(They only have equal rights when they play with a senior or another league-playing junior). Secondly, if Juniors are playing with two Senior members (Seniors need to be playing with them) on court after 6, they are allowed play for the allotted hour and must at all times be considerate of other Senior members playing on adjacent courts. Court Etiquette: Please remember not to walk through courts 1 and 2 to access back courts when games are in progress.

Access to courts during league matches:

Front Courts (1-3): During league matches it is permissible for non-league players to use either courts 1 or 3 (once league match is over) if league match is still in play on the other court (i.e. if court 1 is in use and court 2 and 3 are vacant then court 3 can be used for non-league game).
It is not permissible to use either of these courts if play is continuing on court 2, nor is it permissible to use court 2 if play is continuing on either of the adjacent courts.

Back Courts (4-6): It is permissible to use courts 4, 5 and 6 during a league competition once the league players have vacated any of these courts. Please remember when using these courts to be conscious and respectful of the league players on the adjacent court.

“Seniors have preference on all courts” means Seniors may ask Juniors to vacate courts immediately.
