BELLINGHAM PARK COURT GUIDELINES

All guidelines were set in collaboration between BPC & Bellingham Parks and Rec Department.

  • Once others are waiting for a court, play is limited to 1-hour max.
    Please be considerate.
    When waiting for a Cornwall dedicated court, use the blue Rotating Paddle Rack to specify waiting order
  • Minimize passage through occupied courts.
    Check that it is ok to pass AND keep distance from others.
  • Players may bring a net to set up on multi-use courts.
  • Check the information kiosk for BPC programs to join and avoid playing during those times to minimize wait times & congestion.
  • All relevant local and state guidelines apply.
