If courts are open and no one is waiting, you can use any available court.
Once courts are full, players are required to use the rack system to determine the order of play as follows:
- Waiting players should put their paddle in the next available tube to hold their place in line; the rotation moves left to right. The “next sign should be moved down the rack as players rotate.
- Players wishing to play as a group may do so by racking together.

- When a game is finished, players must leave the court allowing the next racked players to rotate in. If players are waiting, players from the finishing court may complete the foursome.
