PICKLE U: 

On our 12 courts, we offer hours of general open play, ladders, round robins, play for specific levels, beginners and other clinics, reservation courts, tournament preparation, lessons, and after school and summer programs. Make Pickleball University your venue when visiting the Treasure Coast. Drop-In’s are welcome.

OPEN PLAY:

Get out and play with other pickleball enthusiasts a couple days per week or even more. Open play is a great way to meet new friends and hone your skills. You don’t need to gather a group of friends to go play, you can just show up by yourself and get in on a game. Don’t be shy, pickleballers are friendly and fun.

Please be aware of the Open Play rules and etiquette at PickleU.        When all the courts are filled, at the conclusion of every game all four players leave the court. Players who just finished place their paddles at the back of the paddle box. The next four paddles in the front of the line proceed to the open court. If you need a rest or want to mix up the groups a bit, don’t put your paddle back in the box until you are ready to get into the rotation. Please put your name on your paddle and do NOT move anyone else’s paddle. If courts are not full,and players are looking to play in a game, it would be courteous for those on court to invite the waiting players to rotate into their games. The main goal is MIX IT UP and HAVE FUN!

We offer open play days for members/guests/and drop ins. Join us on Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday 8am-2pm.  Free for members $3.00 fee for guests and drop ins.

ROUND ROBIN PLAY

A “ROUND ROBIN” is a structured form of play organized by skill level. It is designed so that all players are playing against people of roughly equal ability, which makes play the most fun and reasonably competitive for the majority of players.

Unless you hold a USAPA skill level rating already, whatever skill level you determine you are, determines the Round Robin you play in.
Go here for skill definitions.  IFP Rating Descriptions

Round Robins are played over an 1 1/2 hours. You will play six games, each with a different partner and against a different pair of opponents. When you sign in, you will be assigned a number. Your number remains yours throughout the session. It will dictate what court you play on, with whom you play with as a partner, and against which opponents. Your Round Robin Facilitator is present at every Round Robin. Please arrive no later than 15 minutes before the Round Robin is schedules to start.

After each game, your leader will call time, and you will given a new set of opponents and a new partner. By the end of six games, you will have played with six different partners and against 12 different opponents!

You may have a “bye” meaning where you sit out for one game if there is an uneven number of players signed up.

Round Robins are fun, competitive and challenging. We have a skill level for every member, whether its Beginner, Advanced Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced Intermediate or Advanced Round Robins. Come join the fun!

TOURNAMENT PREPERATION:

Here at Pickle U you will have the opportunity to practice with your partner as you tune up for an upcoming tournament. You’ll be able to play against others with the same goal in mind while you test and refine your skills.

Pickleball U Tournament Training or simply, PUTT takes place every Wednesday at 6pm. All that is asked of our players is that they will play or commit to play in ONE tournament this year anywhere except Vero. Please respect this request. This is not the day where you show up so you can test your skills against these serious students. Better to find a partner and enter a tournament.
