cove. Please share these guidelines with your family and guests.

  • Lot A owner access to the courts requires payment of the annual maintenance fee. Access code to the courts is available from the Cove Office.
  • Court reservations are managed online through For access to CourtReserve, register with the
    Cove Office where you will be assigned a household registration number. Use this platform to reserve up to two hours per household per week.
  • Court time is prioritized for tennis on the west court and for pickleball on the east court. The east court has been re-lined for two pickleball courts separated by the tennis net. Semi-permanent pickle ball nets have been obtained through user donations.
  • Registered household may reserve up to two (2) hours of court time per week using an on-line reservation system. The reservation schedule must be accessed on-line.
  • If a court has not been reserved, it is open to first come first served for either sport. If players arrive and their prioritized court is being used by the other sport (for example pickleball is being played on the west court and tennis players arrive to use the court), the players on the court have 20 minutes to vacate the court.
  • When other players of the prioritized court are waiting for an unreserved court, doubles play is to yield the court within 45 minutes and singles play is to yield within 30 minutes.
  • Adults over 18 have priority after 6 pm on weekdays.
  • Wear only appropriate tennis shoes on the courts.
  • Skateboards, roller blades, scooters and bicycles are not permitted on the courts.
  • Pets are not allowed on the courts.
  • Notify NP police immediately if you see trespassers or witness vandalism. Also report incidents to the Cove Office (206-242-3778)
  • Commercial use of Lot A property requires Board approval.

Thank you for your help in making sure your Cove property is a safe and fun place for everyone to enjoy!

Approved by Board of Trustees motion, April 6, 2021.
Revised May 4, 2021 to show adoption of the trial parameters.
Revised September 14, 2021 to show adoption of on-line reservations.

Since 2015 the Cove board has annually approved for the Crosscourt Tennis Academy to hold a six-week summer tennis camp where Lot A participants have priority for signing up and receive a discounted fee. We thank Ryan Fike of Crosscourt Tennis for getting this program developed and growing over the past seven years. Ryan has informed that he will not be available to host a 2022 camp.

We are pleased to announce that Steve Walters (Tennis World Academy), a lifetime Normandy Park resident and USPTA/PTR tennis professional, has been board approved to host the summer tennis camp this year. The camp will run from June 27 thru August 11, 2022 (no camp during week of July 11).

Registration is now open with lot A priority ending May 29th for the summer camp. To register for the summer camp, complete this schedule/registration form. The additional fee charged to non-lot A participants is refunded to the NPCC Tennis/Pickleball committee budget.
