The club offers a free “Introduction to Pickleball” course to CA residents. The course is for six weeks every Tuesday and Friday from 1:00 to 3:00 PM. A new class begins every two weeks beginning in mid-October and ending in mid-May. Volunteer Instructors in our club will teach you the rules of the game and conduct exercises to help you learn and develop skills. During the classes, paddles and balls are provided. Students need to provide their SCC CA Badge (each session) to participate and wear loose clothing and hard-court shoes. Enrollment for classes is online through the club e-mail system. Class sizes are limited. Enroll early. Email the club at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in lessons.
What to Expect:
Shortly after submitting your application you will receive an email from the club, welcoming you and providing you some useful information. The club supplies the balls for use at the court by members.
As a member you will receive periodic emails from the club, with club announcements, events and current information. We hold club brunches, picnics and holiday parties regularly. We are always looking for volunteers to help with these events, let any board member know if you are willing to help. It's a great way to get to know other club members.
As a member, you are welcome to join play during club hours Monday through Saturday from 7 AM to 11 AM and again from 6 PM to 10PM. Games are always played with 4 people during open play. During club hours, we use a rotational play system. As players complete a game, they return to the bench. The next 4 players that have been waiting the longest are the next 4 in line to play when a court opens up.
During Club hours in the morning, we also have designated skill level play on court 5. For example, Beginners may play one morning, Intermediate the next, and Advanced the following day. Check the board at the courts for the most current schedule for designated skill level play.
