Hi All,

Today (Monday Sep., 27) there was a little confusion and misunderstanding during the RH Residents - Good (3.0-3.75) - Meet-up scheduled for 6:00-7:30 PM at KCP.

The registered attendees were under the impression that they have the exclusive usage rights of court 1 for the duration of their meet-up. I on the other hand, was under the impression that currently exclusive usage of court 1 is only on Thursday afternoons (I believe starting at 6pm) as per signage on the court.

Could someone (Mike Bowcott?) please clarify?

Thanks,
Shahram

Ladder league (matches and scores):
I’m so excited to see many of you are interested in our ladder league and playing matches. Happy to report that you can now propose matches using the website. Just go to: Menu—-leagues—-Doubles 2.5 to 2.75 Pickleball Ladder—-Proposal
Here you can propose a match. You can choose the court and the time, and propose a match. You can play anytime of the day at Town Park (or anywhere else) if you have 4 players.
Once you are done with your match, choose one of the players to submit the score. Go to : Menu—-leagues—-Doubles 2.5 to 2.75 Pickleball Ladder— and look for “Submit scores”. You’ll have 24 hours to put your score in. We only need one person to submit the score.

Trial ladder league for beginner plus to address the rating issues: (2.50 to 2.75)
As you know, we’d like introduce the leagues and ladders for each skill level group to address our skill rating issue. We decided to start with a trial league and test the idea ? We are going to start with the beginner plus group (2.50 to 2.75).

You need to register to be able to play in the league and submit your score:

https://www.globalpickleball.network/network/ladder-league/registerPage/3499_2607-doubles-2-5-to-2-75-pickleball-ladder

Here is how it works: you will play series of matches and submit your scores; the website will calculate your playing level based on your wins and losses, as well as the number of games you play. The calculation will happen every night and your score can go up or down.

Matches: Given the limited courts and limited time slots, the admins cannot organize matches. Instead, we are going to use the meet ups for this purpose. Once you go to a meet up, ask your opponents if they agree to play a match. If they agree, then you have a match and you can submit your score.

You can also invite the members to play with you at a court of your choice and submit your score. So if you live in, say Maple, and there is a court near by, invite your friends for a match and then submit your score.

Score: Anything goes. Depending on court availability, you can decide the winning score; for example, you could do one game to 11 (or 7) win by 2 or one game first to 11 (or 7), or best 2/3 games to 11 points and win by 2. So anything goes!

Submitting the score: The winning team must enter the score within 24 hours, or it is a win by default for the losing team. You just need to go to on the website; choose our trial league; and submit score.

BYOB= bring your own balls

We appreciate your feedback in order to figure out what needs improvement. We also appreciate your patience and understanding as we figure this out ?

We have added additional training sessions for beginners, beginner plus, and Good on Wednesdays.
So, for now, Mike will hold training sessions on both Mondays and Wednesdays.
Training sessions for beginner plus and Good groups will focus on Pickleball strategies.
Please register only to the event that is created for your level.
