Court Reservations

Courts available for reservation: racquetball (eight courts), tennis (nine courts), and squash (one court). Reservations for all courts must be made within 24 hours of your desired reservation time.

Court reservations are for one hour blocks. Back-to-back court reservations or multiple reservations in the same day are not allowed. This is to ensure all UREC members have the same opportunity to reserve courts.

Court reservations will be honored up until 5 minutes after reservation time. At that point in time available courts will be first-come, first-served.

Areas are available during facility operating hours, but not during scheduled UREC Programs. Areas will be reserved during peak user times (3:00 – 9:00 p.m., Monday – Friday) on a limited basis. Use of any UREC facility is subject to a rental fee. Eligibility of use is based on categories as set by UREC Administration. The categories are established to meet University Recreation’s primary mission – the students. Categories and priority of use are as follows:

  • Tier 1 – Recognized Student Organizations
  • Tier 2 – Recognized University Departments to include Academic Units
  • Tier 3 – Sponsored Off Campus Groups
Sponsored Off-Campus Groups must first be approved by LSU Finance and Administration.

Established rates are designed to ensure that those who fall into categories outside of the student population are contributing an appropriate amount to pay for the services they use without dipping into the funds contributed by the student body. Fees are reviewed annually and adjusted accordingly.

Rates are per hour unless otherwise noted.

Please contact UREC Rentals for an estimate for your group.
