REVIEW OF PADDLE STACKING 
FROM SEPT. 2018 NEWSLETTER

A process (called paddle stacking) for rotating players onto courts is used when needed.  Stack four (4) paddles together outside of court 11.  When a game is finished, the first group of 4 paddles will rotate onto open court; the next group of 4 takes the next open court when the game is finished.  Players coming off the courts will stack their paddles at the end.  First is furthest to the left, end is further to the right when looking at the paddles.  When members are waiting, players must exit court at end of game.
