FAQ

Why is the fieldhouse only open for recreation on Saturdays?

There are a number of PERA programs and we must follow campus protocols to keep all students and our staff as safe as possible as we work to accommodate them. Campus and Commonwealth protocols necessitate the need for increased social distance, especially indoors, and we are doing our best to make sure the fieldhouse is being used to the maximum of its potential, as other spaces in the building are closed for safety reasons. For now, that means we have one day a week we can commit to recreation.

If I reserve a court, how do I reserve equipment?

No need! We’ll have staff on hand to provide you with the equipment you need for your chosen reservation.

How many people can play on any court reservation?

Two (Sorry, there will be no doubles play). That means that each tennis court holds two, each ping pong table takes two, and each pickleball net takes two. Two.

The reservation belongs to just one person. You will need to bring your competition with you (don’t expect to be provided with an opponent!). If your opponent cancels, you can show up for your reservation anyway and hope to be paired with someone by the monitor, but we can’t promise anything on that front.

Why can’t I find Rec Saturdays in R&R?

It might be because you’re looking under the Resource Type “KSC - Fitness,” where cardio machines etc. are reserved. These reservations are under “KSC - Rec.”
