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.

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.

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
The pickleball courts are on Tennis Court #5 but neither show up on the reservation system so they don't seem reserve-able

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

Had fun playing today, thanks everyone! Looks like the snow isn’t coming tomorrow till after 12:00 so I say let’s play in the morning - 8:30 and after? No one else has the courts reserved so we should have plenty of room.

All 4 courts at south are dry and and we have 4 courts reserved for Sunday morning open play from 8:30 to 10 and 2 courts reserved from from 10 to 11. Carl

We have reserved all 4 courts for open play Saturday from 9 AM till 11:30 at South boulder . Some people may start play at 8:00 or 8:30 , but the reservation starts at 9. shouldn't be a problem to start early . Carl

Hey all--hope you are well. I have appreciated pickleball and this nice community during this hard week in Boulder.

I would like to buy some of those outdoor harder more bouncy yellow balls. Can anyone tell me the brand name? Is it the Franklin X-40? Thanks for any info! Jen

all of the courts at South Boulder where clear yesterday afternoon , hope we can get in some games this morning before more rain and snow that is in the forecast , I'm going over at 9:30 , hope to see some of you there. Also Min has 4 courts reserved at 1 PM today and she said that 2 of the courts are for open play . Carl

I'm just making sure everyone is getting the message that the courts are cleared and are playable for tomorrow and some of us are starting play 9:30. Carl

Courts at South are still snow covered and I think one more day of melting would make it possible to shovel and sweep on Friday at 10 AM , anyone interested in shoveling lets meet at 10 Friday and maybe be able to play at noon or shortly after. Saturday should be a good day and I reserved tennis court 4 , 9:30 to 11 , someone could reserve 11 to noon is still open. Court 3 is reserved from 10 to 11;30 , not sure who made that reservation for Saturday .
