Saturday Social

We’ve planned a perfect Saturday Night for our Pickleball enthusiasts, with 2.5 hours of pickleball followed by an opportunity to socialize after with friends at Monkey Joe’s Bar and Grill (Westgate Shopping Centre), where Saturday Social participants will receive a discount on food and drinks.

 

Each week, registered players will be invited to play via the BenchApp software.  The first 15 players to sign up each week will be arranged by level into 3 groups for play. Walk-ins will not be accepted.

Please note:  You do not need to commit to all 8 sessions, but you do need to register to be invited to play. Just pay the $3.50 fee when you arrive at the venue each week.

Single Court Usage

The OPA has secured some single court time that can be used by members for play or practice. Players should recruit a group of up to 6 players of your choosing and have one member register for their group. This is a new initiative for the OPA. Once registrations have been taken, the League Director will contact you with availability, based on the demand. If courts become available on short notice, we will post them here, so check back during the season.

OPA Tiered League Play

The following 5 leagues are designed to group players of similar abilities, to allow for challenging games for all participants. Improve your technique, shot selection and strategy to get you to the next level.

The success of these leagues requires that players are registered at the appropriate level.  If you are missing more than ONE skill at a specific level, you should select the previous level. Skills are meant to be assessed in a real game situation.

*The Registration Committee will be assessing registrations for each league to balance the level of play and numbers of registrants. There may be occasions where a player will be asked to play in a different session if they have registered for a league where there is not a good fit. (See The Fine Print)
