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!
