The outdoor pickleball courts at Virginia Acres Park and Eustis Park will reopen on Saturday, May 30.  Gates are scheduled to be unlocked by 8 am.  A list of guidelines will be posted on the courts. When we receive a copy they will also be posted on this website.

Indoor pickleball at Odell Weeks will resume on Monday, June 1.  Only court reservation play will be allowed indoors, with a minimum of two, maximum of four people allowed on each court.  Weekday reservation slots will be 9am - 10:30 AM, 10:45 AM – 12:15 PM, 12:30 – 2:00 PM, and 2:15 –  3:45 PM.  Only courts 1, 3, 4 and 6 will be available for play.  The middle courts (2 & 5) will be closed to facilitate social distancing.  

Reservation slots will be posted on the Sign-up Genius on Thursday, May 28th at 8:00 AM for the week of June 1-6.  There is play on Saturday, June 6th from 9:15am - 4:15 PM.  The screen asking for an access code will be removed when the courts are available for reservation.  YOU WILL NOT NEED AN ACCESS CODE IN ORDER TO RESERVE A COURT.   A player may only make/appear on two reservations for the first 24 hours after the courts are posted.  If there are still free courts on Friday morning at 8:00 AM, players may make/appear on one additional sign-up.  On the actual day of the play, a player may reserve any open court for that day.  

Players need to leave the courts promptly at the end of the time period so that city employees may disinfect the courts.  You should bring your own pickleballs.

Players will need to check in at the front desk and sign a new waiver. The check-in computer will be behind the desk with Jeana, who will manually check people in after they scan their cards. Check-in times will be a little longer than usual.

There will be no indoor or outdoor pickleball offered at Smith-Hazel from the time of reopening though August 14 due to day camp.

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.
