BELLINGHAM PARK COURT GUIDELINES

  • Please be considerate.  Once others are waiting for a court, play is limited to 1-hour max. 
  • When waiting for a Cornwall dedicated court, use the Paddle Rack to specify waiting order.
  • Minimize passage through occupied courts.  Check that it is okay to pass AND keep distance from others.
  • Players may bring a net to set up on multi-use courts.
  • Check the BPC Website for programs to join.
  • All relevant local and state guidelines apply.
