Information on How to RESERVE the Ball Machine (available after you complete the class)

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Reserving the Ball Machine does not guarantee that a court will be available at that time.  Please recall that Camano courts are public courts and cannot be reserved.  It is recommended you check Playtime scheduler and set up a coinciding PlaytimeScheduler session to let other players know how 'busy' the courts may be. Please set up equipment to not interfere with players already on the court and/or sort out how to cooperate with other players.
