Outdoor Play Formats
Royal Gardens Community League Courts 4030-117 Street NW, Edmonton with 10 courts available for play on a seasonal basis.
WATCH FOR OUR SCHEDULE OF PLAY EVERY SPRING AND SUMMER AND IT WILL BE EMAILED TO MEMBERS AND POSTED ON THIS WEBSITE AND OUR FACEBOOK PAGE.
DROP-IN PLAY: For all Skill Levels with scheduled periods of play of 2 to 3 hours when all players can come and expect/hope to find other players looking for games. Any Member can go out on the next open court and it usually operates on a Mix or Match of players with different skill levels - unless a specific skill level is listed. Be courteous and wait until the previous group is filled before organizing a new group of 4 players. Pick your partners or take a chance – the object is to enjoy and have fun with the Edmonton Pickleball Club.
PICKLEBALL ORIENTATION: This will be an excellent opportunity for newcomers to learn how to play the game – is meant for Beginners or those who have started to play without any formal training. We will cover the basics. Paddles and balls provided. Spread the word. Intermediate & Advanced Skill Lessons/Clinics will also be offered. Check the Schedule AND the NEWS tab above for the next set of Lessons.
OPEN PLAY: Courts are available for all Members as no event is scheduled and will be operated without a Court Host. Players may come and access the courts with 6 dedicated nets and 4 portable nets, balls and a few loaner paddles using the combination locks. The combination for the gate to the courts and storage box is given to each dues paying member with their new membership card. The combination is also available for Members only by LOGIN to this website and then click on the MEMBERS TAB. Suggest you arrange your group in advance as other players may not be present. Please remember to put away and lock away the equipment (including loaner paddles) and lock up the courts when you leave.
ROUND ROBIN: Players exchange partners for each game (usually to 11) based upon Round Robin Sheets from those who show up to play at the designated start time. Late comers can play but must then play with remaining players looking for partners.
SHOOTOUT / LADDER: Uses the same basic format of a Round Robin with the scores being kept and recorded by the Club and the total points for each player will create a win percentage handicap that will be kept throughout the season. Your handicap can move you up and down the Ladder as it will place you in similar groupings over the season to keep your games most challenging and interesting. Check the Schedule for your skill level.
