Looking to try singles play? Join us Valentine's Day Weekend as we host a Skinny Singles king of the court style event!

Skinny Singles is a modified version of singles play and is a great way to dip your toe into this fun and exciting type of pickleball play. Players will only play on half the court and score just 8 points to win the match. This is a great way to try singles play without doubting your ability to cover the court and having the fitness to play to 11 points!

Players will be asked to self rate their singles play from Beginner up to 3.5+ skill level and then placed in a ladder format over 10 courts for their first match ups based on their self reported rating. Winners will move up a court to play their next opponent and losers will move down a court. All games will be limited to a 12 minute time limit. A total of 5 rounds will be played.

Limited to 20 participants.

Open to Members and Non-Members.

All skill levels and genders.

Skinny Singles game rules will be provided to all participants once registered.

Sign up online here or contact the Welcome Desk at 386.310.7067

How does the Round Robin work?RR Novice Sheet

Starting at 9 am the Round Robin Leader will assign a number to each participant. Using our Round Robin rotation sheets (we have rotations for 8 through 40 players) players will play 6 games to 11, win by 2 and have a 12 minute time limit.

Players will simply find their number for each round, go to their designated court and play with their assigned partner.

This is a fun way to meet new players who are learning the game or are between a 2.5 and 3.0 skill level!

What courts will the Round Robin be played on?

The Novice Play Round Robins will be hosted on the South and West pod of courts past the S.R. Perrott Pavilion (courts 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 21, 22, 23 & 24).

Players should meet in the S.R. Perrott Pavilion at 9 am to receive their participant number for the Round Robin. 

It will take approximately 1.5 hours to play 6 rounds.

We will host the Novice Round Robins every Sunday,  except for specific dates when Pictona will be hosting special events such as tournaments.
