CHALLENGE COURT

The purpose of the challenge court is to give more players an opportunity to play with limited court time. This will be a first-come-first-served basis. The first two teams will play each other. Teams can then sign up for the next opportunity to play the winner of the previous match. Once a team wins 2
consecutive games they will then relinquish the court to the next team on the list to play Teams must remain nearby until the end of the game to keep their challenge.

Tuesday - Thursdays: 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM
Teams should challenge players who are at a similar skill level.
