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 owners become NPCC members by paying the annual maintenance fee. Members are provided with the court access code when they register to use the courts or from the Cove Office.
  • The courts are reserved using the CourtReserve application, which is available for Apple and Android phones, as well as PCs. NPCC families can contact the Cove Office for registration details.
  • NPCC households may reserve a court for up to two hours per household per week.
  • The west court is prioritized for tennis and the east court for pickleball; courts can only be reserved for their prioritized sport.
  • Both east and west courts have pickleball lines and portable pickleball nets to enable up to 4 games at once. The west court pickleball nets are to be stored in alignment with the east court tennis net post and placed in the stationary position (not resting on the wheels) to serve as ball stops when pickleball play is finished.
  • 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 must vacate the court at the end of the game or 20 minutes, whichever occurs first.
  • If the west courts are being used for drop-in pickleball (no tennis reservations have been made), it is considered open play. When a game is finished, the players must leave the court and allow players that are waiting to have the court.
  • When other players of the prioritized court are waiting for an unreserved court, players must yield the court 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.
  • Commercial use of Lot-A property requires Board approval.

Repeat violations of these rules will result in your CourtReserve access being suspended for 30 days

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, February 21, 2024.
