Muni Pickleball Court Etiquette & Open Play Guidelines - What To Expect When You Visit

Be Kind! Pickleball is a social game and all levels are welcome during Open Play hours.
Please help dry courts during wet weather! Rather than take over a court that players have spent time drying, pay it ahead and assist by drying a court for others.
Introduce yourself to players you may not have met (before the game starts).
Before serving the ball, please announce the score loudly and clearly for both teams to hear.
Singles matches, practice, drills, instruction, private round-robins, or ladders are prohibited if others are waiting to use courts. Anyone playing singles must allow two additional players to challenge during Open Play hours.
Players interested in joining OPEN PLAY should find a court where the level of play matches their ability.
Enter the court between points, and wait on the bench until the current game ends.
Players waiting on the bench rotate in and players on court rotate out after each game to 11 (win by 2).
Players may not refuse to allow others to rotate in based on perceived skill level or for any other reason.
ONE player waiting: the winning team stays for the next game; waiting player rotates in.
TWO players waiting: the winning team stays for the next game; the losing team vacates the court (or wait on the bench for the next game); waiting challengers come on to play.  
THREE or FOUR players waiting: an equal number of players from the prior game vacate the court at the conclusion of the game; waiting players come on to play. When players are waiting, winners of two consecutive games must sit out one game, or move to another court.
