  • Every Monday – Friday from 3:00 pm – 9:00 pm AND every Saturday & Sunday from 8:00 am – 9:00 pm the combination courts (tennis and pickleball courts 5 & 6) are unavailable to book and are for drop-in use/ casual play only.
  • Any time that the courts are not booked for exclusive use by User Groups, the courts are available to all for free drop-in/ casual use.
  • Any time outside the above specified hours, all six pickleball courts and the tennis court may be booked for exclusive use by User Groups or used for drop-in play if not already booked. Should players arrive for drop-in/ casual play during a time in which all the courts are booked, they are required to wait to play until the booking has expired. Booked/ reserved court time takes precedent over any drop-in activities in progress.
  • During the above specified drop-in hours, if all courts are in use and other casual/ drop-in players arrive to the facility, the drop-in courts must be rotated between drop-in users every 45 minutes.
    • The 45-minute rotation time starts as soon as there is a queue for court time, not from when the first group started play.

    • Newly arrived players will indicate their name and what time they arrived on the Drop-In Sign-Up board located with the communication board. They will indicate to the current players they have joined the queue and the 45-minute time limit will start. The newly arrived players must be ready for play when their time starts.

    • Should further Drop-In players arrive, they will add their name and what time they arrived in the next slot available on the Drop-In Sign-Up board.

    • So long as there is a waiting list for the Drop-In courts, players will rotate and share the courts at least every 45 minutes (for example, if Group A is playing when Group B arrives at 10:00 am to play, Group A is permitted to play until 10:45 am then will vacate for Group B. If Group C arrives while Group B is waiting, they will add their name to the Drop-In Sign-Up board and will get on the courts no later than 11:30 am after Group B gets 45 minutes of court time).

    • So long as there is a waiting list for the Drop-In courts, players/ groups are not permitted to sign-up for more than one slot in a row (no ‘stacking’ times). The courts must be shared at least every 45 minutes with every drop-in group in queue for court time.
