League Format

Week 1 | Royalty of the Hill | 7pm - 9:30pm

  • Warm up 6:30 - 7pm; open play after the Royalty of the Hill is complete.
  • Courts will be numbered starting with 1 as the top court.
  • Each court will play until the timer is over.
  • Winners will go up, losers will go down. Both teams split.
  • At the end of the night, the ladder will be seeded based on the results from the event.
  • If you are absent, returning players who are absent that week will be placed at the bottom of the top half or bottom of the ladder, depending on results from previous leagues.
  • New players who miss the first week will be placed at the bottom of the ladder.

 

Weeks 2 - 9 | Ladder | 7pm - 9pm

  • Warm up 6:30 - 7pm; open play after all teams have completed their three games.
  • Three games to 15 (win by 1) will be played each night, alternating partners with the 3 other players on your court. 
  • Points will be tallied (highest possible is 45 points each night) with the highest point player on the court advancing the following week, the lowest point player dropping the following week, and the 2 middle point players staying on the same court the following week.

League Rules

You MUST consent to the League Rules prior to registering for league or your registration will be deleted. You can review and sign the consent form here.

Attendance

  • A lot of people want play in our league.
  • Please join the sub list instead of signing up for a regular spot if you plan on being gone for more than three of the eight weeks

Attitude

  • Pickleball league is competitive, but fun and community come first. We expect that you learned to compete, win, and lose gracefully and can play nicely with others. 
  • No one wants to spend their evening dealing with someone else's whining, tantrums, or grouchiness - we play pickleball to get away from those things. 
  • Bad Behavior can be grounds for removal from the league. 

 

Planned Absences & No Show Policy

  • You are required to provide written communication to the league of any planned absences. If you need to miss a week, we need to find you a sub, so let us know early that you need to miss.
  • You are required to complete the Attendance Google Form for each and every day you will be absent from league. You can find the Attendance Google Form at the top of this page.  We will not accept email, text, or phone calls notifications of a planned absence. If you don't let us know, you will be kicked out of league.
    • You are expected to inform the league the day before league night or sooner.
    • A 'Day of' cancellation will have a negative impact on your ladder ranking. Additionally, you will be removed from the league after the second 'Day of' cancellation and will have to sit out of the next league season.
    • No Shows: You are required to provide written notice to the league administrator by at least 3pm the day of the league. If you fail to do so, you will be immediately removed from the league and will have to sit out the next league season.

 

  • You are responsible for confirming that we have received your absence notification. This should be done two ways: 
    • Google Form Notification: You will receive an notification automatically from the Google Form to your email address. 
    • Team Reach Notification: Our attendance volunteer will post the known absences in TeamReach the day of or before league. You MUST reply to the message if you plan to be absent and do not see your name. Failure to do so will be consider a "no show."

 

Registration

You MUST consent to the League Rules prior to registering for the league or your registration will be deleted. You can review and sign the consent form here.

Registration will be linked to this page when available. 

 

Communication

Email

We primarily communicate via email. Each ladder league has its own Google Group mailing list.

  • You will be automatically added to the mailing list after you register for league.
  • You must confirm that you are receiving emails for league prior to the 2nd week of league. After the 2nd week, you will be responsible for being aware of the content in those messages.

TeamReach

TeamReach is used for (1) confirming the absences and (2) last minute weather related messages / cancellation. You must join the TeamReach to be part of the league. Please avoid sending other messages through the TeamReach group. 

  • You will need to add yourself to the TeamReach group.
  • You must be in the TeamReach group by the 2nd week of league. After the 2nd week, you will be responsible for being aware of the content in those messages.

FAQS

1. Someone on my court is arguing a line call. What should I do? 

Abide by the line call rules (see related FAQ). If the conversation goes on for more than 60 seconds, you need to notify the league admin. He or she will make a ruling on the situation so that play can continue. 

 

2. I signed up for league. I received the confirmation email but no other communication. What should I do?

Check your spam for messages from the organizers (occasionally our messages are sent to spam). 

Secondly, join the TeamReach group and privately message the organizers to review that your email is on the list.

 

3. How do line calls work in pickleball?

  • Only make line calls on  your side of the pickleball court and always strive for accuracy
  • Only call "out" balls when space is clearly visible between the line and where the pickleball lands
  • Call "out" balls promptly (before the start of the next point)
  • Use voice and/or hand signals to call "out" balls
  • Give the benefit of the doubt to your opponents
  • If you and your partner disagrees, the ball is "in"
  • Spectators should not make any line calls
  • Do not question opponents' line calls unless there is a referee
  • You may ask your opponents to make a line call (but you give up your right to make the call and, if your opponents cannot make the call, the call will be "in")
  • An "out" call prior to the pickleball bouncing will be deemed partner communication and not a line call
  • You may overrule a line call that is to your disadvantage (and in favor of your opponents) at any time
