If you are NEW to how the Trough System at MVP works, below is a brief overview:
- The TROUGH system is used when the courts at MVP are full and there are players waiting for an open court. Paddles are stacked (4 for doubles, 2 for singles) in the trough from left to right (see pic below); the paddles to the left go to the next open court and other paddles move to the left.
- Games are played 1-11, win by 2 and then leave the court so the next group up can take the open court.
- When you finish your game and leave the court, call out “COURT OPEN” and the group to the left in the Trough will go to the open court.
- Let’s all be polite to one another and fair in our use and sharing of courts during the busy times of day at MVP.
