Winter Evening 10-Week Pickleball Leagues 

Join us at Felipe for our Winter 10-week competitive 16 - 24 player round-robin doubles leagues with no set partner. Individual scores during the season determine the champion in each division. Subs are needed when regular players can’t play. Prizes include monthly membership, visors/hats, and more. Cost is $30 for members; $90 non-members. 

Note: This is not an instructional period but rather skilled matched play. All players should know how to play pickleball before registering. All players must know how to serve and score consistently and correctly prior to the start of each session.

Please note league levels below.

  • For leagues that offer a range such as 3.0-3.5, this league would be designed for players that are not quite challenged at the 3.0 level, but find the 3.5 level too challenging.
  • Players should only play in 1 league level. If that level is offered on more than one day, you may register for both days.
    • If you register for 2 leagues that are near one another in skill level, (such as 3.0, and 3.0 - 3.5) staff will contact you after week 2 of the league season to see which league you need to drop from and will contact waitlisted players to replace you.
