Court Etiquette


1. Players are encouraged to come to scheduled play for your skill and ability level.  Experienced Beginners (can serve & keep score) are welcome at Social Play.  Intermediate and Advanced Play is competitive and aggressive and will be overwhelming for beginner players.


2. Enter and exit the court using the correct gates.  Gate A on the east end for courts 5 & 6. Gate A on the north side for courts 1 & 2.  Gate C for court 3.  Gate D on the west side court 4.


3. Avoid crossing courts when entering and exiting.


4. When your game ends – exit the court promptly.


5. When entering a gate to get to your court, do so promptly and remember to close the gate behind you.


6. Avoid chasing balls into other courts while other games are in play.


7. If you are playing and see a ball go onto your opponents' court, yell LET or BALL.  Let’s be safe on the courts!


8. Pay attention when you are waiting for which players are up next.  Notice where your paddle is in the queue and be ready to go when it is your turn.
