    Court Waiting Board

The court waiting board is so that players waiting will know what the next vacant court will be.

All players must sign-up with the time they go on the court. When courts are full players must vacate the courts, provided they have played for 45 minutes. Players must have been waiting 30 minutes before asking the players that started first to vacate.

If you do not put a tag up with your start time you will be the first to be asked to vacate the courts.



The instructions to use the Waiting Board are as follows:

Before you occupy a tennis court, write down your name and the start time on a black card and hang it on the hook which corresponds to the court number on the first row of the board.

If all courts are occupied when you arrive at the club, write down your name on a black card and place it on the next empty space on the waiting list . (second row on the board)

When your turn comes to enter the court, please write down the start time next to the name on the black card and move the card to the hook which corresponds to the court number on the first row of the board.

When finishied playing, please take your card off the hook, wipe the chalk off with the cloth provided, and place the clean card back on the shelf at the bottom of the board.

Please note, VPTC regularly scheduled programs which are listed on the online calendar take priority over non-programmed activities. A yellow card placed on a hook on the first row of the board indicates a scheduled program is in progress on that court.
