ABQ Pickleball Leagues

FALL 2019 LEAGUE

It’s time again to kick off the Fall League season. The league will differ a bit this coming season. Here is what is being offered:

1) 2.5/3.0 Tuesday Evening from 6-8pm & Thursday Morning from 8:30-10:30am – this is a continuation of the current round robin league that has been running every week since last Spring. The new round robin leagues below will copy how this group has run its league. It’s proved to be a great way to meet new players and play against players at the same level of skill.

2) 3.5/4.0 Wednesday Evening Round Robin League from 6-8pm – this will be a drop-in league for both 3.5 and 4.0 players. All you have to do is show up by the start time. You will play 15 minute rounds with a different partner and against different opponents each round. 

3) 3.5 Tuesday Morning Round Robin League from 9-11am – this will be a drop-in league for 3.5 players. All you have to do is show up by the start time. You will play 15 minute rounds with a different partner and against different opponents each round. 

4) 4.0 Wednesday Morning Team League at 9am – this will be 4 player, non-gender specific teams, like last season. Me and the captains will hold a draft to create the teams in an attempt to get the teams as competitive as possible and avoid teams that are ‘stacked’. If you are interested in this league, please email me by August 31st. You can also sign up as a sub.

5) 4.5/5.0 Thursday Morning Round Robin League from 9-11am – this will be a drop-in league for 4.5 and 5.0 players. All you have to do is show up by the start time. You will play 15 minute rounds with a different partner and against different opponents each round. 

All the Round Robin Leagues will start the 2nd week of September. The events will be posted on the ABQ Pickleball Club Shutterfly Calendar. Initially I would like to hear from you if you plan to play in any of the round robin leagues to get an estimated headcount. 

I will NEED at least two Round Robin Coordinators for every time slot. The Coordinators job is SUPER SIMPLE! All you have to do is choose the correct round robin form based on how many players show up that day, call out the numbers, and set a timer every 15 minute round. The Coordinator does not need to commit to be there every week which is why we need at least one per time slot. The coordinator also gets to play the entire time. PLEASE let me know if you can be a coordinator by August 31st. 

Feel free to contact me via email (staciebarron@aol.com) or phone (915-373-8210) if you have any questions. And help spread the word to all your pickleball friends. Thank you!
