Open Play


Daily 8:30am-11:00am
Monday-Friday 4:30pm-Close

During these hours all courts are reserved for Open Play.  All players, at all levels of play, must mix-in and share courts using the posted paddle-up system. Open Play offers an instant community of folks who enjoy playing the sport. It's a great way to make new friends. You don't have to sign up, just come to the courts during any Open Play time and plan to play.

Paddle Up System
Use the paddle up system during Open Play when people are waiting. When coming off the court, the 2 winners place their paddles on the WIN rack, the 2 non-winners place their paddles on the LOSE rack. Once 4 paddles are stacked, those 4 play, alternating WIN & LOSE.
