Gregg Park has just been informed that the new curtain will be installed next week starting on Monday, May10th.  There will be no pickleball in the gym on Tuesday,  May 11th, and it may also be cancelled on Wednesday evening.  We will send an e-blast Wednesday as soon as we know anything more.

Drills with "Little Mo" are coming back to Gregg Park.  Starting June 11th, and every Friday evening thereafter, from 6-7 pm, until the middle of August.

Cost is $15 per person per session. Each session is limited to a maximum of eight players, minimum of three.  Payment should be made at the Gregg Park front desk.  The receipt must be given to the instructor at the time of the session.  Nonmembers are welcome to attend but they must also pay a $10 daily facility fee.  Click here to sign up.

See below for an updated schedule for May and June for the Drills with "Little Mo" at Odell Weeks.   No drills on May 26 and June 2, due to court and Little Mo's availability.  All of the remaining drills are now available for signup.  Revised schedule as follows: 

Because of the outdoor courts being closed we have added a couple more indoor courts for drop-in play.   Mondays - courts 1,2,3; Tuesday and Thursday - courts 1,2,3,4; Wednesdays - courts 2,3,4,5,6 with "Little Mo" on court 1; Friday -  courts 2,3,4  with lessons on court 1; Saturdays - all courts open play from 915am-1230pm.  Also, there is drop-in play in the evenings - Tuesday-Friday from 6-830pm. Ever Sunday there is drop-in open play on courts 1,2,3 from 115-430PM.

The Aiken Pickleball community is canvasing interest for indoor spring league play. The league games are preliminarily planned for Friday evenings at Odell Weeks. The Friday night social league will be a team event with 3.0, 3.5, and 4.0 level games for men’s, women’s, and mixed doubles games (9 games total per match). A small enrollment fee per player will be required to cover costs associated with the league.   If you are interested in playing on a team in the league, please fill out the form at https://forms.gle/nZNmUCeArfQf75zA8.    

League start date has not been decided but will probably be sometime in early to mid-May.

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
