Coaching and Instruction

Coaches may only provide instruction to members, not to guests. Coaches must be registered with the King Lakes HOA to use the courts at any time. Unregistered coaches will be asked to leave and potentially charged with trespassing. Coaches not accompanied by a homeowner will be asked to leave and potentially charged with trespassing.

Coaches are required to register with the management company. They must contact the management company, submit a registration form acknowledging the rules and regulations and pay a $50 annual fee.

Coaches are required to provide proof of current USTA or USPTA insurance in the amount of $1,000,000.

Coaches are required to provide proof of current workman compensation insurance coverage.

Reservations and Court Availability

Court 1 is an open play court and cannot be reserved. Play is limited to 1.5 hours. If no one is waiting players are welcome to continue to use the court. While players are waiting, courts shall be relinquished on the hour or half hour, taking into account the original start time and 1.5 hour maximum usage time. For example, if you started playing at 11:00AM and no one was there at 12:30 you can keep playing. If someone shows up at 12:45 you would need to relinquish the court at 1:00PM (the nearest hour/half hour). An honesty policy is expected to be used, for example when someone shows up at 12:45 don’t act like you just started playing if you’ve already been there for a while. Remember good sportsmanship and good neighbor relations are key.

Court 2 may be reserved. Reservations can be made up to 7 days in advance. One reservation per day, per household is allowed. Reservations are limited to 1.5 hours. During peak hours (4PM-9PM Monday through Friday) no more than 2 reservations a week are permitted. Reservations take priority over players without reservations on Court 2 and the court must immediately be surrendered to a member with a reservation if play is occurring without a reservation. If there is no reservation, the open play rules on Court 1 apply.

Reservations for Court 2 may be made online at https://www.reservemycourt.com. To create an account you will need a code. You can either request it through the registration site or by contacting Graham Management at 713-334-8000 or carmenr.gm@sbcglobal.net.

Tennis Court Lighting

There is a light switch to turn the tennis court lights on if you are playing after dark. However, we ask that all residents remember to turn the light switch off if you are the last one leaving the courts to reduce any unnecessary electricity costs to the HOA.
