New reservation system in place for pickleball courts


Use of Norwalk’s popular outdoor tennis and pickleball courts is now regulated by a new reservation system “to ensure accessibility and fairness,” according to a news release.

The reservation fee to guarantee your court is $15 per hour for residents and $25 per hour for non-residents. There’s a two-court reservation limit per transaction. Players without a reservation may still use a vacant court that hasn’t been reserved.

To reserve your court:

  • Sign in to your Active Net account (or create an account if you don’t have one) at http://scb.ai/Nvtpyt.
  • Select the “Reservations “ tab at the top left-hand side of the screen.
  • Select either “Pickleball Courts” or “Tennis Courts.”
  • See court availability.
  • Select an available location, court number and desired time slot (maximum of 2 hours per court).
  • Agree to the waiver and rules of conduct.
  • Proceed to check out.

You’ll get a permit via email showing your reservation date, time and court location.
