OPA Leagues

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 10 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 are responsible for organizing their own players and spares.

All players and spares must be OPA members and one contact for each group should register for the group.  You will be required to provide all the names and OPA numbers of the players and spares you will use for your play. You may submit these names during the registration process or by email to LeaguePlay@OttawaPickleballAssociation.com. Out of town visitors are welcome at no extra charge.

The court must be booked for the duration of the session, but we will throw in one session for free!  The cost of booking is $21/session. Players are responsible for collecting and submitting the full payment, which must be made in advance. Booking must be made through the OPA website via the registration button.

Bookings will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

If courts become available on short notice, we will post them here, so check back during the season.

OPA Tiered League Play

The following 6 leagues are designed to provide play AT LEVEL or ABOVE. If you are looking to play in a mixed level environment, please consider the Blue, Green, Yellow Mixed League, Saturday Social, Single Court Usage or playing at the city drop ins.

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)
