All about creating your PTS account, signing up, ratings and more…

Court Guidelines:

Only 6 players per court, 4 players + 2 waiting to rotate in, and a group is only allowed to play for 2 hours.

The club will open up the 8:30 – 10:30 am games 4 weeks in advance. From 10:30 am on players may open up their own sessions. Any sessions opened up beyond the 4-week timeframe will be deleted.

It is up to the players on each court to determine how they want to rotate in. Typically the winners of a game stay on, split up, and partner with one of the waiting players. Winners stay on for 2 games and then rotate out, regardless of whether or not they won.

  • Report “no-shows” so Club can monitor them, repeat offenders will be blocked for a set timeframe.
  • Please be courteous on the courts, keep score and announce it clearly before serving.
  • Each member is allowed 1 guest but must specify guest’s name, rating, and vaccine status in notes.
  • Any player of lower or upper rating may be invited to play in a session by a player signed up for that session.
  • Courts of same ratings will mix in with each other only if players agree.
  • On Saturdays the lower court is reserved for beginner/teaching sessions.

To Sign Up:

To play, you must use the registration system: Pickleball Scheduler (PTS). It is a simple web interface and only takes a couple of minutes to create a free account, all players must create their own account and add their Covid Vaccination Status.

Here is more information about the scheduler.
Thank you for using the Scheduler!

Ratings:

When signing up for PTS enter your self-rating based on USAPA Ratings Definitions or a tournament you have played in. The club no longer accepts fractional ratings of .25 or .75.

How to challenge another player’s self-rating or your own:

A player’s rating can be challenged by another player by making an official request in writing to the club with an explanation as to why.

In order to challenge another player’s rating, or to change your own rating, the following system will be used:

  • A skills session will be set up for the player challenging/challenged. Once successfully completed player moves on to a game as specified next.
  • A game will be arranged by the Rating Committee with the person challenged (or seeking to change rating) and 3 players at the level the Challenger claims to be/wants to move up to.
  • The Challenger must win 21 points with their partner over the 3 games.
  • Play will rotate so Challenger is teamed up with each of the other 3 players.
  • If the Challenger accumulates the necessary 21 points, her/his rating will remain the same or will be increased if it was lower.
  • If the Challenger does not accumulate the necessary 21 points, their rating will be lowered or in the case of a player wanting to move up, will remain the same.
  • Challenger must wait 2 months before requesting an opportunity to re-rate.
