Always stretch prior to play
Always warm up with a few minutes of dinking drills, drop-shot drills, serving drills.
DON’T BACK UP BY BACK PEDALING. During lessons, you will learn the proper way to turn and move to reach balls hit over your head and behind you (lobs).
COURT SCHEDULE DEFINITIONS
Next Up – Competitive and Casual
Next Up play is on the schedule several days a week. During those times, Courts 1, 2, and 3 are designated as competitive games, and Courts 4, 5, and 6 are designated as casual or noncompetitive.
These are fun times that allow players to try their game with players of higher ratings if they choose or to play noncompetitively with players of any level.
Players may schedule court time when the schedule says “Open”. There is a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board near the courts that should be used during busy times. First come, first served.
Couples’ Social Play
Couples that reside in the same motorhome play with each other during this time (no substitutions!). They often bring snacks and drinks and enjoy social (noncompetitive) play.
This time is reserved for men and/or women that want to practice together. They may be practicing for a tournament, so this allows them to stay together and play, rather than splitting up after winning a game.
This time is set aside for a Shootout for women only. Men may be invited to play if the women are short of players for a doubles’ match.
Drills are directed by an upper-level player and given to various skill levels to help with different shots, court strategies, ball awareness, etc.
