Structured Play Schedule - 2018

NOTICE: COURT USAGE CHANGE

The Voyager Pickleball Board has decided to add RATED play on Mondays through Fridays, 7am to 10am.  This play will have selected courts for all skill levels.
 
For those days and times:
Court 12 is for RATED 3.0 players only;
Courts 9 and 10 are for RATED 3.5 players only;
Court 4 is for RATED 4.0+ players only.

This change begins Tuesday, February 20th.
 
This has been decided due to some players trying to play above their skill level and not sure where they should be playing, and for the reason that at those times RATED players have equal play.

The RATED players list is on the bulletin board by Court 5

For these 5 courts this adds up to only 3 hours/day and 15 hours a week for levels to be playing with equally skilled players.

ID Name Tags – Emergency
We have had several medical emergencies on the pickleball courts.  After contacting the needed emergency agencies someone should contact the Voyager Front Gate personnel (520-574-5400) and Voyager Security (520-574-5105) to alert them that emergency vehicles will be needed at the pickleball court.
Placing ID and emergency contact information on the outside of our pickleball bags will help others to contact family to notify them of the emergency situation. 
If you have an old Voyager laminated ID badge, you can put a label on the back with your emergency phone number and then hang that off your pickleball bag.
Another way is to use http://www.medids.com/free-id.php#.WhcGIUqnH8d  to print out and laminate your own medical emergency ID.

If you do carry your phone in your pickleball bag, an easy method for others to contact family by phone is to list that person and their phone number under a contact name of ICE (In Case of Emergency). 



Be Safe….. Thank You
