Spring Ladder League
Show off the game you've been honing this winter

Register for ladder

Join us on Sundays at 3 pm for a spring pickleball ladder league. Ladder starts on April 21st and ends on June 2nd (skipping May 12th, Mother’s Day).

What are the benefits of a ladder league?

  • You don’t need to find a partner; new 4somes or 5somes are created every week, based on previous playing results.
  • The ranking system groups players of similar levels, so you’re always benefiting from a challenging game.
  • You can opt out for a week without impacting anyone else or letting down a partner. (However, please don’t register if you already know that you’ll miss more than 2 sessions, as that creates substantial work for the volunteer coordinators to find subs.)

How does it work?

  • We begin in week 1 with an initial seeding of the 15 players into three fivesomes – Court 1 (highest), Court 2, and Court 3
  • Within each fivesome:
    • The players play round robin during the time slot — five 11-point games, each player has one bye
    • Each player’s cumulative score from their four games this week (not past weeks) are used to rank people within their five-some
    • The top two players that week move up a court for next week, and the bottom two move down a court
    • Repeat it all the following week
  • If games finish early, players can stay after their games to engage in open play
  • You will be able to view the rankings online via a shared Google Spreadsheet

What is the skill level?

  • This is an “all levels but capable” ladder. Participants are expected to have experience regularly playing pickleball, be fully aware of all rules, etc. No instruction will be provided.

Beginner "Quick Start" Clinic
Ninety minutes of instruction and drills to learn the basics of pickleball! Children ages 11 and up are welcome so long as a parent is also participating. CSC will provide paddles and balls. (Given the modest cost and very limited slots, we cannot offer refunds if you register and decide not to attend.)

Register for Saturday, May 18th at 3 pm

Pickleball Social with Chapel Gate
Join us at the CSC courts as we host our friends from Chapel Gate for social, all-levels play. Light breakfast served. 9:30 am to noon Sat, June 1st. Please register so we have enough food and can contact you in case of inclement weather.

Weekly Member Open Play
Starting on Wed, May 1st, the front court will be blocked off every Wednesday from 6 pm to 9 pm for member open play. While there is no instruction and an assumption everyone is capable of playing independently, this is for all levels! This is a no-RSVP, drop in, stay as long as you want format. (There will not be an official cancellation in case of inclement weather.) Players will mix in with each other using a paddle line. Come meet your fellow club members, and find those friends you want to continue scheduling games with!
