The Holly Lake Ranch Pickleball Association (HLRPA) was formed in 2015 to advocate advancement of the sport of pickleball on Holly Lake Ranch.  HLRPA members participate in recreational play, leagues, clinics, social activities and competitive events.  Pickleball is fun and affordable, provides a great cardio workout, and is a very social sport.  We encourage you to join us and discover why pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports in America!

Intro to Pickleball

To ensure safety and smooth operations on pickleball courts, request you follow guidelines below: 

Court Safety 

  • Wear proper court shoes.
  • Always warm up before beginning your play.
  • Do NOT backup on the court – turn and move sideways.
  • Do NOT run into other active courts when playing your ball.
  • When retrieving an errant ball, look for players waving to return ball. 
  • When your ball crosses into another court, call out ‘ball on court’.
  • When going to and from a court be aware and stay clear of other active players and courts.
  • Keep yourself well hydrated.
  • Consider wearing some type of eye protection.

System installed to improve player rotations:

  • This system is to be utilized during all scheduled HLRPA member open play and all other times whenever there are more than 16 players on the courts.
  • Place your paddle in the first available spot.
  • You may not move another person’s paddle without their permission.
  • Once a group of four is up for play, take your paddles and slide the next up bar to the next group.
  • Look for opportunities to play with anyone and everyone.
  • Have fun!
