Court Usage and Drop-in Days

Practice and non-scoring games are subject to availability of courts, and are limited to 15 minutes maximum.

Drop-in Days

Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm are Drop-in Days

This rule applies to all users: residents, members and guests. 

On Drop-in days, foursomes cannot go on the sign-up board as long as there is an unfilled square ahead of them. For example, if there are only two people signed up at an earlier time, a foursome must break up and have two members join the previous duo. Or the foursome can stay off the board until the original two players have partners. 

The Sign-up Board

These rules apply to all users: residents, members and guests.  

If you are a “drop in player” looking to play with three other “drop in players”, follow these steps:

    • If there are no names in a box, write your name and time (top right box) and wait for 3 other “drop in players” to join your foursome. Using marker provided in basket.
    • Once you have 4 players, go play on the first available court … 1-6 … based upon your sign up time … note the court # that your group is going to (top right box).
    • If there are 1, 2 or 3 other names in a box, write your name in this box.
    • Go play on the first available court … 1-6 … providing the sign up time is earlier than other players … note the court # that your group is going to (top right box).

If you are a “foursome”, follow these steps:

    • All players must be at the courts and available to play when signing in a group of two or four players.
    • Write the 4 names in an empty box along with the time (top right box)
    • Go play on the first available court … 1-6 … based upon your sign up time. Note the court # that your group is going to (top right box).

On the sign-up board, a name cannot be duplicated on either the drop-in single sign-up or the four/two group sign-up until the player is off the court. Any duplication will result in the group being deleted from the sign-up square. All names must be listed in the sign-up square (no +3/2).

A four/two group is a group of four or two persons wanting to play singles.

Once a match has been completed, a four/two group can sign up again together. Individuals also have the option of selecting another four/two group or participating in the drop in single sign-up. Players who are next to go on a court must take the first available court (no waiting for a better court or changing courts). If a player needs to drop out of a square, then players in the squares below need to be asked if they are willing to move up. If nobody wants to move up then anybody can fill the open spot. Once you sign up you cannot ERASE your name and sign up in a different box.

A Training Clinic is provided for Sun City Lincoln Hills residents only, every Wednesday at @ 1:00 PM for two hours. The training is given by Lincoln Hills Pickleball Club Members.
