You should be available most weeks at the scheduled time to participate, but missing occasionally is not a problem.
The weekly schedule will be posted the day before play so you can see if you are scheduled and at what time.
You must notify the “League Captain” (which for now will be me) by email 2 days before league play if you will NOT be able to participate that week.
League play for a given day will consist of playing 3 games to 15 against players of similar ability level.  You will partner with each of the other players assigned to your court.  This will take about 1 hour.
On League Play days there will be open courts for open play.  How many on which day and at what time will be determined by how many participate in the leagues.
Adjustments will be made from time to time for those players who are either judged to be in too low or too high of a skill category based on performance within the league.
Players may enter or drop out of a league at any time.
Members of Columbia River Pickleball or Club Green Meadows will be able to participate in league play at no extra cost.  Non-members will be charged $2 per session of league play.
All league information and schedules will be posted on www.USAPA.ORG.  Go to
Ladder Leagues under tournaments and look for Columbia River.
