Muni Pickleball Court Etiquette & Open Play Guidelines

Singles matches, practice, drills, instruction, private round-robins, or ladders are prohibited if others are waiting to use courts.

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.
