Open Play is available on various days and nights each week for our indoor and outdoor courts at our Granite Street location. Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up. Pre-registration is strongly recommended. Players pre-registering will have priority over walk-in players. Open Play sessions are scheduled for 2-3 hour blocks.
Due to the high number of last minute cancellations, the open play sign up roster will be locked 24 hours before. Any player needing to remove themselves once the roster is locked, will need to email [email protected] to have their name removed. Players with excessive cancellations may be asked to prepay or may have their membership status changed. Players pre-registering and not showing up, or cancelling at least 2 hours in advance, will be charged the normal open play fee. This applies to Basic and Deluxe members. Open Play is $5 for BASIC Members, $8 for GUESTS and Free for DELUXE Members. Cash or PicklePasses can be used for Open Play. No credit cards please.
Please sign up for ONLY ONE SESSION PER DAY PER PERSON in advance to allow space for other players to register for open sessions. Customers can register for more additional sessions on the same day if less than 48 hours in advance. This applies to Open Play and Rentals.
Normal Court Rentals are $30 per "Session". A Session is scheduled for 2-3 hours on Sign Up Genius below. Any Open Play Session below labeled as "Open Play / Rental" or just "Rental" is available to be reserved as a private rental. If you want to rent a court during a normal "Open Play / Rental" session, simply reserve 6 spots and write "Court Rental" in the comments section. The person making the reservation is responsible for the $30 rental payment upon arrival at the front counter. The court rental can be for 1-6 players per court. Special Court Rentals for a 2 hour minimum are $10 per hour per court for Members and $15 for Non-Members and must be reserved and paid for in advance by calling or emailing Pickleball Charlotte.
PADDLE STACK & CHALLENGE PLAY
The default format for all Open Play is "4 Person Paddle Stack" with 4 new players playing each game. During some Open Play sessions, certain courts may be designated as "Challenge Courts". These courts allow for 2 players to challenge the "winners". Winners are allowed to stay together for multiple games. Please read the Pickleball Charlotte Open Play Rules & Policies for more information on Paddle Stacking, Check-In, Game Formats, Costs, etc. Outdoor Courts are always Paddle Stack with 4 new players each game.
All levels of players are invited to attend any Open Play session, unless otherwise posted. Some Sessions and Programs allow players to register by Skill Level. All Pickleball Charlotte players will be rated as one of the following Playing Levels. Please see our Pickleball Director to be rated. LEVELS: Beginner (2.0-2.5), Advanced Beginner (2.75-3.0), Intermediate (3.0-3.5), Advanced (3.75), Competitive (4.0+)
