I want to thank everyone who took the time to make suggestions. We understand that many folks have never played in a ladder. Some of the suggestions we received were more targeted to help in the organization of League play and/or mini tournaments. Those suggestions will be forwarded on to the appropriate individuals. The primary goal of our Ladder is to encourage play, meet new people and play at times convenient for both parties. Remember, you can always have a fun match with any team on the ladder to improve! Another goal of the ladder, especially if you are new, is to better understand your rating. This is a common problem but understandable if you are new to the sport. There is nothing worse than entering a tournament, paying a fee and not being competitive. If one keeps losing to two teams above us, then it is a good indication we need to improve our skills. The Pictonia coaches can help us work on our needed skills if our desire is to improve. That’s what makes Pickleball challenging for everyone! Also, remember the ladder is a flexible activity and needs everyone’s cooperation. Since situations often change in our lives, you can join or leave the ladder at any time.
To help move the ladder along, it is important to our fellow Pickleball players to respond quickly to a challenge. Our current guidelines are listed on the Pictona website along with the changes below. Hopefully, the ladder will run smoothly by itself, however, both Terri and I are here to resolve any conflicts or clarify guidelines as needed. We hope you are all enjoying the ladder!
To help clarify some situations that have occurred please note the following:
Current standings on the ladder will remain the same as of 2/1/21. If you wish to join the ladder or make any changes, please let the front desk know.
Have Fun! - George and Terri
