League Overview

Play will be on the designated day and time advertised for your league division and according to the schedule.  The location is set by the schedule and also noted by who is the host team.  The host team must coordinate court reservations, gate access, and any other instructions for play, usually handled, captain to captain.  The home team is responsible to report the scores to Pete. Pete's Cell is 239-848-6943, his email is Petedpickleballcoaching@gmail.com 


Rosters will be comprised of up to 8 players, any combination of those players can make up the 4-player team per match. The use of a player not on your roster will result in the loss of the match.  Teams may not use a player that is on the roster of another team, doing so will result in a loss of the match.  If you have not filled your 8 roster spots, and you need a sub, you can add them with Pete mid-season but it must be done prior to the match, and the person cannot be on another team's roster.  Only players who have played in a minimum of one regular-season match are eligible for playoffs, even if they are on the roster.  This will prevent playoff day ringers. Rosters for all teams will be provided to the league administrator prior to the season start date.  Updates and additions to rosters, if allowed by rule, will be sent to the league administrator prior to players being allowed to participate.

Four players per team will represent their team in the match and will be paired into teams, A and B, this designation is not skill-level, just team pairings.  The visiting team captain will provide the host team captain with their pairings for gate entry.  The host team captain is responsible to record scores and provide results to the league administrator at the conclusion of all matches.  The home team will flip a coin and the road team will call the toss.  If they win the toss they can select a side, serve or defer the choice to the other team.  

Matches will be best 2 out of 3 sets. The first 2 sets will be played to  15 points, win by one.  Teams will switch sides at 8 points.  If it goes to a third set the match is to 11pts win by 1pt.  If the match results are split after the A’s and B’s play, one A team member, and one B team member will play together as the tie-breaker team.  The captains will provide each other with the new players for the tiebreaker and record their names. The home team will then have the opportunity to call the coin toss and the tiebreaker will begin.  The tie-breaker match will be 1 set to 11 win by one, switch sides at 6. All matches will be allowed one, 60-second timeout per team, per set.  The timeout can be called by the players on the court or by the Captain or the Captain's designee from the sidelines.  There will be no coaching during the match only on timeouts and changeovers.   

In the event of an injury or a player no-showing, place the missing person in the B match, and still play the A match.  The B match will be an automatic loss for the team without the player, but if their A team wins, those two games will be a split, and tiebreaker rules will be used to determine match outcome.  One player from the winning A team, and the solo B player will make up the tiebreaking team for the short-handed team.

We will use the USAPA official rules set (https://www.usapa.org/docs/ifp/USAPA-Rulebook.pdf) as our guide, but provided this is a fun league, sportsmanship and discretion is encouraged.  

The official league ball is the Franklin X40.  Please use this ball for all match play.  

Make-ups for rainouts will be the immediate Sunday following the missed date, at 2pm at the court identified in the schedule.  If both captains can agree on a different date and time for the make-up and notify the league administrator that is also acceptable as long as rainout make-ups are completed within the same week.  Matches not completed within the same week will result in a loss for both teams.   

Only Organizer can change settings.
