Program Details

Open play is our flexible type of play that allows players to register either by themselves, with a partner, or with a group! Our open play sessions are offered based on skill level. Some sessions may cater more to beginners, some intermediate, and some advanced. When registering for Open Play on CourtReserve, please ensure the skill category you're registering for reflects your own skill level. This is to ensure everyone in the Open Play session will enjoy a level of competition that will be enjoyable!

The expectation of Open Play is for players to mix and match against new opponents and partners. Since everyone should be of similar skill level, this should offer a dynamic and unique level of play for every match played. You may pair with people you know once in a while, but you are expected to pair with new players every so often. This policy is to ensure that singles and duos that register are included in the session.

If you or your group are looking only to play within your circle, please reserve a court for private play.

Don't worry if you're first to sign up on open play, open play is guaranteed to have a minimum of 5 players for adequate mix and matching of players. If a session does not have enough players 12 hours before a session starting before 10am, or 4 hours before sessions starting after 10am, it will be cancelled and any registrants will be refunded.
