From the 2021 tournament committee:
Please click here to take the survey so the Aiken Pickleball tournament leaders can determine the availability of volunteers from our local pickleball community.
Our volunteers are critical to the success of this event.
Our tournament is tentatively scheduled for Sept 10 -12, indoors at H. Odell Weeks. Because of COVID, the following are the anticipated changes from our tournaments in the past:
Face coverings/masks will be required inside of Weeks, except when on a court performing any of the following functions: Playing a match, court side referee, court side monitor. Vaccination status cannot play into this rule because of current City policy.
The number of participants will be capped at a level less than in past tournaments. This would be managed during the registration process. Limiting the number of participants reduces the number of people in the building thereby reducing match delays and enhancing social distancing.
Lunch will not be served indoors. A food truck and outdoor seating may be considered.
Congregating in the main hallway will be discouraged. Physically-distanced seating may be offered in some of the other rooms in the building or outside.
As usual though, volunteers are needed for:
- Court monitors
- Check-In Table
- Set Up/Tear Down
