Tennis Court Closures


West Campus Closure

We have recently received feedback that the smell coming from West Campus Courts resurfacing projects (currently underway) is impacting instructors and participants. 
After consulting with Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S), they strongly recommend moving all activities to different locations until project completion (late May). 
Therefore, we are sorry to announce that West Campus Courts will be closed for the remainder of the resurfacing project. This includes all events, scheduled practices, and open play for both tennis and pickleball.

Taube South Closure

Taube South courts will be closed until the end of 2024 unless announced otherwise. 

We will update the community on reopening dates as we learn more on our website, social media platforms (@stanfordurec), and mobile app.
