Weekly Drop-In Round Robins
Partner Summer League
_____________________________________________________________________________________________

The ABQ Pickleball Club kicked off the Weekly Drop-In Round Robins for Advanced Beginners/3.0+ players last week. Due to the amount of players showing up we had to make the following changes:

1) The Morning group on Tuesday’s at 10am is CANCELLED immediately. We are very sorry about this but there just aren’t enough courts available in the mornings to secure enough courts.

2) The Evening group on Thursday will now START at 5pm instead of 6pm. We need to start earlier in order to secure enough courts. Also this group will be ADVANCED BEGINNERS only.
Coordinator: Michael Seabrook (505) 977-9727 / Back-up Rob Campbell (505) 205-4640

3) We are adding an Evening group on Tuesday at 5pm for 3.5 players. 3.5 rated players are SKILLED & EXPERIENCED PLAYERS who have usually been playing at least a year but usually two years.
Coordinator: Rob Campbell (505) 205-4640 / Back-up Michael Seabrook (505) 977-9727

The following rules still apply:
> No need to sign-up but MUST show up 5min before start time, bring a ball, and expect to play ~2hr until the rotation is finished.
> If weather is poor, Round Robin may be cancelled by the Coordinator. You can contact coordinator beforehand if questionable.
> Courts are not reserved, therefore arriving early to help coordinators secure courts is appreciated.
> Round Robin events are posted in the ABQ Pickleball Club Shutterfly Calendar.
