  4. There is no grace period for reservations. If the individual is not present at the reserved court at the starting time, the reservation is cancelled and the court is available for general use on a ‘first-come’ basis. However, an individual with a reservation permit card or a person who has claimed a court on a ‘first-come’ basis may hold the court for five minutes while waiting for his/her playing partner. Please use common sense.

General Court and Field Policies

What kind of shoes should I wear?

Shoes that mark or damage the floor surface or court floors, such as turf shoes, bicycle cleats, black waffle type running shoes are strictly prohibited. The floors, when marked, are costly and difficult to repair. Persons who mark and/or damage the court surfaces will be charged the cost of maintenance and repair. You may wish to remind others about this problem to help protect YOUR courts. For further assistance, contact the supervisor on duty in the IMA Facility.

Be courteous!

All participants must abide by court and field rules and regulations, and use common sense and courtesy in their application. Most problems occur during the change from one reservation period to another. Please recognize that most player’s watches and facility clocks are not set at identical times. For the IMA indoor courts, all participants should refer to the clock located in the hallway adjacent to the IMA Swimming Pool. Your assistance and understanding will help to provide an enjoyable experience for everyone. Any reservation, court or field usage problem should be directed to the supervisor on duty at the Member Services Desk.
