Spring is here, the pollen is just about gone, and the days are getting longer.  The tennis courts are busier than ever with tennis and pickleball matches going on daily.  The following are a few friendly reminders.

  • In order to reserve courts, you need to have an account at lochmere.org and be signed in. Complete instructions on how to reserve a court are on the Court Scheduler page.
  • When you are reserving courts at Highlands, please indicate whether you are reserving them to play tennis or pickleball.
  • If you reserve courts at either location, if something comes up and you need to cancel, please do so. If you need to cancel the day of your reservation, please contact Pam Gilbert (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or Gail Lewis (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and either of them can cancel your reservation.
  • Pickleball players, if you change the height of the nets when you are playing, please return the net to their original height when you are finished playing.  

Repairs to the Lochwood tennis fencing is scheduled to begin on May 24.  This work may take three days to complete.  We hope there will be as little disruption to tennis play as possible.

  • The tennis staff is available to teach private lessons to residents and non-residents. Lessons to groups of four are also available.
  • Courts are available to all residents for tennis and pickle ball play. The Family-only restriction has been lifted.

Anyone using the facilities is reminded of the following:

  • For your health and the health and safety of the Lochmere community and the staff, please exercise social responsibility while on premises. Neither the HOA nor its’ management company can be held responsible for preventing the spread of germs throughout the facility including related to COVID-19.
  • The facilities are open to members to use at their own risk and users are solely responsible for wiping down surfaces, social distancing within the facility as publicly recommended or required, and using personal protective equipment (gloves, masks, etc.). at their own discretion and personal comfort level.
