Kickingbird Schedule – Effective - Wednesday, June 9, 2021
We currently have 12 indoor courts and 24 outdoor courts. We will open the indoor facility during every session. Courts are allocated first to League play and ROUND ROBINS, then to OPEN PLAY or SKILL LEVEL PLAY. If the weather dictates indoor play only and we have League play or ROUND ROBINS scheduled, we may have very few, if any, OPEN PLAY or SKILL LEVEL PLAY courts available.
DEFINITIONS OF PLAY
LEAGUE PLAY – League participants must pre-register for the league prior to the commencement of league play. Participants are expected to either play in all league events, or line up a substitute if you can’t attend a session. Please be on time and ready to begin play by the assigned start time of each league.
SKILL LEVEL PLAY – Members are asked to play against like rated/skilled players. As a general rule, Beginner/Novice players (2.0/2.5) will play on courts 9-15, Intermediate players (3.0/3.5) on courts 1-8, and Advanced players (3.5+) on courts 21-26. However, league play and round robins will sometimes effect these court assignments. Ask the assigned court monitor about court assignments when you check in. Please play on appropriate courts, given your current rating.
LEVEL 2.0 – 2.5 ROUND ROBIN – This event is for novice players or players new to the game with a rating of either 2.0 or 2.5.
LEVEL 2.5 – 3.0 ROUND ROBIN – You must have a 2.5 or higher rating to participate in this event.
LEVEL 3.0 ROUND ROBIN – You must have a 3.0 or higher rating to participate in this event.
LEVEL 3.5+ ROUND ROBIN – You must have a 3.5 or higher rating to participate in this event.
MIXED DOUBLES 3.0+ ROUND ROBIN – Teams consist of one male player and one female player. At least one member of each team must have a club rating of 3.0 or higher. Online registration is required. If you register for this event and then need to cancel, it is very important that you either cancel your registration or email Mary Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know you or your partner can’t attend.
PLEASE DON’T PARK IN THE GOLF PARKING LOT. THIS IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT DURING OUR EVENING PLAY TIMES AS THEY TEND TO LOCK THE GATES TO THE GOLF PARKING LOT BEFORE WE ARE FINISHED EACH EVENING. IF OUR PARKING LOT IS FULL, PLEASE PARK ACROSS THE STREET IN THE HOMELAND PARKING LOT.
This schedule reflects time when the Greater OKC Pickleball Club has scheduled/organized activities. However, the outdoor courts at Kickingbird are open from dawn to dusk 7 days per week. You are welcome to line up a group and go play on the outdoor courts anytime. If you play outside of our organized play times you will need to bring your own balls and the club house & the indoor facility will be closed.
