  • Each singles or doubles team will be scheduled for 1 match a week.  *substitute allowed regular season.

  • If playing with teammate, please name when registering.  If no teammate, you'll be matched with a similar rated player.

  • Format is PLAY ALL 3 games.  Games to 11 win by 2.  Must play all 3 games.

League Standings (& tiebreaker):  

  1. ​​Overall Won-Loss record of GAMES (remember, 3 games per match!).
  2. Overall W-L record of the TEAM.
  3. Head to head.
  • All teams make the playoffs - Seedings in tournament are based on standings detailed above.

  • Start times will be 6,7, 8 (and 9 if available or needed).

Next Move:

When registration is nearing end of April, I'll begin to form leagues by ratings.  How YOU have rated yourself (drop down menu asks you to do so).  Leagues will contain teams of similar ratings.  As games and seasons go by, we'll have a clearer idea of our rating.  I will have real time computer generated output that will adjust your rating by how you're doing in your games.  This'll make it clearer next time asked what your rating is.  It'll bring those with a similar skill set into the same league, making competition even more exciting!

Registration will also ask what size and color Legends T-shirt you'd like, great for using during play!  But even cooler wearing in public!  (yes, I have a history of sensational, smile provoking, catchy & at times, edgy t's!).  Oh, and it's FREE to league players!

 

Scholarship & Sponsorship:
Here at Legends Sports, we are creating a history of inclusion!  We want EVERYONE to have an opportunity to play.  Therefore, we're setting up a scholarship fund that comes directly from sponsors* and those who donate to it.  It simply will satisfy the balance of registration fee for someone.

*sponsors will have advertising options.  Please   for that.  Mid-season I'll have this page updated with details.

FAQ:

May I bring a friend or is this a random draft to my team league?
BOTH!  You may bring a friend (name him/her at sign up).  OR, if you want to meet new people, I'll pull out a name from 
the "same skill set" hat and voila!, you have your partner!
Is the league play wide open age wise or do you organize matches like 18+, 40+, 55+.
League will be formatted INITIALLY by 'self rating' (2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 3.75, 4.0, 4.25, 4.5, 4.75, 5.0 etc.) regardless of age.  
HOWEVER if our numbers increase substantially in this 1st season, I'll adjust age groups.  Growing pains happen and this is one type.  However, a year from now this will not be a concern due to the number of players involved!

Did not see this or the actual locations of your pickleball sites ( saw names of schools).
Names of schools are where games will be held.  They have gyms and we'll be using those gyms.
