Tennis and pickleball courts in Berkeley reopened Friday with social distancing protocols that allow people from different households to play singles games.

Those using the courts must follow COVID-19 safety guidelines, which include staying 6 feet apart at all times, having their own equipment and having at most three balls on the court, according to a press release from the city of Berkeley. Masks are not required while playing but must be worn when not actively playing if others are present.

Other sports with close contact and shared equipment such as volleyball and basketball remain prohibited among people who don’t live together.
