OPEN PLAY


Pickleball at the JCC Rockland is a recreational and social activity which is open to players of all levels.

To ensure fair and continuous play etiquette rules are in place for rotating players in and out of games.

  • Courts on the LEFT side of the gymnasium are for more advanced play.
  • When more than 8 people are waiting to play games are played to 9 points, win by 1.


PICKLEBALL SAFETY:

  • If you hit a ball onto the other court, call out “Ball on court”. Do not run onto another court unannounced.
  • Come prepared with proper footwear.
  • Stretch before and after you play.
  • Never dive in order to hit a ball.
  • If someone falls or gets injured, all play stops until their needs are addressed.
  • Stay hydrated! Bring a bottle of water with you.

Our Pickleball Community is here to help. We are happy to pair you with a seasoned Pickleball buddy to teach you the fundamentals and get you started. Prior to meeting with your buddy, we strongly suggest that you acquaint yourself with the game, rules, and scoring by watching YouTube videos.

Your buddy can help you to determine your level of play and will explain the open play process. Please review our JCC PICKLEBALL ETIQUETTE page before you meet.
