Players will be allowed to make three court reservations at 8am on Thursday, and one additional reservation on Friday.  Saturday, players may make an unlimited number of reservations for the remainder of the week, with no restrictions.  The reservation must include at least one other player (first initial, last name).   

The last group scheduled for each court needs to take the nets down and put them and dividers away. 

 A maximum of 6 players is allowed on or beside each court.

Starting Tuesday, July 14th,  courts 1 and 3 at Gregg Park Civic Center will be designated for open play. There will be a maximum of six players per court, and SIGN-UP IS REQUIRED.  Slots will 10:30 am – 12:00 pm and 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and from 9:00 -10:30 am and 10:30 am -12:00 pm on Saturdays.   

There will be no rotation between courts, but players may initially switch courts to balance out the number of players if desired.  THIS IS NOT DROP-IN PLAY.  You must be signed up to play prior to arrival at Gregg Park Civic Center.  You can only sign up for one open play session per day.  The sign-up slots will be added on Thursday of the previous week.

Courts 4 and 6 will remain group reservation courts.

Indoor pickleball will resume at Gregg Park Civic Center starting Tuesday, June 23. The times available will be Tuesdays and Thursdays 10:30 AM – 1:30 PM and Saturdays 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM. To accommodate Day Camp, there will be no weekday play the weeks of July 6, July 20, and July 27, although Saturdays will still be available those weeks.   The Center is currently scheduled to be open for play on Saturday, July 4th.

Courts 1, 3, 4, and 6 will be open for reservation play only. Courts 2 and 5 will remain closed in the interest of social distancing.

On Monday, June 1st, Odell Weeks re-opened for indoor play - court reservations only - just one of the many safeguards they implemented for our safety.  Odell changed the entrance to the one adjacent to Gym 2.  They moved the check-in desk into the lobby by the bulletin board, with Jeana behind a plexiglass divider.  Only Gym 2 and the mens and ladies room were open.  The courts open for play were staggered so there was no interaction between other players.  No extra players were permitted.  Times were spaced out so between reservations the staff could wipe down the four chairs on each court.  The entire Odell facifilty was dedicated to pickleball from 9am-3:45pm.  Odell has done everything they could to provide a safe environment for us to play pickleball indoors.   One group of players even wore masks while playing.  They had to feel safer than  shopping at Publix.

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.
