Trial basis: 2 hour back-to-back bookings

We heard you! We are trying to facilitate doubles play for 2 hours in a row, so we are eliminating rule number (6) below and are now allowing 2 live bookings back-to-back. This is on a trial basis this year and may not be permanent.

AT THE COURTS:

Important things to know

Players show up 10 minutes before their scheduled time. They must check in with the court steward on duty. They have to complete online the Covid form prior to enter the court. At 5 minutes before your court time, inform the players on your court that you are there for the next session

Players will be expected to leave the court when 55 minutes has expired.

Players who are not removed may play through if desired, but not for 3 hours in a row.
Players arriving more than 10 minutes after their scheduled court time lose their court time.

Court Timing
Davisville Hours will run from 9:00 a.m. until 10:30 p.m. In May we will open at 8am. Individual courts will open for play at staggered times so that we can ensure that they are ready to receive our members and to avoid members gathering in large numbers.
Davisville Courts will change over at staggered times: court 1, 2 and 6 at the hour, court 3, 4 and 5  10 min after the hour. There will be a 5 minute “dead time” between bookings

Penalties:

Members abusing the booking system will have their booking privileges suspended.
First Infraction: Warning
Second Infraction: 2nd Warning
Third Infraction: 1 week
Fourth Infraction: 1 month
Fifth Infraction: Remainder of the Season
