COVID-19 Update: Tennis Courts to Re-Open Soon

​The Board of Directors values the community’s appreciation for healthy lifestyles and time spent outdoors. As California and Orange County navigate the Governor’s 4-stage “Road to Resilience,” the Board and Executive Committee are working to ensure that the community’s amenities can safely begin to re-open when government requirements permit. The SAMLARC Executive Committee, chartered to direct SAMLARC operations pertaining to COVID-19 response measures, met on May 14, 2020 to discuss potential re-opening plans for the SAMLARC amenities. The Committee provided Administrative Direction to Management to draft a re-opening plan for the SAMLARC tennis courts, with modifications to support public health guidelines and comply with government requirements.

The Tennis and Pickleball Court Re-Opening Plan is anticipated to be enacted by May 23, 2020.

  • At this time, the drafted re-opening plan includes the following measures, which may be revised as government requirements develop:

  • Courts will be available by reservation only

  • Court hours are Sunday – Saturday, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM

  • The courts may be used for singles play only

  • Limited facility access: Eight (8) tennis courts and two (2) pickleball courts in total will be available for reserved use at Altisima, Arroyo Vista, and Trabuco Mesa parks.

  • Safety measures: All activity must be aligned with federal social distancing and safety measures

  • Reservations: Court reservations may be made through the SAMLARC Life mobile app or by calling the Beach Club at (949) 858-1390

To prepare for the tennis courts’ re-opening, SAMLARC strongly encourages Members to download the SAMLARC Life mobile app. Please note that your SAMLARC membership must be verified before making a reservation through the app. In addition to facilitating tennis court reservations, the app provides information on virtual events, activities, and community news – a valuable resource for staying in tune with SAMLARC’s unique lifestyle experience.

The SAMLARC Board of Directors appreciates the flexibility and thoughtfulness of the Membership during this time. SAMLARC’s Coronavirus response measures have been successful thanks to the patience and community-mindedness of SAMLARC Members. The Board and its Executive Committee are working to minimize the impacts of COVID-19 on the community, while continuing to provide excellent services.
