A new format for drop in will start Monday November 22th. Below are the rules for the new format. The rules are also available on our website.
Let me know if there are any questions.
NEW DROP-IN TRIAL RULES
- Drop-In begins promptly at 9am. Those who have their paddles in the paddle holders may go on the courts at 9am.
- Each skill level has been given their own set of courts (2.5 – 5.0), as well as 1 Challenge court (Exception: 2.5 level will play on the 3.0 challenge court). Players may play Up or Down within a .5 level of their current skill for both the challenge court and drop-in courts. In other words, if you are a 4.0 level player, you may play on the 3.5, 4.0 or 4.5/5.0 courts. ALL COURTS WILL BE LABELED for each Skill Level and Challenge Court, as well as RULES for both Drop-In and Challenge will be posted.
2.5 – COURTS 1, 2 (Challenge Court 3)
3.0 – COURTS 3-8 (Challenge Court 3)
3.5 – COURTS 9-14, (Challenge Court 14)
4.0 – COURTS 15, 16,18, 20, 21, 22 (Challenge Court 16)
4.5/5.0 – COURTS 17, 19 (Challenge Court 19)
- Challenge Courts: Players may challenge teams on this court. A team may win up to 2 games in a row, but must then come off the court. Four new players would then start the next game. Place paddles in holders at court to challenge.
- DROP-IN RULES: We have chosen NOT to use the Saddle Paddle Wheels. Instead, the “Winners and Losers” format will be used as a trial-test. When a game is finished and the players come off the courts, the two winners place their paddles in the Upper-Level holders (HIGH), and the two losers place their paddles in the Lower-Level holders (LOW). Players will then split the next time they play on the same court. Four new players will go onto a court every time a court opens up in their pod. An arrow will be available at each set of holders, so players know which group of four is up next.
- Only four players will be allowed to be on any court at any given time, par an emergency. Viewers or friends must sit and watch from outside the courts.
- No “Organized” group play will be allowed during Drop-In. If you find this is still occurring, please feel free to email the club stating the situation.
- If a court is empty, “any” skill level may play on that court. However, if those skill-level players come at a later time (as some do still work), they are allowed to have that court.
