All levels of play are welcome, but the court assignments are completely random so high and low skill level players may end up playing on the same court. The average level of the players is around 2.5 but ranges from 2.0 to 3.5 with most falling around 2.5 to 3.0. Beginners that have had the introductory lesson or equivalent experience could join as it isn’t competitive, but rather for fun.
Folks should arrive about 5 minutes early as we try to start right on time. People line up and number off. Once we know how many players we have and how many courts we need, then we simply follow a sheet and the starting person calls out ” on court #5 numbers 12 and 4 are serving to numbers 7 and 16″ and so on. Games are played to 11. When 2 groups are finished then all players stop and we move on to the next round. We play 6 rounds or games so folks need to commit to that many games. It usually takes about 1.5 hours or less.
