Tennis court reservation system
The reservation system is for select courts at Weed Beach and Cherry Lawn Park. Requests will be accepted from Darien individuals and not-for-profit groups to reserve courts in blocks of time for play. Daily reservations are no longer accepted, however, courts not reserved by block request will be available to residents on a first-come, first-serve basis free of charge. Block requests will be accepted at the Parks and Recreation office through March 24. Requests will be drawn via lottery system in which each request is classified according to size.
Fees for block court time are payable in advance upon approval of the permit requests. Request forms and regulations are available at the Parks and Recreation office or online.
