Tips for Keeping Score!

Here’s a tip from Mike…

We all know the most difficult part of playing Pickleball is… keeping score! We understand you can forget who served or what the last score was especially after a long rally, we just want to confirm you have a firm understanding of HOW to keep score.

As your play improves, you will start playing with more people, and it’s very important you announce the score properly and loudly each time you serve. Being able to keep accurate score is part of advancing to a higher skill level. To help you with this, please review this link. It also contains a wonderful video which explains very clearly how to keep score. If you have any questions, you can ask your Group Play Leader or respond to this email.

Pickleball Members can now play twice a day!

The Pickleball signups now allow play twice a day for full Members only.

    • Members can play once between 9 and 1:30, and once between 1:30 and 7:30 PM.
    • Members cannot play during consecutive time slots (EX: You cannot play at 10:30 and 12:00).
    • Please try to leave the 6:00 PM slot available for Villagers who still work.

Updates to Parking and Designated Participant Information

Hello Pickleballers!

You may have noticed that No Parking signs have been removed from the street along the Pickleball courts. While parking, please use caution when entering and exiting your vehicles.

While we have moved to the Orange Tier, we still must fill in Designated Participant forms, and no one can enter the court until checked in by the DP. Every 90 minute session must fill in a DP form. It would be helpful to have people sign up for the role when they reserve courts. The responsibilities are listed in this document. A sample form is provided for your review. Please make sure to follow these steps as a DP. Questions? Respond to this email.

Notably:
The first DP of the day picks up the clipboard from the Tennis Shack. They check in the players, ensure they are wearing masks entering & exiting the courts, use hand sanitizer and stay six feet apart.
At the end of each session, the DP fills in the form attached to their registration page, hangs the clipboard on the fence outside Court 1, and places the form in the box outside Building B.
If you are the last session of the day, take the clipboard back to the Tennis Shack (the building across from the tennis courts with the air hose on it) and leave it on the counter. Please do not put the clipboard in the box outside Building B – only the sheets go in there.

Thank you for your assistance in making sure we can continue to play Pickleball!

Another Email from the Pickleball Club!

Well this is confusing. The rules are changing everyday. Hold your hats.
The current advice relative to face coverings while on the court are as follows:

“Face coverings during play are strongly encouraged”

Each foursome on the court is going to have to figure out how they want to handle this.

Remember, you still need to wear a mask and use hand sanitizer entering and exiting the courts, and you must maintain 6 ft spacing at all times.

This will probably change again so please continue to watch your email.

Thank you,
Bill Pomeranz, President
