Activity Court Policies
During open recreation hours, all basketball courts at the recreational sports facilities are on the challenge court system. In the challenge court system, the losing team must vacate the court to be replaced by the challenging team. To challenge, a waiting individual must make it verbally known to the teams playing that the challenge has been issued. That person must remain courtside and ready to play when the ongoing game ends. The person challenging determines the make-up of his/her team. Efforts must be made to include other individuals not currently playing in a game; but should additional players be needed to constitute a team, the person offering the challenge may select players from the losing team. A person playing in a game may not challenge until the game in which they are playing ends.
Full-Court vs. Half-Court Games
Full-court games take priority at all times. Half-court games may be played when an open court is available, but must yield to full-court games when two 5-person teams are available to play and no other courts are open. The ongoing half-court game must be allowed to finish prior to beginning of full-court play.
Challenge Court Game Rules
- Full court games are to be played to 11 baskets, win by 1 basket.
- Half court games are to be played to 15 baskets, win by 2 baskets. Teams have the option to play on an alternating ball or make-it/take-it basis.
Designated courts give priority to women and wheelchair participants. The courts are labeled on the backboard at each facility.
Volleyball and Badminton Courts
Three (3) volleyball courts are set-up at all times in ARC Gym 2. These courts can be reserved through the Campus Recreation reservation line.
Four (4) badminton courts are set-up at all times in ARC Gym 3. These courts can be reserved through the Campus Recreation reservation line.
Volleyball and badminton players have priority on these courts, unless gyms are reserved for a special event. In these situations, Campus Recreation will make all attempts to make alternative playing areas available.
