Players Seeking Partners

While we continue to provide opportunities for recreation through reservation play, we are also collecting contact information to start a new “Players Seeking Players” list to assist players with finding groups for reservation play. Please email abassett@cityofmissionviejo.org to be added to this list and sent a copy. In your email, please include:

  • Your first and last name
  • Best phone number and email address 
  • Skill level (Beginner (2.0 and under), Developing player (2.5) Intermediate (3.0), Advanced (3.5+)
  • Preferred Days and Times  

Only players who list their contact information on the list will be given a copy and allowed to sign up for spaces. Weekly emails will be sent out with spaces to sign up by skill level (Beginners - Advanced). Additionally, players can also contact each other to create set- foursomes for reservation based play.     

5-Week Organized Group Play - Starting in October

Join us for our first five-week organized pickleball play session! Players will remain on the same court each morning and will play with and against those assigned to their court until time runs out. Scores won't be tracked in these friendly matches and sanitized balls will be provided and collected after play is over.

Players are expected to adhere to social distance guidelines and masks are required when not on a pickleball court. If you can't commit to the full five weeks, please consider registering as a FREE alternate/sub player. Players are required to contact an alternate player from provided list should they not be able to play to ensure we have enough players for each court.
