Based upon continuing feedback and input provided by WRPBC membership, and due to the limited number of courts available, this model for play will be followed each morning (Monday through Sunday) from sunrise until 11:00 AM. This revision supersedes all previous model for play documents and is effective as of its posting date.
Please keep in mind that this format is simply the next step in the continual evolution of our club and court management efforts. This Model for Play has been (and will continue to be) developed to help limit confusion and provide the best utilization of our courts.
The goal of these guidelines is to provide fair and equitable play time for our members, allowing them to meet their individual skill level goals while maintaining the enjoyable community aspects of being a social pickleball club.
Paddle racks will be used, even when the courts are not full, to allow for rotation of players on the courts, with a 1, 2, 3, or 4 on/off scenario. It is your responsibility to monitor your racked paddle at all times – if you are not ready to enter an available court when you are in the paddle que, your paddle will be moved to the end of the rack. Please remember to move remaining paddles up the que line as you pull yours from rotation.
If the rotation of players is less than 4 people, it will be the decision of the group of players on the court to determine the new player(s) positioning/teammate. In the interest of fairness, please limit consecutive games on the same court to two (2) per individual player.
IF THERE ARE EMPTY COURTS AVAILABLE: A waiting group of 4 players (of either style of play) may utilize the available court(s) UNTIL SUCH TIME as there are enough players of the appropriate style of play to fill their respectively identified courts (example: Competitive players may use courts 4, 5, or 6 -OR- Recreational players may use courts 1, 2, or 3). Please keep in mind that everyone comes to play – be considerate and respectful in the utilization of our limited court space.
Adherence to rotation of players, equitable play time and club-wide common courtesy practices are EVERY MEMBERS’ RESPONSIBILITY and shall be maintained through respectful communications amongst players on the courts. If you see someone taking advantage of a particular situation on the courts, SAY SOMETHING. If a players’ behavior is putting either their own or anyone else’s health and safety at risk, DO SOMETHING.
