Tennis

At LRD, we’ve got something for all the tennis enthusiasts in your family!

We offer group and private tennis lessons for all ages, summer tennis camps, and USTA league play.

We have four tennis courts, two of which can be lit for evening use.

Tennis Lessons

The LRD is looking forward to an exciting season out on the tennis courts. Tony Simon is available for group and private lessons. Coach Simon brings over 35 years of professional teaching and coaching experience ranging from beginners to ranked players. He has an enthusiastic style of teaching that inspires his students.

Tony works on our Junior Program offering Group Sessions to suit all abilities as well as running our youth Summer Tennis Camp. Tony also offers private lessons to both adults and children.

In addition to Tony Simon, Bryan Richter will be joining the LRD as a tennis instructor. Bryan brings his own high-performance tennis program, “Pure Pace Tennis Academy” to the courts, as well as offering lessons and clinics to the Ladera community.

Currently, Bryan is renting 1-2 courts from the LRD for his program, depending on the time of the day. THERE IS ALWAYS AT LEAST ONE IF NOT TWO COURTS AVAILABLE FOR LRD MEMBERSHIP USE. If you come to the courts looking for space, and the courts are full with what appears to be clinics or lessons, please do not hesitate to speak with Bryan or Coach Simon as to availability of a court. Bryan is still working out his availability for lessons and as soon as we have that information we will provide you his contact info.

Tennis Court Rules

Tennis courts are to be used by members and their guests only. ‘Family’ members may bring up to 3 guests to use the courts. ‘Couples’ members may bring up to two guests and ‘Individal’ members may bring one free guest. At least one member must be present with the guests at all times on the courts. Guest fees apply for any guests over the allotted number. An individual may be a guest at the LRD for a maximum of three times per month. Additional visits are subject to the daily use fee. The fee for additional guests for members is $10 per day. Ladera residents who are not members may use the courts for a fee of $10 per day. The fee for non-resident non-members is $15 per day. Repeat guests are encouraged to join the LRD. Please note: Family members residing in the same household do not count as free guests.

Time Limits

Please sign your name on the chalkboard located above the water fountain across from Court 3. Please post your starting time before beginning play.

Singles Play – 1 hour

Doubles Play – 1-1/2 hours

Time limits apply when all four courts are filled. Courts do not have to be relinquished when there are available courts.

If the courts are filled when you arrive, place your racket in the next available space in the racket caddy. The first player waiting takes the first available court. All players must be present to claim a court.

Court Protection

Please wear only non-marring tennis shoes.

No skateboards or wheeled vehicles of any kind are allowed.

Dogs are not allowed on the courts at any time.

Two of the courts are washed every other week to preserve the surface. Two courts will always be available for play. Check the sign by the courts for closure times.

Court Lights

Access to court lights is limited to pass-holders with a key. Keys may be obtained from the manager for an annual fee of $25. Court lighting is set to go off at 10:30PM. Please switch off the lights when play is completed. A full clockwise turn of the switch sets the lights for one hour. Adults (18 and older) have priority on Court 4 (near Laderaland) after dark.

PLEASE NOTE: We will be making periodic membership checks at the courts. Please ensure that at least one person on the court is an LRD member or guest fees will apply. We reserve the right to ask people to leave if rules are not being followed.

Fees for Ladera Residents are $10 per person per day. Fees for Non-Ladera Residents are $15 per person per day.

All lessons, league play, and tournaments must be cleared with the Manager. Only LRD-appointed instructors may use the courts to teach lessons.

USTA Tennis

There are currently no USTA teams active at the LRD. If you would like to start and captain a team, please contact the managers.
