avoid suspension of reservation privileges. Court payment is taken in person when you
check-in at the front desk. Court payment is not processed online.


In order to receive the San Francisco City resident rate, you will need to provide valid

front desk. First-time reservations will show a non-resident fee but will be adjusted at
check-in. All reservations thereafter will automatically have the resident rate

  • Registrations can be made in person or online.

Francisco address. If you sign up prior to showing residency you may receive a credit on your Lifetime
Activities account however, there will be no credit card refunds for the difference.
