Pickleball is a self-refereed program.

Pickleball is played on a badminton-sized court: 20’ x 44.’ The ball is served diagonally (starting with the right-hand service-square), and points can only be scored by the side that serves.

Matches
Regular Season
     Matches are comprised of 3 to 5 games and must finish within 50 minutes. All games count (not best of matches) towards a team's standings. If time has expired for the match the score at the moment time expires is provided to the League Coordinator and posted as such.
Playoffs

    Matches use the best of 3 format.
