Hello everyone! Just a reminder that tomorrow morning is Open Play from 9am-11am. Please remember that Open Play will be a little different for this season, starting tomorrow! Courts will be designated by level (Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced). There will also be a Challenge court.
COVID-19: Please be mindful that the Pandemic is still a serious problem. Please follow our procedures to ensure everyone stays safe: click here for the Policies and Procedures for Pickleball.
Remember that there is a court etiquette to follow for each court during Open Play to ensure everyone gets an opportunity to play:
If 4 or more players are waiting, and play on a court ends, all players on that court are replaced by the first 4 players waiting.
If 1 or 2 players are waiting to play, and play on a court ends, the winners on that court split and stay and the losers are replaced by the waiting players, with these exceptions:
- (1) if the winners have played two consecutive games on the court, then the losers stay on the court, unless the losers have also played two consecutive games on the court;
- (2) the waiting players can elect to challenge the winners (unless they’ve played 2 games on the court);
- (3) if 3 players are waiting, one of the two winners comes off the court.
Anyone of any level can come challenge the winning team on this court. The winning team remains on the court. If they win 3 games, the winners have to come off the court, and 4 new players come on. If 4 players are not available to come one the court, the winners may stay. If 3 players are waiting, one of the winners stays on the court.
I will be there all morning tomorrow to ensure everything is as smooth as possible!
I hope to see you all out there for some great Pickleball!
