    I like your court policy as you get to play back to back games before having to sit down. In my club, we get off after the end of one game and have to wait for the next available court.

    Have to make it a point to get down there one of these days. Do you guys play throughout the summer too?

    Yes, the court policy works out great, especially when there're a
    lot of people. We though of going to some kind of time system
    except it was too hard to implement.

    We open all year round and close only for the major US holidays,
    check the web site or subscribe to the email. Come visit us when
    you have a chance.

    I'd played at a club in Toronto last summer where they use a time system. Play of 15 minutes and regardless of where you are at, everyone gets off and the next group comes on.

    The reason that they went to the time system was that the three courts are located in the basement of a church and basically the walls are about 6 inches away from the lines. Since there isn't any room for folks to get around to the courts, the 15 minutes was deemed to be the best approach.

    Will sign up for the newsletter and hopefully one of these days.

    Cheers,
    Peter.
