The Club Summer Pickleball League: June 20 through August 17, 2023 Women on Tuesdays, Men on Thursdays
Teams will register as a team and play with the same partner for the duration of the league. Teams will be responsible for providing their own substitute if they have a player, or players, who cannot make a scheduled match. Please only choose a sub of equal or lesser skill level of the player who cannot play. Subs will not have to pay to play.
Teams will be loosely seeded prior to the start of league play. This is to ensure the best competitive matches possible. If we have miscalculated our seedings (keep in mind every year the NCAA mis-seeds teams for the national championship tournament), there will be plenty of time in the season for the cream to rise to the top. Each week the matches will be played in a pool play/round robin format. Each week your team will be part of a 4 team pool. Top 4 teams in one pool, next 4 teams in a second pool, etc. You will play pool play/round robin format with your designated pool for that week. Your results each week will determine if you move up a court/rung or down a court/rung. Games will be played to 15, win by 2.
So each week you will play three games against three separate teams within your rung. Each week your team will move up a court (ladder rung), stay at the same court, or move down a court, depending on your results for that week. Results from each week will be based on total wins. Tiebreakers will be head-to-head if two teams are tied. If more than two teams are tied, then point differential will be used as the tie breaker.
In order to maximize the use of available courts and to minimize the impact on Open Play, the League will be played at both the AJ Ferlazzo site and Hellwig Park. Jeff Kendrick will be scheduling the court assignments on the Sunday of each week of play for both leagues. Jeff will be collecting the scores for the Men’s League and tabulating the standings each week for both leagues. Candi Linkous will collect the Women’s League scores each week.
