What is Open Play?

Open play means that all players, of any skill level, are invited to play on the courts for a set time frame. Open play is simply a predetermined time where pickleball players show up at the courts to play. You don’t have to worry about making a reservation or finding other people to play with. All you simply need to do is show up during our scheduled "Open Play" times with a paddle in hand and be ready to play!

Open Play Dry Erase Board Procedure   

•    Write your name in the first available block, or in a block with fewer than four players.

•    When four names are listed in a block and a court becomes available, the four players who are in the next block draw a line through their names and take the court.  Do not erase the board until more space is needed.

•    Sequence of play is top to bottom, left to right for each row.

•    If you want to identify your skill level, use a green marker for Beginner, blue for Intermediate, and black for Advanced (just like skiing). 

•    Four players who wish to play together can sign up in the first available blank block.  They must wait to play until the players in the blocks before them go out onto the court, unless more empty courts are available than there are players waiting.

Etiquette

The spirit of “Open Play” is that everyone gets to play with different players in a recreational and fun setting. The objective of Open Play is to have people learn from playing with others and form friendships while doing so. Private Play is the only way you can guarantee who you play with and requires a court reservation outside of Open Play hours.
