TRRPL is a unique and fun pickleball league! Here's what makes us unique...and better:

1. Each game has a referee - a first for league play!
2. All games are a round robin with your teammates....you play with a different teammate each game. The opponents are doing the same so you have a lot of variety in each match.
3. CASH prizes for the winning teams!
4. We have three playing levels: Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced level. Beginner League doesn't allow slamming.
5. Each team selects their home court and teams will travel for half of the matches to their opponent's home court. No pickleball courts available? Use a tennis court. With TRRPL's proprietary temporary pickleball court, you can covert any tennis court into two temporary pickleball courts in minutes.

Whether you're looking to join a team or want to start your own team, registration is open now for leagues with play beginning January 2022.

LEAGUE DETAILS:

Below are Five Sections:

Section 1: League Format

Section 2: How to create or join a team

Section 1: League format

1. All leagues are doubles and you play with a different teammate for each game. You’ll play four games per match.

2. Games are played on a team’s home court so the Away team will travel to play. All teams must have a home court. The same court can be the home court for multiple teams. See Section 4 to learn more about how to choose a home court.

3. All games are to 15, win by 2

4. Five players are needed per team, per match. Four players from each team are playing on the two courts. The two players who sit out each game serve as a referee. The referee’s sole responsibility is to make sure there are not foot faults at the kitchen line. Referees are not responsible for keeping the score or making line calls.

5. There are five rounds per match with two games played at the same time on two courts. The match should take about 90 minutes.

6. Each league is planned for eight weeks with one match per week. Those parameters might change depending on the number of teams in the league.

7. Each league is $20 per person. Payment is not collected until you join a team. Four teams must be created in a league before players can join a team.

Section 3: Player Ranking Explained

Players generally use their USAPA ranking….2.0, 2.5, 3.0, etc. to determine what level to play. If they don’t have a USAPA ranking, they can self-rate and choose what league they want to play in. It’s best if one asks someone knowledgeable to suggest what league is best for you.

The following levels are based on USAPA ratings:

Beginner is 2.0 – 3.0

Intermediate is 3.0 – 4.0

Advanced is 4.0+

If a player is a 3.0, they can decide if they want to play in a Beginner or Intermediate league. They can play in both if desired.

If a player is a 4.0, they can decide if they want to play in an Intermediate or Advanced league. They can play in both.

The Beginner level restricts slamming the ball. If you’re a slammer / banger, choose to play at the Intermediate level.



Section 4: Home court tips

It is nice if a team’s home court has pickleball courts that can be reserved but that is very rare for public courts. In many cities, tennis courts can be reserved but not pickleball courts. TRRPL offers a proprietary temporary pickleball court that can be used on any tennis court. One pickleball court can be created on each side of the tennis net. Portable pickleball nets are easy to come by on Amazon and ebay. Make sure you buy a 22ft wide net. With the portable nets and TRRPL’s temporary pickleball court, now any team can reserve one tennis court for 90 minutes and host a match.

Section 5: Cash prizes

The winners of each league will a cash prize of $20 per person. To be eligible for the cash prize, a player must play in at least 50% of the matches. So, theoretically, if you had 10 people on a team and five played in half of the games and the other five played the other half, 10 players could win money.

Even if you don't win a league, you still have a chance to win $10,000 each week! TravelersMeet.net, our network sponsor, is having a drawing each week for $10,000 and it's free to enter. Just visit TravelersMeet.net.
