Court Etiquette Guidelines. Rev 1
Open play multiple courts whiteboard system.
Goal - To fairly rotate courts while allowing players to participate with players of their skill/choosing.
** Gym floors - Indoor tennis shoes only. Check for rocks etc. No all black soles.
-Squares are filled as if reading. The rotation is left to right and top to bottom on the board.
-The next square with four full names takes the empty court.
- If a square is being passed up because it only has two players, two players leaving the empty court can fill those spots if they remain empty.
-Only write your own name.
-Only write someone else's name if they directly instruct you to.
-NEVER erase someone else’s name
-If you are not readily available for your court players may substitute someone until you return.
-Full games are played until the number of people waiting is greater than the total number of players on the courts. Games may then be shortened to 9 win by one. A member of the board will normally make this call if attending. Just be courteous.
-Obey the rules of pickleball. If you do not know the rules please ask.
- Respect individual choice.
-Consider taking one game a day to help a lower level player.
-Communicate and ask nicely if you would like to play a game with better players.
