Styles of Play

Opening Day Madness!
We offer several different styles of play for different levels of pickleball players. Our drop-in play times for visiting players are generally from 9 to noon on weekdays with the time split between “paddles down social play” and the more competitive “level play.” On specific days of the week, we offer our Members Drills and Skills sessions to hone their personal player development and the more competitive Members Ladder Play where we track each player’s personal on-court effectiveness. During our season we generally have two or three in club tournaments for our Members.

Lessons and Drills

At the beginning of every season, we offer two sets of lessons for our Members. Beginning pickleball players and players relatively new to the sport benefit from our 2.0 to 2.5 lessons. After the beginning of the season lessons have taken place, we offer 3.0 to 3.5 lessons for those players of a more intermediate caliber. We also offer our Drills and Skills sessions for all levels of players after the 3.0 to 3.5 lessons have been completed.

 

Ladder Play

During our season we offer the more competitive Ladder Play for those intermediate and advanced players who want a little more competition in their pickleball play. We track each participant’s effectiveness and they are placed with participants of like abilities for their Ladder session.

Marina and Ernie

OPC Pickleball Club was originally started by a brave band of eager volunteers and continues to run as a fully functioning pickleball club with many different facets for our Members. We are completely run by a dedicated and eager group of volunteers who give generously of their time and talents to our club. From the elected OPC Executive Committee who administrate and guide us, to the many different Volunteers in specific committees that involve themselves so that we can all enjoy pickleball together, our Volunteers are an integral part of OPC Pickleball Club. We are always in need of different people to get involved at different times of our season. We always need people with time and talents who want to be a functioning part of our club.
