Message from Durham Parks and Recreation Department: (revised July 24, 2023)
As tennis and pickleball courts are popular amenities during the summer months, we want to reach out with a few friendly reminders to ensure we’re all having fun and DPR is providing the best customer service to everyone using the courts at Bethesda Park.
DPR has designated specific days and times at Bethesda Park for tennis and pickleball. Please refer to our website for schedules and closure dates.
Groups, individuals, instructors, and leagues may reserve pickleball courts #1 and #2 and tennis court #1 for dedicated play time. Courts can be reserved online here. Court reservations are required for anyone providing coaching, training, or instructions for tennis or/and pickleball.
Athletics staff have been assigned to oversee and assist with the court schedule at Bethesda Park. Assigned times are enforced to help provide equity, consistency, and structure at these dual use courts. While using the courts for an activity outside of the designated schedule is prohibited, we ask that you please be respectful in allowing the scheduled sport priority use if asked by a community member or staff while using the courts.
We appreciate the patience of the community as we continue maintenance of our pickleball and tennis courts. Painting pickleball lines at Morreene Road tennis courts is a high priority. We will keep you updated when a timeline for this project is available.
The tennis and pickleball communities have been a great asset in helping DPR create the management plan for Bethesda Park courts. We want to make sure the assigned schedule and court management are continuing to positively serve the community. We welcome your feedback at email@example.com and will follow up in the near future with a formal feedback survey.
