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) You must have at least four people committed to playing on the court BEFORE you make the reservation.  At least four names MUST be included on the sign-up  The only exception to this is if a court has not yet been reserved by the morning of its availability.  In that case, it may be reserved by two people.

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 incuded on two court reservation slots on the same day.  During the winter months when court availability is limited, a player may not appear on a court reservation more than three days in a week.
