Court Rules and Etiquette

Players are responsible for providing their own pickleballs when they play. Be sure to write your name on your ball and take it with you when you leave the court.

Bags, chairs, and water bottles may be lined up inside the east fence. Labeling your gear is a good idea.

First serve will always take place on the south side (away from the pool).

All games to be played to 11, win by 2.

No singles during SPC designated times once courts are full.

Be sure to use the sign-up boards when available. Do not add your name to the board until you are done with your previous game. Do not sign up on more than one board at a time.

Must be 18 unless accompanied by an adult.

Profanity and rough play are prohibited!


Courts 1,2,3,5,6

2 on 2 off rule: Winners stay and split partners with the next 2 on the board.

Exception: If no one is waiting, split winners and losers and play on.

Exception:  When all the courts are full and we have 12 or more people waiting, we will then go to the 4 on 4 off rule. All 4 players leave (winners and losers ) and 4 new players arrive to take their place.
 

Court 4 (Challenge Court)

2 on 2 off rule: Winners stay for up to 3 consecutive wins, then they must get off and let 4 new players on.

Exception: If no one is waiting, winners must split with losers after 3 wins and continue play as usual. If only 2 are waiting, winners must sit out for 1 game or sign up on challenge board as usual.

Exception: When all the other courts are full and we have 12 or more people waiting to play, Challenge Court will be eliminated and used as a regular court until we get back under 12 people waiting. We will go to the 4 on 4 off rule at this time. All players leave and 4 new players arrive.
