(The standards in organized play are Round Robins, Shootouts or Ladder Play, and Challenge Court play. We say that because most pickleball clubs are doing some version of some or all of these. However, we know that many of you have developed interesting and unique organized play options. Sometimes you’ve done this for a particular reason, sometimes because it just seems like fun. Whatever your reason for developing these, we encourage you to submit them for inclusion on this page – so that others can experience your wonderfulness!)
The following two organized play options, Team Pickleball and Speed Pickleball, were submitted by Dave and Linda Scott, USAPA Ambassadors for Chesterfield County, VA. We ourselves have not experienced either one of these two as Dave and Linda do them, but as we read through them they made perfect sense to us – we don’t see any reason they wouldn’t work well. In fact, either one of the two may give us a structure that we may experiment with in our Bend evening play sessions, oriented towards younger working adults, (assuming our Court Utilization Group agrees it’s worth a try). Give ’em a try and come back and give some feedback.
