​​​​​​​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.

​​​​​HOW TO ENJOY PLAYING IN OUR CLUB AT TAY SHORES PUBLIC SCHOOL 



A. LESS THAN 13 PLAYERS - 1 rack for all

First game only - 4 players start a game.
2 winners stay on, split up and 2 new players will join them.
In all consecutive games,2 players who have not played twice in a row yet stay on, split up and 2 new players will join them.
In other words, each player plays 2 games in a row,
regardless of who won or lost the game.
Players who played twice in a row must exit the court and place their paddle back in rotation.
Regular games to 11 points.


 
B. 13 PLAYERS OR MORE - 1 rack for Winners and 1 rack for Non-Winners

All 4 players come off the court, 4 new players go on.
Game ends when one of the teams reaches
9 points.  No 2 points difference.




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.
