We normally use the Santa Rosa System for allocating playing time during open play sessions. This system is not being used at this phase of the pandemic as we are limiting the amount of times participants switch to new opponents. Details on the system can be found under the “Open Play/Challenge Board” tab on this website, or also at: http://www.hardbat.com/SRsystem.html

Four tables are available for each open play session at East Athens Community Center, located @ 400 McKinley Dr, Athens, GA 30601. Enjoy practice with 3-star DHS D40+ balls and high-quality loaner paddles.
