Our season started on Monday, April 5th. Court reservations are available for BPC members five days in advance. We are very happy to report that we received approval to extend our playing season to a twelve (12) month schedule! Many of you played regularly this last winter but had difficulties getting a court due to crowding. We will keep our reservation system running all year to help ensure you get a court at the times you want. The winter schedule is not out yet, but on November 1, 2021, the reservation times will shift to 9am-3pm.
So, what have we changed in the playing schedule for 2021? Last year we had two days each week for drop-in play. This year that will expand to three times a week. Also, we are bringing back round robin (RR) play! This is for the 3.5 level only. They expressed a strong preference for this type of play. The other skill levels will continue to have the drop-in play format. As a reminder, for drop-in play you sign up and come out to play on any of your assigned courts. You can leave whenever you want. The RR play will need captains. For every match players are assigned to a court/partner, and everyone will need to stay for the entire session to ensure the matches can continue. There is flexibility in the schedule to modify the play format to meet each group’s needs, so this is not locked in stone. Finally, as last year, all of the non-RR/non-drop-in club court time (7:00am – 2:00pm, Mon-Sat) will be by reservation.
