HERE is the October Schedule – click on this link–>   October

A wonderful place to play pickleball on the Coast.  A great layout, totally fair for people of all ages and abilities.

Everyone is entitled to play 2 times a week at “Level Play”.  In addition, Social Play is also offered so people of all levels of ability can play together in a pleasant atmosphere.

And – it’s only $3 per session.  And —– there is equipment and coaching available.  And ——— we’re awesome.

Please wear clean, non-marking shoes in the Auditorium.

If you know the basics and the rules, though, you are welcome to come to Social Play for Beginners to Intermediate – SP-Beg-Int – Check the schedule.  Equipment is provided. Remember to check the website for schedule changes.
There will be a sign up sheet for interested beginners LESSONS at the front desk for November.   The October class is full.

There is, however a time slot on Sunday 1:30 to 3 for beginners to come out and try pickleball.

If you have played elsewhere you are welcome to come to our Social Play sessions “SPAL” = Social Play All Levels, “SP-Beg-Int” = Social Play Beginners to Intermediate (1.0 to 2.5/3.0(ish))

“SP- Int-Adv”- Social Play – Intermediate to Advanced (3.0(ish) and above).

If you have been assessed elsewhere, you are welcome to come out to Level Play session at the level at which you have been assessed – email Bert / Gill at ssacpickleball@gmail.com and we’ll let the group know you will  be showing up.  We reserve the right to reassess as all groups assess somewhat differently.  If you would like to be assessed to move up to the next Level, check out our procedure below.  Any questions, email Bert / Gill (our volunteer pickleball co-ordinators) at ssacpickleball@gmail.com.

We are rated fairly, but remember our population.  As the sport grows and more young people participate and techniques improve, these ratings might be too high for tournament players.   We’re okay with that.

Thank you to all of our coaches for volunteering their time to help interested players improve their games. Pickleball Machine sessions are being organized by the coaches to help us keeners improve our skills even more.

Much appreciated!

We use Rally scoring when there are players waiting.  If there are only 8 players, the server chooses between traditional and rally scoring.

Here is how Rally scoring works – Rally Point Scoring
