Table Tennis Playing Area

Table Tennis playing Area

Reserve your table tennis court online! Our table tennis center boasts a 25, 000 square foot playing area located in Morrisville, NC.

Triangle Table Tennis has flexibility in how we arrange our 25, 000 square foot playing area, and the number of courts we set up. On any given day, depending upon scheduled activities, we may set up 20 to 40 tables and surrounding court barriers.

  1. Needs of scheduled programs and events, such as tournaments and leagues
  2. Needs of coaching staff for group and individual lessons
  3. Requests for court reservations that are secured with online payments
  4. Set-aside courts for open play and walk-in use

Open Play Policies and Logistics

Triangle Table Tennis will generally set aside at least six courts for open play, except during large scale events, such as tournaments. As a practical matter, there will often more than six open play courts available, because members are always free to use courts that are not in use or reserved for programs, events, lessons, or pre-paid reservations. Given its size and number of tables, Triangle Table Tennis will sometimes have little to no wait time for open play courts.
Triangle Table Tennis has a “first in, first up” allocation of available open play courts, to best enable fair sharing of those courts. Players making use of open play tables are asked to sign in on clipboards underneath each table, noting the time that they start play. If other members are waiting for open play courts, we ask that players relinquish their open play court to a waiting player after 60 minutes. If all open play courts are in use, waiting players may check the sign-in clipboards under the open play tables and “bump” players who have been playing longer than 60 minutes (or who failed to sign in and note their start time). Players who are “bumped” from an open play court after 60 minutes may finish an “in flight” game (but not a complete match) if they can do so within 5 minutes, and then they must relinquish that table. After taking a break of at least 15 minutes, and they then may “bump” other players who have been playing over 60 minutes, as outlined above.

Court Reservation Policies and Logistics

Members may choose to make a court reservation, if they would like to:

  • Ensure that they can start play at a specific time without waiting, or
  • Play for longer than 60 minutes without interruption, or
  • Play on a specific type of court (such as a larger court, or one with a robot).

Generally, Triangle Table Tennis will set aside 2 to 6 larger, regulation size (20’ x 40’ or larger) separately barriered tables for reservations, except during large scale events, such as tournaments, or times of heavy demand for private lessons. When available, court reservations are scheduled in half-hour increments and require pre-payment.
