WONDERING ABOUT COURT STATUS IN THE WINTER?
During winter and in the event of snow or rain, we assess and release courts for booking on a daily basis. These checks happen at 10am, 12:30pm, and 5pm. Please log in online at those times (or a few minutes after) and check for availability. If you don't see it available online, the court is not ready for play. We aggressively shovel and dry courts in the winter, so please be patient and keep checking online for updates!
