How do you subscribe to an iCalendar feed?

When viewing the schedule for a day, this iCal button will be shown for each court. 

Option 1: click the  iCal button.  This is easy, but it may not work.  Outlook (or other desktop calendaring programs installed on your computer) may be set up to automatically launch and add that calendar. 

Option 2 (if option 1 doesn't work): add the feed manually.  Most calendar tools (e.g. Outlook, Google calendar etc) provide a way to do this
