Pickleballerz Rules and Policies


IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING BOOKING POLICIES:


Courts are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. 


Individuals, who hoard courts, frequently cancel reservations, deliberately double book courts, arrive late, leave court times early or have a history of no-showing for reserved courts; face reservation sanctions, no-show fees and/or termination of their membership. A reservation is considered to be a “no-show” 15 minutes after the posted reservation time. At this point, the reservation is terminated and returned to Management for general usage. A fee of $20.00 will be assessed for all late court cancellations and no-shows to the primary reservation holder regardless of membership type. To avoid cancellation fees, cancellations must be completed online or by calling the front desk more than 24 hours prior to the beginning of the recorded reservation time.


There is a minimum of 2 players and maximum of 6 players per court for all court reservations.  Court reservations with a ball machine rental are excluded from the minimum player requirement.

 

Management reserves the right to limit court reservations for singles play to 1 hour and doubles to 2 hours.

Court reservations are subject to a minimum $20 per hour fee for members, $40 for non-members.

Outstanding court reservations are limited to 2 per week for members and non-members.

Individuals may arrange one advanced court time per day. If courts are available, same-day reservations may be made after the completion of the first reserved court time at the discretion of management and staff.
