There are paddle racks for each set of courts according to skill level and day of week. Place your paddle in the appropriate rack in the next open space, moving from left to right. After completion of the next game on a court for your skill level, the next four paddles are up to play. It is your responsibility to monitor your paddle position and be ready to play when your turn is up. If you are not ready to play, your paddle may be moved to the end of the rack. After your set of 4 paddles are removed from the rack, make sure the remaining paddles are advanced on the rack. If there are fewer than 4 paddles on the rack, the departing group decides who stays to play with the next group.
Club skill levels are self-assessed. You may use the skill rating definitions and skill assessment sheets on the Skill Ratings page of this website to help determine your skill level.
You are welcome to use any open court on a first come first served basis after member play hours. Please move to another open court to accommodate scheduled club events.
Structured Play events are organized play events available to club members in addition to morning member play. Structured Play groups may be created based on skill level, gender, and/or age. The format for Structured Play events may be round robin, ladder, mixer, or shuttle.
Challenge Courts provide a format for highly competitive teams to play together and hone their skills, most likely in preparation for a tournament. Read more about how to use Challenge Courts here.
Household Guests are friends or family members residing temporarily with, and sponsored by, Wickenburg Ranch homeowners or WRPBC members in good standing. Household Guests may participate in WRPBC scheduled activities and/or special events providing the sponsoring homeowner or club member accompanies and assumes all responsibility for their guests’ participation fees and behavior.
Non-Resident Guests (except for those participating in WR Golf & Social Club, Troon, or Trilogy programs) are not eligible to obtain WRPBC membership and therefore may not participate in WRPBC scheduled activities and/or social events. All non-resident guests are required to follow the established Troon guest policy – checking in at the Spa desk, paying guest fee, and wearing the appropriate guest wristband while utilizing WR amenities. The per member guest limit is 3 people at any one time unless you have obtained advanced approval from Golf & Social Club management.
If this is your first time or if you need help, please ask an experienced member for assistance. It is recommended to have one person on each end of the net to first lift it onto the wheels, roll the net to play position and fold the wheels back. After use, please move the portable net off the tennis court and back to its storage area so that tennis players have ready access to their courts.
The combinations are sent to verified members after they join our club as part of the welcome email.
