SKILL LEVELS + AGES

Is this open to all skill levels? All Ages?

Yes, everyone from newbies to pros are welcome and encouraged to come. Players must be at least 12 years old to participate.


What if I don’t know my skill level?

You can self-rate by looking at the various skill levels listed on the USAPA’s Web site.


Do I have to play with only others in my skill level?

No, players may play at any skill level they wish. But experience has shown us that most players get the most enjoyment playing with others near their own skill level.


How will you have courts divided between skill levels?

We will have 12 courts available for play and will assign courts either by skill levels or a range of skill levels based on registrations. For example, if we have a high number of 4.0 players, there will be more 4.0 courts.


PLAY + PLAYING TIME

Do I have to play ALL the time?

No. Players are free to come and go as they wish. Players often take breaks and go visit many of the fantastic things to do and see in the area.


What score do we play to?

All games will be to 11, win by one.


How long will I have to wait to play between games?

We’ve limited registrations to 125 players. With 12 courts, 48 players can play at one time. We anticipate most games will take an average of 20 minutes. Once you rotate off, you should not have to wait about 20 minutes for your next game even during peak occupancy.
