Styles of play

Open play (drop-in community play)

Court schedules identified as 'open play' provide drop-in participation, where players are cycled into games allowing for different partners and different opponents each game. This type of play welcomes single players or couples, since players are mixed after each game.

Players must provide their own equipment to play. Upon arrival to the courts, place your paddle at the end of the line. When a game is finished, all four players come off the court and the next four  players waiting in line begin play on the vacated court. The players that just came off the court place their paddles at the end of the line, to wait their next turn. 

This cycle continues through the scheduled open play hours.

Dedicated play (individual play)

Court schedules identified as 'dedicated play' are first come first served, allowing for single person practice, singles play (two people playing), or a dedicated group only playing amongst themselves. Players must provide their own equipment. Courts should be released after one hour of use, if players are waiting. 

The City of Maple Grove has priority use of these courts and may program them for sponsored events.


Use for profit is prohibited.  This includes private and group lessons for profit.
