PICKLBALL CLUB SHOOTOUTS
The Pickleball club is providing a scheduled series of events designed to give ALL players an opportunity to enjoy organized play time with players of similar skill capabilities. The format for these events is call a SHOOTOUT. Two SHOOTOUTs are held each month. One the “All Club Shootout” is for all members on the 2nd Saturday of every month and the second is the “C/D Shootout” for only C and D rated players on the 4th Saturday of every month. Each session is a new competition and a chance to play with different players. No records are kept by the club regarding your performance in a SHOOTOUT.
