​​​​​​​TAY SHORES PUBLIC SCHOOL
125 Jephson St., Victoria Harbour, ON, L0K2A0


There are 2 indoor courts at the school.

The gym floor is some kind of rubberized material and is gentle on the knees.
Great lighting.
Good run out space behind each court.
Gym is divided by a curtain, which hangs an inch above the floor.
They are the two best indoor courts in the Tay Township area and beyond.



DAYS TO PLAY AT TAY:


Mondays - BEGINNER and WOMEN's NIGHT:
Playing from 6:00 to 9:30 PM.
This night is for beginners playing on one court.
Women are playing on the other court.


Tuesdays - MEN's NIGHT:
Competitive players: 6:00 to 7:45 PM
Recreational players: 7:45 to 9:30 PM


Wednesdays - MIXED NIGHT:
Competitive players: 6:00 to 9:30 PM


Thursdays - MIXED NIGHT:
Recreational players: 6:00 to 9:30 PM


We welcome both men and women on Wednesday and Thursday nights.

Please choose, which MIXED night you like to play and refrain from showing up on both nights.
This would ease long wait times for a free court on each night.

The executive of the club does not want to get into the business of telling people where they can and can’t play.
You can self select which night you wish to play, but please try to be respectful of the concept that more advanced/competitive players should have the opportunity to play with similarly skilled players, same goes for recreational players.

On the other hand, advanced and more competitive players should respect the fact that the club as a whole benefits when more skilled players also play with people who might not be at their level yet as it helps all players develop their skills.

Playing with specific people


If you want to play with a specific group of people, you can group your paddles together and play together when a court becomes available. But if you want to play with a specific foursome, you can’t put your paddles in the rack to line up to play, until all four players are available to line up.  


In other words, you can’t “hold a spot” for someone until they are off the court and ready to play, and you can’t jump the queue to play as a foursome. 
In practice this means that players who wish to put together a specific foursome to play with will have to wait a little longer to play if the courts are busy.
