BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Beginning Sunday, May 10, the tennis courts at Lower Columbia Park in Berkeley Heights will be open, but with a few restrictions:
- Courts are for TENNIS ONLY! No pickleball or other sports are allowed yet.
- Games must be singles only – no doubles. That means one person on each side of the court at a time.
- There must be one court in between every two in use – to maintain safe social distancing between players at all times.
Please be cognizant of the fact that droplets from a person’s mouth or nose can be on a player’s hand, which can then touch the ball, which then gets touched by the other player. Be sure to follow all proper hygiene protocols – such as frequently using hand sanitizer, not touching your phase, and coughing/sneezing into your elbow, not your hand. Per normal COVID-19 protocols, one should always wear a mask if proper social distancing is not achievable.
The courts at Lower Columbia are the only tennis courts in Berkeley Heights.
“The Governor has given mayors statewide the ability to open municipal courts only for tennis singles,” said Mayor Devanney. “I am asking residents to please adhere to the strictest protocols so we can continue to open more areas of the Township.”
Thank you for your patience and please stay safe!
