*Fees will apply for all indoor courts listed below other than Markin Racquet Center - call for availability and reservations at the YMCA of Greater Kalamazoo locations.


• Stowe Stadium Practice Courts

Practice times will be scheduled for the Stowe Stadium courts beginning at Noon on Wednesday, August 1. Times are as follows: Wednesday, August 1 from Noon - 6:00pm and Thursday, August 2 from 8am-6pm. Practice courts must be reserved in person to allow all participants an equal opportunity at reserving court time – no telephone reservations will be taken. Reservations may be made at the Stowe Stadium Tower on a first come - first served basis. One player alone may not reserve a court; both players who wish to practice together must sign in together. Practice time blocks are for one hour per day. If vacant courts are available they will be assigned on a standby basis, first come - first served. Coaches may hit with a player, but will be asked to share a court if needed. In case of rain, Stowe Stadium reservations are cancelled.
• Markin Indoor Warm-Up Courts
 
During the tournament, the indoor courts at Markin Racquet Center are used as warm-up for players with scheduled matches. The courts will be monitored Friday morning August 3 through noon Wednesday, August 8. If there are available courts, they will be assigned on a first come – first served basis. Players with scheduled matches will be given priority.
 
The courts will be open from 8:00 am until 9:00 pm. Courts will be monitored until 5:00 pm. After that, players are expected to share.
 
Markin Indoor Warm-Up Court rules are as follows:
• Walk in and sign in - no advance sign-up for court time. We will assign up to four players per court.
• Triage in case all courts are full:
- Players with the most immediate matches get priority
- Players who have been on the court longest will be bumped first
• General rules:
- Players will have at least a half hour to warm up before a match
- Players may play until they are bumped. It is highly unlikely that anyone will wait more that a half hour;
  generally they will be able to get right on court
 
The YMCAs in Kalamazoo and Portage are available for use by players on a stand-by basis with tournament ID. (Outdoor courts at no charge, indoor courts may be reserved for a fee.) Parents may use the YMCA health club facilities at no charge with tournament ID.

• Water and Ice

For your information, water is available on all courts at both tournament locations, bring your own water cooler and ice if you want it. If you'll be using the local practice courts, bring your own cooler with water, as most don't have fountains.
