Tuesday Night Round Robin



We have begun our theme nights which include Ladies', Men's and Mixed Pairs Nights!

We have recently modified the Round Robin format by grouping players by level of play on our other nights.  The Dill group(level 2.5) are grouped to play five games with a different partner for each game.  The Hot & Spicy (3.0 level) and Jalapeno(3.5 + level) groups are placed in groups of 12 players.  Each player in the group is randomly paired with a partner(usually by drawing cards) and will play 5 games with the same partner against each team in their group.  This has been a fun and competitive event providing members with an opportunity to play with people they may not normally play with.



Saturday Morning Skatter Day


Because our Skatter Day competitions have been so popular, we have begun scheduling "bye" weeks for each level of play.  Invitations to sign up will be sent out each Sunday and will specify with groups will be participating that week.  Players are randomly placed in groups of four players(usually by drawing cards) and each player will play one game with each player in their group.  Scores will be recorded after each game and totaled after all three games are played.  Players will then be regrouped based on total scores and will play three more games with each player in their group.


Registration for Skatter Days will be  through Signup.com -  click on the link to the right. Signups will be open each Sunday and close on Fridays at 12:00 p.m. You will receive confirmation of your participation and time slot on Friday evenings.


Shark Challenge


This event is for our 4.0/advanced players are are offered at  specified times(TBA).  Players sign up with a partner and teams compete against each other for bragging rights. These games are organized similar to our Tuesday Round Robin format.  After games are played against each team, a final playoff game is played between teams finishing #1 and #2 and also for teams finishing #3 and #4.  Many members turn out to watch these very competitive games as they are very exciting!


Inter-Community Play


Often we schedule competitions with other local picklelball clubs in the area and the sign up is announed in advance and the play is similar to our Skatter Day format.

STORM & RAIN POLICY


For the safety of all players, the Brunswick Forest Pickleball Club will postpone and/or cancel an event or program when there is lightening within a three mile radius, when it’s raining, or when the courts are wet. We will try to notify players by email two hours in advance of postponement or cancellation. 


Sometimes we are in the middle of an event or ready to start an event, when rain and/or lightning starts. All members shall abide by the decision of the board or programming representative to cancel the balance of the event for the safety of our members.
