Pickleball

Pickleball is a fun and energetic racquet sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis! Two, three, or four players use paddles to hit a ball, similar to a wiffle ball, over a net. The sport shares features with other racquet sports, including the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules similar to tennis with a few modifications.

New Indoor Rules: 

  • Face coverings to be worn when not participating in the activity (e.g., on the sidelines). 
  • Face coverings to be worn by coaches, support staff, and observers at all times, and in compliance with the CDPH Guidance for the Use of Face Coverings. 
  • Observers maintain at least 6 feet from non-household members (e.g., on the sidelines). 
  • No sharing of drink bottles and other personal items and equipment. 
  • Mixing with other households prior to and post any practice or competition must strictly adhere to current gathering guidance. 
  • Limit indoor sports activities (practice, conditioning) to comply with capacity limits (which shall include all athletes, coaches, and observers) indicated in the current CDPH Gym & Fitness Center Guidance Capacity. 
  • Associated indoor activities for the team (e.g., dinners, film study) are prohibited if engaged in competition given evidence that transmission is more likely to occur in these indoor higher risk settings. 
  • Teams must not participate in out-of-state games and tournaments; several multistate outbreaks have been reported around the nation, including California residents. 

 

These are the current guidelines for indoor recreation, among a few others from an operations standpoint.  This includes maximizing the extent of the ventilation available in an indoor space - meaning, we will need to have most of the doors in the pickleball room during playing times.  Another issue is the allowed capacity for the Grand Oak Room where we play.  As the direction states that all players NOT playing must keep a 6-foot distance, the maximum capacity for the room at any given time during Pickleball is 20 people.  All participants beyond this will need to wait outside of the building to rotate inside.
