COVID-19 GUIDELINES FOR OUTDOOR PLAY
GJ Parks & Rec, in compliance with state rules, has strict guidelines for outdoor pickleball play at Lincoln Park and Pine Ridge Courts. We must adhere to these rules or the courts will be closed to public play.
In effect is a 50-player limit at a court complex — so 50 players at Lincoln Park West Courts, 50 players at Lincoln Park East Courts, and 50 players at PineRidge Courts. Players must continue to social distance at 6 feet.
A note on foursome play: Foursomes, such as families/friends who want to stay together, must vacate the court after each game if there is another foursome waiting to play.
Round Robin Play is Back
Round Robin Play at the Lincoln Park courts runs Wednesdays and Fridays from 8-11 a.m. Wednesday will be for skill level 3.5 and lower. Friday will be for level 3.5 and higher. If you don’t know your player rating, visit HERE.
Pine Ridge Round Robins run Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8-11 a.m. (Pine Ridge courts are located at 359 Ridges Blvd. in the Redlands.) All skill levels are welcome Tuesday and Thursday.
All Round Robins are free and open to the public. NOTE: Round Robins are organized by independent volunteers. WSPC “supports” the event (equipment, balls, etc.) but this is NOT a club event.
WSPC Big Float 2020
Set your calendars for Saturday, July 11, for a leisurely and fun float down the Colorado River. We will put in around 11 a.m. at the 24 Road Redlands boat ramp. We will take out at the Loma Boat Ramp and finish the rest of the evening with a BBQ/potluck at Jeff Smith’s place in Mack. Click HERE for more information.
Sweet 16 Tourney July
3.0 and 4.0+ skill level players will play July 18; the 3.5 will play July 19. Registration via email opens July 1. Your membership must be current to register.
Due to a bulk discount the club receives, we sell Franklin neon yellow outdoor balls at our cost for $20/dozen, or 3 for $5. They normally retail for $30/dozen online. Reach out to George Gerson, WSPC membership director, to make a purchase. We are happy to be able to provide this service to our members.
