Registration and Payment for Open Play is required. There will be a maximum number of players allowed in each Open Play session to ensure all players have plenty of playing time. Open Play sessions are scheduled for 2 to 3 hour blocks of time. Players should not take the courts until their scheduled session time and should clear the courts at the session end time. Players needing to cancel, may withdrawal their name in CourtReserve at least 12 hours in advance to receive a credit.
Our CourtReserve system accepts Credit Cards, Account Credit or Pickle-Passes to pay for your Open Play fee. CourtReserve will automatically charge you the correct fee based on your current membership level and the location you are signing up for. A paid membership is not required, but does save you money and allows you to register for events and court rentals earlier than non-members.
Some Open Play sessions are scheduled for All Player Levels, while others are scheduled for Specific Player Levels. All players must follow the normal Pickleball Charlotte Open Play rules and are not allowed to play with the same players all night and “take over” a court. Players wanting to play with their own group on their own court should consider renting a court.
Player Blocks are similar to Open Play, but instead of being open to ANY player, Player Blocks allow for an organizer to create their own sessions for SPECIFIC players. Those players can then register and pay online individually and will be able to see who else is playing. Player Blocks are the same cost as Open Play and are usually based on 5-6 players per court for 2 to 2.5 hours. Email Pickleball Charlotte for more information or to schedule your own Player Block.
