Court Priorities

The SRWC was created to offer “something for everyone” with no emphasis on age, gender, or ability.

  • The priority list for each facility space denotes what activities are available and what facility has priorities that may “bump" other activities from each space.
  • Any group who wishes to bump another activity during a priority time should find the facility supervisor to assist in the setup of the facility space.
  • Any open space may be utilized for any approved activity on a first come-first serve basis until a higher priority begins.
  • Due to high demand and limited space to use the multi-purpose gym and combative studio, informal recreation participants will be limited to maximum of one hour.
  • The appropriate number of players is needed to bump an activity from an area.
