Our Indian Ridge Pickleball participant numbers have increased dramatically so we are introducing a new (but tried and true) format to enhance the OPEN PLAY experience.
Effective this Sunday, November 10th, we are going to assign specific courts based on skill level. Here’s how it will work:
1) Court Assignments: we will offer 2 courts for Beginners or Easy Play; 3 courts for Intermediate; 2 courts for Advanced (one offering Challenge Play). These will be indicated by signs on fences. Advanced or Intermediate level players are encouraged to play their initial game (s) with those less skilled, to increase player development.
2) Rotation: when courts are full, we ask that you indicate your interest to play by hanging your paddle in the fence outside of that court (or stacking it on the adjacent table if more convenient). After each game the next four players with their paddles in line (or on bottom of the stack) will rotate in. Please read the bulletin board posted Player Rotation guidelines for when there are only 1-3 players waiting.
3) Skill Level: you will decide where you feel most comfortable playing.
This is a test! It is meant to add structure, not rules. We will try it out for 2 weeks and see whether the format works for everyone. We welcome suggestions along the way, but do ask that initially you ‘go with the flow’ to make this a good experience. Together we can find a good format for us at Indian Ridge.
Join us this Thursday on the courts for fun, games, dinner and drinks! Rod is organizing a friendly competition of US vs Canada. Three courts will be available for open play as well. So wear your Red or Blue, bring a dish to share and BYOB.
New Start time is 6 pm. Cooler temperature and less sun in our eyes.
Thank you to everyone who has already rsvp’d and offered to bring goodies. Leah Smith has generously offer to make authentic Italian Sub sandwiches for the group. So if you don’t have time to cook, simply donate to the party fund that night.
If you haven’t already done so, please rsvp below. See you on the courts!!!
Our season at Indian Ridge is coming to a close. Before we lose our Canadian friends to the north and our US friends across the nation, it’s time for a party, with some fun social play together, along side the inaugural USA vs. Canada Pickleball Challenge. So, please join us on Thursday, April 11 from 4-6 on the courts and let us know if you’d like to play in the Challenge if there’s openings (we’re limited to 3 courts, with team captains making assignments, and with regular social play on the remaining courts).
It’s a party! Bring a dish to share, your favorite beverage and yes, a spouse, significant other or friend. Email Nadine your RSVP, whether you’d like to play in the Challenge (if available), and what you plan to bring, using the link below. We will organize the games and provide tables, chairs, paper products, etc., but we need to know who’s coming. Oh, you may want to bring some dollar bills as we’ll probably be wagering on the Challenge outcome. Please RSVP ASAP.
Our season end is approaching, but there are still a few more events to participant in before friends head off to other parts:
Saturday, March 30 – We will be hosting Trilogy Country Club for an Inter-club match beginning at 10 am. We will be using all courts, so please sign up below to participate. We currently have 7 people signed up. Please note we are limited to 21 players.
