Court Check-in

When showing up for a reservation, remember: Plan to check in at least 15 minutes prior to reservation time (to allow for parking, ID verification, payments, etc.). Patrons have a 15-minute grace period to check in. (Example: if players have a reservation at 4 pm and they show up at 4:10 pm, the reservation will still be honored. If the players show up at 4:30 pm, the reservation is lost.)

  1. All participants must present a proper ID to the Court Attendant. If Guests are playing, photo ID cards and receipt must be presented. If a Card Reader is being used at the courts, Panther ID's will be swiped there.
  2. For times not reserved prior to the courts opening, players may show up on a walk-up basis.
  3. All ID verifications and payments must be made at the Wellness & Recreation Center prior to playing approval.
  4. Patrons have a 15-minute grace period to check in, after which the court becomes "first come, first serve" (with ID verification and payment if necessary).
  5. If a person with a name different from the one given when the reservation was made shows up to play, the Court Attendant will send the player to the Wellness & Fitness Center for verification.
  6. Players must vacate the court at the top of the hour if there is a reservation or walk-up players are waiting.
