Facility Use Guidelines

  • Please be off the court or field 5 minutes before the scheduled end time. Booking an hour of facility use is equivalent to 55 minutes of play. This allows our staff to take down and set up equipment for the next booking.
  • Patrons are not permitted to set up or take down equipment for safety reasons. Staff do not set up equipment outside of Recreation North play or paid bookings. We staff our facility based on the daily schedule.
  • The facilities are shared by members and user groups - be respectful and courteous as per the rules outlined in the NSC Code of Conduct.
  • Outdoor shoes are not permitted in the fieldhouse or gyms.
  • We are a user-paid facility. If you are not a member, the drop-in fee must be paid.
  • Pickleball and badminton racquets can be rented for $2.00 + applicable taxes (limited availability).
  • Every Wednesday from 7:00 am - 9:00 am the fieldhouse is closed for scheduled turf maintenance.
