Play Types

Open Play

Open play is the term used in pickleball to designate playing times that are open for players of all skill levels and years of experience to mix together to have fun playing pickleball.

 

Format Play

Court #1 is Beginner/Social/Recreational Players. 

 

Court #2 is for Intermediate Players. 

 

Court #3 is for Advanced Players. 

 

Court #4 is for Challenge Court (Intermediate/Advanced Players)

 

You are permitted to play up one court, if you think you can compete at that level. 

If 4 players are waiting for a court, we will use a 4 on 4 off rotation; 3 players waiting - 3 on 3 off; 2 players waiting - 2 on 2 off; 1 player waiting – 1 on 1 off.  When there are 1 or 2 players waiting to play, the winning team stays and splits or they may play together, if the next two players agree.

 

With 4-3-2 players waiting on any one court, games are to 11 points, win by 1.

If more than 4 players are waiting on any one court, games will be to 9 points, win by 1.

The idea is to keep the players moving on and off the courts (a good rotation) and provide fair playing opportunities for everyone.

                                                                                        

*Players electing to play on a challenge court should understand that all players on this court are expecting a challenging game.

 

Round-Robin

A “Round Robin” is a structured form of play organized by skill levels. In the time allocated to each Round Robin session you will play games, each with a different partner and against a different pair of opponents.

 

Ladder Play

You begin play in a group with your similar skill level.  Based on a player’s performance, the player moves up or down in position on the pickleball ladder.  You play 1 round of 3 games with each player on your court.  The player with the most points moves up to the next level group and the player with the least points moves down to the next lower level group.  The two players who scored neither the most nor least points, remain in that group for the next round of play.  It is lots of fun and very competitive for all skill levels.

Pickleball Etiquette

  • IF THERE IS A DISAGREEMENT WHETHER THE BALL WAS CLEARLY IN OR OUT, PLAY THE POINT OVER

 

  • IF THE OPPONENT CLAIMS THERE WAS A MAJOR DISTRACTION WHILE HITTING A SHOT (SUCH AS A BALL BOUNCING ONTO THE COURT), DON’T HESITATE TO REPLAY THE POINT.

 

  • IF A BALL FROM YOUR COURT GOES OUT OF BOUNDS ON ANOTHER COURT, CALL “BALL OR LET” ONLY IF IT GOES ONTO THEIR COURT.  IF IT STAYS OUTSIDE OF THE COURT AND NOT A SAFETY CONCERN WAIT UNTILTHE POINT IS PLAYED OUT.

 

  • NEVER WALK BEHIND A COURT, OR ENTER ONE,WHILE A RALLY IS IN PROGRESS

 

  • WHEN A POINT IS OVER, RETURN THE BALL TO YOUR OPPONENT, NOT MERELY IN HIS/HER DIRECTION

 

  • VERBAL OUTBURSTS ARE DISTRACTING TO YOUR OPPONENT AND TO PLAYERS ON OTHER COURTS

 

  • THROWING EQUIPMENT IN ANGER IS UNSPORTSMANLIKE AND DANGEROUS. CONTROL YOUR TEMPER ON THE COURTS AT ALL TIMES

 

  • GIVE YOUR OPPONENT TIME TO GET INTO POSITION BEFORE YOU SERVE

 

  • IT IS THE SERVER’S RESPONSIBILITY TO CLEARLY ANNOUNCE THE SCORE BEFORE YOU SERVE

 

  • KNOW THE RULES OF THE GAME AND OBSERVE THEM
