Individual Court Reservations

Court System Plan

Boulder Parks and Recreation (BPR) is working on a Court System Plan that will analyze and evaluate the city’s tennis and pickleball courts.

This includes the number of courts, use type for each court (shared or dedicated), capital investment, management, and programming. The plan will provide a balanced approach and identify priorities for the next ten years.

Outdoor Court Reservations

  • Reservations can be made up to seven days in advance.
  • All court rentals are final. Refunds will not be given due to adverse weather conditions or other unforeseen events.
  • Only one court reservation per person per day for a maximum time of 1.5 hours each time.
  • Reservations must be made at least one hour in advance.


  • Recreation center courts: $7.50 for 1.5 hours. (No fee if you have an annual, monthly, SilverSneakers, Renew Active or Silver & Fit pass)
  • Other city courts: $6 per hour.
