Yay!! & WELCOME BACK! We are now open for the indoor Pickleball season. The Playerlineup.com schedule has been posted and is all ready for sign-ups. Covid instructions are in place with signage throughout the club. Please be aware of your spacing when not playing. Masks are mandatory in the lounge & locker rooms. Playing on court mask wearing is at your discretion. If you are on the sidelines waiting to play you must wear a mask until you go on court.
Play is simple. Winners stay & split. Losers retreat to sidelines, sign up on the wipe board and wait to play again. Next 2 players up each match up with one of the winners and resume play. First team to reach 11 points wins (no winning by “2”).
We have installed industrial air circulators to take in fresh air from the outside into the courts and exhaust fans to blow it back out so there is a constant flow of fresh air. If you feel compromised in any way we ask that you refrain from coming to ensure the health & safety of those who do attend.
Any constructive suggestions you have to improve on this strategy would be listened to and implemented if it makes good sense in this nonsensical time. See you all on court soon!!!

I'm familiar with the "winners stay" rotation method.

Not a fan. We all pay the same to be there, better players get more court time than lesser ones. A player could potentially play the entire time.

Not here!! Winners are allowed 3 consecutive games then sit. Next 3 players on side lines come in to play. Repeat...repeat....repeat!! It worx if all adhere to protocol.

Eric. A concern I have about moving indoors is finding an area where we are not shoulder to shoulder when not playing

Are the courts that are adjacent to the pickleball courts available so that if you opened the roll up door it would give us an area to spread out?? I don’t want to take away revenue if those courts are being used, but I won’t feel comfortable playing indoors unless we can find a location where we can spread out and feel safe. At least until we can get this foolish pandemic behind us

Thanks for considering my suggestion and I’m also open to any suggestions you may have to provide a safe environment ... especially for us old farts

Thanks, Dave

Dave - 3 easy options:
1) Use the lounge area outside of the court to wait in,
when game is over switch out players. Winners stay on & split.
Losers walk off. If u win a 2nd time u must leave and the next 3
players walk on to play
Repeat. OR
2) If u want to remain inside on court stand against the wall at 6 foot
intervals where it is already marked off. OR
3) Opt out of playing altogether - we would rather have you feel safe
then worry and play like crap

Other precautions we have taken to try and limit exposure are:
1) Hand sanitizer stations can be found throughout the club
2) Digital Thermometer is available at entrance,
3) Screen doors have been installed on all courts to allow fresh air
from outside be to drawn into the courts and circulated around.
4) 2 very large 3 foot air circulator fans were installed to draw clean
fresh air into the club & blown out thru exhaust fans in peaks at
opposite end of courts. Worx GREAT! Fresh clean air drawn in
from the outside is turned over every 3 minutes on every court

Also....please don't "FAHT"!!! We wanna breathe clean fresh air!!! LOL

Thanks for reply and doing your best to keep us safe. I will continue to play outside until no longer feasible. I will the try the inside as an option to see how safe I feel. Who knows we may have a vaccine by then and it will no longer be a concern

Thanks, Dave
