Challenge Court play is available to players on selected courts during Group reserved hours where space permits dedicating one or more courts to Challenge Court play. While Challenge Court play is intended for intermediate to advanced play, any player may elect to play on a Challenge Court, and no other player may discourage or restrict them from doing so. However, players electing to play on a Challenge Court should understand that all players on these courts are expecting a challenging game and will not be expected to "go easy’” on anyone. Players who find themselves not really competitive should try to build their skills on the Open Courts.
Challenge Court play is conducted on a first come – first served basis on any court not being utilized for Open Play or for novice training. A “challenge” means that players of generally similar skill level as the group of four currently playing individuals, give notice to play the winners of a current Challenge Court game. Notice is given by adding a challenging player's name to a White Board for the Challenge Courts.
Once a current Challenge Court game has ended, the following options are available:
The option to remain together for the next game or to split up is the choice of the winning players, provided that both players are eligible to play another game.
Players are strongly encouraged not to play exclusively on the Challenge Courts. Our more advanced players should consider themselves ambassadors of the sport, and as such, are encouraged to play some games on the Open Play courts and to use those games to mix with other players and to practice aspects of their soft game.
