HOW THE EDMONTON PICKLEBALL CLUB OPERATES ATTHE OUTDOOR COURTS AT ROYAL GARDENS COMMUNITY LEAGUE
4030-117 Street NW Edmonton Alberta
OUR COURTS ACCESS
In accordance with our COVID-19 Protocols, our EPC Courts at Royal Gardens are locked when not in use and all play is scheduled and supervised by court monitors. Drop-In play is not permitted.
OUR OUTDOOR COURT SCHEDULE
Our Outdoor Court Schedule is published and available on this website and posted on the courts fence.
Our court schedule is organic, meaning we make adjustments to the schedule according to players’ needs, and our website always has the latest court schedules.
ROUND ROBIN PLAY
All EPC Round Robin Play is set up by player ratings. Player ratings at 2.0 and 2.5 are self-ratings.
Players at 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0 must have a Club Rating of 3.0, 3.5 or 4.0 to participate in club events at those levels.
Our website contains an excellent description of the skills you must master at each rating level. Please check it out carefully. Then rate yourself dispassionately based on your mastery of the skills. That’s mastery – not occasional use.
We want you to have fun and learn and grow in Pickleball. Self-rating yourself too high, beyond your mastery level, will not make Pickleball fun for you. You will only be frustrated and who really needs that? So, when choosing which level of Round Robin on the Court Schedule you want to attend, choose your appropriate rated Round Robin session.
When you get to your chosen Round Robin, the court monitor will use the Round Robin Draw Sheets in the Round Robin Boxes and will call out the court assignments. Then play and have fun!
PLAYER RATINGS AND RATINGS MATTER
Players self-identify your own rating for 2.0 and 2.5 and play in Round Robins or other club events according to your self-identified rating.
A significant change applies to players at 3.0 and above. Players at 3.0 and above must have either a Tournament Rating or a Club Rating of 3.0 or above. Self-identified ratings will no longer suffice for 3.0 and beyond.
So, all players in the 3.0+ sessions must have either a Tournament Rating or Club Rating of 3.0+.
To be eligible for the 4.5+ sessions, players must have a 4.5+ Tournament Rating.
If you have questions about your rating or if your rating changes, please contact our Ratings Chair, Helen Thomson at email@example.com
BALLS AND DEMO PADDLES
Balls and Demo Paddles are available for your use. The court monitor will give them to you if you need them.
