to view their final skill rating. The Pickle Scores system works the same as DUPR, which adjusts according to your matches played and the strength of your opponents.
We are looking forward to the fall, bringing on new teams. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated. I’m looking for someone to run a weekly novice clinic at the high school.
For your game improvement, please visit our site for a list of our instructors and trainers.
Free Beginner clinic continues on the first Saturday of each month at 8:30am.

LWR High School: I was informed that crack repairs and resurfacing will start soon. Paddle saddles are being used now. This next up system works as long as players do not put in a place holder paddle. Lines will be painted behind court 5 for those wishing to bring a net.
We are excited to announce that we have partnered with Element3 Health to launch the Club Program, a Medicare Advantage benefit for eligible, enrolled member activity. To get started; https://element3health.com/lakewoodranchpickleball/LWR PB 3
Tip: It is important to not creep into the court after serving. A hard return near the baseline will force you back making the third shot harder to place.
