Note: There are 2 courts to sign up for each session. If you have 8 or more in your group, you may sign up for 2 courts. Please sign up so you know the number of nets that will be needed during your session. Also, if there are more than 4 players on any court, than games will be played to 9 points and then players would rotate. There are speical occasions (pickleball basics, beginners, skills practice, etc.) that warrant a reservation, so that can be added to the comments section as well. Note time in comments by your name.
Equipment is available on site. At this time there are 8 wooden paddles and indoor balls. To reserve a paddle you may want to note that in the comment section when signing up. Donations were made by Play It Again Sports on 611 W Northland Ave, Appleton, WI 54911 and Scheels Sporting Goods on 4301 W Wisconsin Ave, Appleton, WI 54913. Thanks to them for their generosity!
The portable nets may have to be assembled and taken down during your session. The nets can be pushed carefully to a side wall, preferably the northeast wall, when play is done for the day. Jen will lock the gym doors at the end of the day.
Thanks to Jane and Larry G. for the new orange pickleball court tape and lines!
