About the Event

Open Play Rotation Format

To Begin

Place your paddle in a single line, from left to right, along the fence of your court. The paddles will signify who is next in line to play. The first 4 people/paddles in line go on the court.  All other people/paddles remain in line, right to left, to wait their turn.

Each court plays one game to 11, to win by 1.  The winners stay on the court and split while losers come off and put their paddles back in line. After two personal wins on the court a player goes off and adds their paddle to the end of the line. As soon as players leave the court the next people/paddles go in for their game(s).  

When courts are busy and we have a lot of players waiting, we will play to 9, so that the courts can turn over faster.

*Side Note: IF there is a court available, one court may be designated as the “competitive court” and can be used for twosomes playing/staying together. This will be dependent on court availability.


The spirit of Open Play is that everyone gets to play with different players in a recreational and fun setting. The objective is to create an atmosphere in which players of many varied skill levels, ages, and physical fitness levels can enjoy playing together.  There is no rearranging of paddles so that people stick together.  If a “competitive court” is used, those players will use their paddle line-up and monitor their own court.
