General guidelines 

In order to provide the best possible playing experience for everyone, the Pickledillys operate under a set of guidelines. Currently we have three types of play spread throughout the available times each day.  These include drop-in play with all levels mixing together, drop-in play with courts designated by skill level, and court reservation play.  When courts are designated by skill level, we have different schematics (weekday mornings, weekday evenings, and weekends) based on the court usage for different skill levels during those times.  These designations are periodically reviewed and adjusted.    

All players who participate in drop-in play by skill levels need to be rated by the committee.  Visitors may play for a brief period at the level the player representatives feel is appropriate.  Players who are visiting for a longer term and who have a rating at another location should check with the player representatives at that level to determine if that rating is acceptable for our local system.

Guidelines for reserving courts via Sign-up Genius

1) When you reserve a court, place at least a first initial and full last name in the comments block.You must have at least four people committed to playing on the court BEFORE you make the reservation.  Any one person can reserve only 2 courts in a time block, even if you have 12 or more players. 

2) Please be considerate of your fellow players and choose to attend either drop-in play or court reservation time, but not both on the same day. It is not allowed for a player to be included on two court reservation slots on the same day.  A player may not appear on a court reservation more than three days in a week for the first 24 hours after the courts are posted..

3) If a court has not been reserved on the day that it is available, it may be reserved by two people for singles.
