**** Postponed until October 7th ****

As a way for the pickleball community to regroup and to welcome new members, Aiken Pickleball will be hosting a Friday Fun Night Potluck followed by indoor play at Odell Weeks on Friday, Sept. 30 from 5-8 pm.    Over eighty new players have been added to our roster and this will be a wonderful way to welcome new players and to reconnect with Pickleball friends we have not seen in quite a while.

Please sign up for the Friday Fun Night Potluck and Play on our website - or click here - letting us know you are coming and if you are bringing guests.  All are welcome.

Door prizes - At 5:45pm, two drawings will be held for gift certificates for private lessons with Mo and Ben. You must be present to win.

Effective September 1, the City of Aiken reduced the daily fee at Odell Weeks for residents of Aiken from $10 to $6. The daily fee for non-residents is still $10. At Smith-Hazel the adult daily fee is $3  for residents and non-residents alike.

General guidelines 

In order to provide the best possible playing experience for everyone, the Pickledillys operate under a set of guidelines. Normally 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 are available at the "Sign-ups" tab
