A network for any and all pickleball players in the greater Boulder area. Welcome!

Use this site to set up games, find players, communicate with each other. You can set up games to be either public or invite-only so it's great for organizing drop-in times as well as for scheduling times for your pod/small group.

There's a Comments section if you want to post general questions to the group, and there are ways to send emails to selected people. Comments get emailed to everyone in the network.

We're all trying it out for a while to see if it works for us. Invite other players you know to join - the larger the group gets, the more useful the network will be.

A FEW TIPS WE'VE LEARNED SO FAR

- - - Scroll Down To See The Comments Wall and Recent Posts - - -

Groups
If you prefer to play with the same group of people, you can create a group and then when you schedule a play time, only the people in your group get notified.  To create a group, click on GROUPS, then Create A Group, give your group a name, select the players and click SUBMIT.  Your group will now show up as an option when you are scheduling play time.

 

Posts/Comments
We've discovered 3 different places you can post messages and comments (can make it confusing until you figure out where you really want your post to appear).

1) There is a comment section down further on this page, good for general posts. Your Comment gets emailed to everyone in the network, so it's an easy way to quickly contact everyone.

2) You can post comments on the specific play times, and anyone registered for that play time will get notified of a post.  Click on the play time and you'll see a Play Session Chat section.  This is handy because it keeps all the messages related to one play time together.

3) You can post under an individual's name.  Click on their name and you'll see a Post Comment section.

 

Getting Notified When Someone Sets Up A Time To Play
When you add a play time to the calendar, the system sends a notification to the people you've designated - either everyone in the Boulder Area Pickleball network or your smaller group that you've created.

When the system actually sends out the notification to each person is based on their preference.  You can change the timing of these notifications in your own profile - e.g. get the notifications immediately, once per day, etc.  We suggest you start out with "immediate" so you get notified as soon as someone posts something.  After a bit you can change the frequency.

To change how often you receive notifications from the system:
Click on the bell icon in the top right of the screen
Click on Update Your Notification Settings
Choose when you want to receive notifications

 

Reserving A Court
This network organizes players and events (play times) but does not reserve a court for you. If you are setting up a time to play at a city court, you can either
1) take your chances that a court will be open or
2) reserve a court through the City's system https://apm.activecommunities.com/boulderparksrec/Reserve_Options

TIPS
Reserve the whole tennis court rather than the pickleball court and you'll get 2 courts for the price of one.
South Boulder Recreation Center Outdoors
Tennis Court #3 = Pickleball Courts #1 & 2 (east side)
Tennis Court #4 = Pickleball Courts #3 & 4 (west side)

East Boulder Community Center Outdoors
Tennis Court #5= Pickleball Courts #5a & 5b


North Boulder Recreation Center Outdoors
Tennis Court #1 = Pickleball Courts #1 & 2

Network Events
Filter
Oct 15 - Oct 21
Where is everyone playing pickleball? Use an event to organize play sessions for a group of players. Players can rsvp for an event, and the system takes care of the rest. Learn more.

If anyone wants to be on the Boulder Pickleball email list, please send me your first and last name and your email address. The list is maintained by a small committee of players that work with Boulder's Park and Rec Department to advocate for pickleball here in Boulder. We rarely send anything out, but we do let people know of changes to schedules, new courts that are available, etc. Notices will come to your email from boulderpickleball@gmail.com. Thanks! -Marti

More Drop In times are happening! The City has reserved courts at both North and South Rec Centers for drop-in pickleball - click on the calendar to see the various times and locations.

The City may schedule some time at East - if you hear that has happened, post the info here and I will add it to the calendar.

No drop-in play at South Wed and Thurs this week (10/6 and 10/7).
There is a tennis tournament happening on the outside courts all day and we will not be able to play pickleball.

Is the South Boulder pickle still happening in the mornings? I went the other day and no one was there. Is there a way to know if anyone is going to show up?

Another lost and found: Tuesday evening, I found a small folding stool left behind. I brought it back out this morning (Wednesday), but no one claimed it. I'll bring it by tomorrow morning (7ish until 8:30), and maybe Saturday as well. If it's yours, let me know and I'll get it to you.

Are people playing at South in the evenings? Should we continue to reserve the courts 6:00-8:30pm for drop-in play? Please post a comment here if you have been going and can report on how many folks are playing. We're happy to reserve the courts if you want to play in the evenings, just need to know whether to continue.

Is there drop-in at North Boulder or are there others who would like to play there one evening or early morning? I have been going to South Boulder Rec drop-in and also have a regular group I play with twice a week - but would love to try N. Boulder.

Hello! My wife and I are VERY new to pickleball but really want to learn how to play and join a league/group. I was a competitive tennis player through high school but my wife is new to racket sports...but fairly athletic. If anyone has any suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated. We are in our mid 40's if that helps. Thanks, Jacob

For anyone wondering if people are showing up for evening drop-in play at South, about 20 players were there Monday evening.

If you'd like to announce which evening you want to play (hoping your friends will see that and then show up), you can click on the time in the "event calendar" above - scroll up to see the calendar. Click on the event and then on the right side of your screen there is an "event registration" box (on phones scroll down the page to get to the registration section). Check the "yes" for Are You Coming and click Save. Now everyone who just loves to play with you will get notified that you're coming, and you didn't have to send out a slew of emails to set it all up.

We're extending our evening trial of drop-in play at South for another week, so come out if you're interested.

The starting time is now 6:30pm, hoping it's a bit cooler, and you can play up till 8:30 when the courts officially are supposed to close.

The 2 courts on the west side are reserved for drop-in play (courts 3&4).

If you have any thoughts about this evening idea, feel free to leave a comment and get the discussion started.
