Footwear:  Non-marking court shoes are mandatory for Members and guests.


Balls and Paddles:  Players can use any ball they agree to play.  For the record, the Franklin X-40 is the official pickleball of USA Pickleball and the US Open Pickleball Championships.  Paddles are rated for noise; it would be the Club’s preference if quieter paddles are used. 


On Leaving the Courts – Ensure that all refuse is removed, the gate is closed, and everyone who played with you is on the sign-up sheet.


Happy Pickleballing!!
