Ladders leagues are organized leagues in which players with relatively similar skills compete against each other. Your ranking on the ladder is  based upon  your pickleball rating and  your  cumulative  points from all matches you participate in. Players will move up or down the ladder based upon their cumulative point total.

  • Players will participate in 4 matches per night. 

  • All matches are double matches. 

  • Players will be assigned to a group based on their ranking and their cumulative league score.  

  • Games are played to 11, win by 1
