SCC Pickleball Club - Etiquette and Safety Guidelines
While there are official rules for the play of the game and official rules of the SCCPBC, there are many other aspects of pickleball that can and do affect play and the personal interactions between the members of our club. What follows here are mostly common sense, yet sometimes overlooked or underestimated in their importance in maintaining a positive and safe environment.
We want our Club to be a place within our community, where we can gather, socialize and play with others who enjoy the game of pickleball. The purpose of this guide is to help everyone to be aware that how we treat other members within the club shapes and defines it. No matter what level of skill, whether you are playing for recreation or driven to succeed at a tournament level, keeping these guidelines in mind will help everyone to have a more enjoyable, and safe time at the courts.
There are general social niceties within the game of pickleball, just as there are in any sport. Many of these you will find to be common no matter where you choose to play. Some are simply being a good sport and general courtesy, others are tailored more for the diversity of skills that may be in any game or venue. Competitive or social, beginner to advanced …the rules of good behavior should apply to all.
