THIS IS AN INVITATIONAL ONLY PICKLEBALL GROUP. Members must be recommended/invited to tryout and participate. This is for High Advanced, Competitive Tournament Players. See Minimum Requirements and Program info below.
• HOST Facility is Camp Curiosity in Doylestown, PA, with additional area court facilities to be added soon.
• Candidates must be invited by meetup administrators and recommended by a current, active member.
• Candidate possesses a USAPA Player Rating of 4.0 or Higher. This is not pro-rated consideration by sex or age. You need to be able to play above 4.0 regardless.
• This means all participants must be members of the USAPA. $20/year. Go get one if you haven't already. Make sure you turn on the feature in your profile to show your rating/ranking.
• Consideration may be given to emerging competitive players who's rating has not caught up with their current level of play, via recent tournament wins, tryout/provisional invites, Ladder play results, Evaluation and group member feedback.
• Candidate must currently and actively participate in local, regional and/or national level tournaments. Expectation is for this group to be an on-going training and practice group for tournament competitive play.
• Lastly, and critical to the development of all area and regional pickleball players, • We ask that you also play 1x per month with the DPC group to assist lower level players. We have many days/times for you to be able to fit this in. Most of us already do this and recognized that others did it for us when we first started.
Programming and Play Opportunities to be Planned:
• Regular 11pt doubles AND singles games for most sessions
• King/Queen of the Hill, round robin and challenge court competitions from time to time to keep the training and development focus
• Opportunity to create specific Training/Drills only sessions for partner, team and ball machine (YUP!, we have a ball machine.) practice
