Sports Arena Rules and Regulations

Courts may be used for volleyball, basketball, badminton, pickleball, fencing and table tennis. Inappropriate/vulgar language and behavior is not permitted. Patrons may be asked to leave the facility if their behavior is deemed threatening or inappropriate. Non-marking court shoes are required at all times while on hardwood floors.

Open recreation basketball participants will have the ability to play full-court games with the understanding that badminton (and pickleball) take priority on Court 4. Upon notification that a request for badminton is posted, the existing basketball game will be permitted to end and play one more (winner game). Once the second game is finished, up to three badminton nets can be set-up and used. The priorities for Court 4 are as follows:
