- Maximum of two people per court (singles play), players can be from different households. Doubles only possible if all 4 players are members of the same household.
- Courts must be booked and leave a time gap. Start five minutes after your time slot and leave five minutes before the end of your booking. Do not congregate after playing, leave the vicinity promptly. Please remain in your car until your time slot.
