Club Policies

We are a fully integrated club. We play with respect and harmony. Pickleball was created to be fun, competitive and a highly social sport. Since its inception, it has embodied an ethic of good sportsmanship. This includes respect, fair play and graciousness in winning or losing.

Pickleball Court and Club Etiquette


  • Treat all members/guests with courtesy and respect.
  • Introduce yourself to any player/member you do not know.
  • Respect the equipment and our facility and please help keep it clean.
  • Respect the schedule and the court reservations.
  • If you only want to play with a select group of people, please reserve a court through PicklePlanner.
  • If you are unsure of your skill level, please do a self-evaluation. The questionnaire is available on the bulletin board in the lounge.
  • Please attend sessions that are at your skill level. Open play is where you can enjoy playing with a variety of skills.
  • If you are unsure of your skill level, please do a self-assessment.
Practice good sportsmanship
  • Players are responsible for line calls. If the receiving team is unsure the ball is "IN".
  • When making line calls respect your opponent’s right to make all calls on their end of the court.
  • Call your own shot "OUT" if you see it out.
  • Do not call a ball "OUT" unless you clearly see it.
  • Resolve any uncertainty in favor of your opponents.
  • Call a fault on yourself or your partner as soon as the fault occurs, regardless of whether your opponents are aware of the fault.
  • Claim a replay only if a hindrance affects your team's ability to play the ball.
Guidelines for club play
  • Ensure ALL players are integrated and everyone plays.
  • Rotate on and off the court fairly, and courteously.
  • Each group should elect a leader to ensure fairness and integrated play.
  • Rotation samples:
    • No one waiting: play to 11, win by 2, rotate between groups when two or more games have finished.
    • 1 to 4 waiting: play to 11, win by 1, winners stay and split
    • 5 or more waiting: play to 9, win by 1, 4 on and 4 off
    • Use pickleball play apps with a timer (10 or 12 minutes).
    • Please avoid hitting excessively to a weaker player.
    • Be considerate when playing less and more skilled players.
    • Coach others only when asked.
Make safety a priority, and use common sense.
  • We strongly recommend that all members and guests wear eye protection and proper court shoes.
  • Please avoid running backward on the court. Turn and run forward.
  • When your ball strays onto another court, please call out loud "Ball Court #".
  • Wait in your court for the ball to be returned.
  • If a ball strays onto your court, make eye contact with the correct person, and toss it back to them without disrupting play on other courts.
  • Never throw your paddle or strike the ball in anger or frustration.
  • If you must cross over or behind an active court, wait until play has stopped. Then cross quickly in a single group to minimize disruption of play.
