Can-Am Fun, Fun, Fun

We have watched the enthusiasm and excitement for years when Softball did their annual CanAM event. This season, we have been invited to join the fun.
Other clubs and activities will be participating to make it a whole week of fun!

Get your Stars and Stripes or your Maple Leaf apparel ready and cheer on the players as they engage in matches using the MLP format and scoring. We will have two divisions on each team; 65 and under and over 65; women’s doubles, men’s doubles and mixed doubles. Captains Maurice Parobec/Deb Henwood for the Canadians and Dex Decker/Chris Mayberry for the USA will choose their teams from our top players.

The schedule for the week is below. Softball is selling shirts and dance tickets at all their games Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Our event is Saturday at 3pm. The Park will have beverages for sale and we will have an informal Happy Hour at the Sports Pavilion following the contest. Please bring snacks to share, purchase a beverage and enjoy the camaraderie. No BYOB, please. Music will be provided by Mike Cobb.

Important Update

Changes to Club Rating Naming

Dear Members,

The Palm Creek Pickleball Club Board has reached a collective decision to streamline and standardize our rating naming system for greater clarity and simplicity within our community.

Key Details:

• Unification of Naming:
We have consolidated the distinctions of 'Palm' and 'Creek' into our existing first-level numeric fractional values, establishing a unified naming based solely on numeric fractional values from 2.0 to 5.0.

Specifically, the adjustment will maintain the current first-level rating for 'Creek' as is, while 'Palm' will be translated as an additional 0.25 added to the first-level rating to ensure a unified rating scale. For instance, a rating of 3.5 Creek would remain as 3.5, and a rating of 3.5 Palm would be adjusted to 3.75 under the unified system.

For additional clarity, we've provided a table below that shows the correspondence between our existing rating names and their future counterparts

• Effective Date:
These changes will take effect from January 1st, 2024, and will be reflected in our January-March schedule.

Highlights of the Decision:

1. Simplification and Consistency:
The integration of 'Palm' and 'Creek' into numeric values aims to simplify the naming for better clarity among our members.

2. Efficient Evaluation:
This unified naming streamlines evaluations, making it easier to compare and manage skill levels among our members.

3. Future Scalability:
The unified naming ensures scalability and easier management for potential group expansions.

This decision has been unanimously approved by the Board and will be implemented accordingly. All Wild Apricot Groups representing our current ratings will be updated to align with the new unified naming.

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding in this decision, which aligns with our commitment to bettering our club's operations and member experiences.

Sincerely,

The Palm Creek Pickleball Club Board

19 - Pickleball Rules Corner : by Sandy Smith - Certified Ref.

Code of Ethics for Line Calling. Pickleball is played according to specific rules. It also requires a code of ethics for line-calling responsibilities when performed by players. A few of these are:

6.C.6. Players shall not call a ball "out" unless they can clearly see a space between the line and the ball as it hits the ground.

6.C.7. All "out" calls must be made prior to the ball being hit by the opponent or before the ball becomes dead.

6.C.8. In doubles play, if one player calls the ball "out" and the partner calls it "in" then doubt exists and the team's call will be "in." Any player may appeal a call to the referee. If the referee did not see the ball, the ball is considered in.

20 - Good Sportsmanship

With good sportsmanship we all win, on and off the court. Let's keep the game fun, the smiles big and the high-fives flying!

Let's sprinkle some kindness, dash it with respect and serve up a big slice of fair play!

Let's keep the Palm Creek Pickleball spirit alive by embracing good sportsmanship. Remember it's not just about winning, but how we play the game.

Respect, fairness and encouragement makes our community stronger. Let's play and compete with honor, let's support each other every step of the way!

Go Go Go...Good sportsmanship - Grace - Gratitude!

Did you know there is an official way to call the score in order to start a pickleball game? Per the Official USA Pickleball Rulebook:

4.J. Calling the Score in Doubles Matches. The score is called as three numbers in doubles matches. The proper sequence for calling the score is: serving team's score - receiving team's score - the server number (one or two), (e.g., "zero-one-one"). To start each game, the score will be called as "zero-zero-two."​​​​​​

Professor Drop Shot's

Court Etiquette Reminders

When you need to cross a court with a game in progress, wait until there is a break in play before asking to cross the court. Use the outer gates to enter a court when possible.

When you leave a court: Return ball to the sleeve, close the gate.

Profanity is a no-no.

No bikes in the center hallway.

NO items ( except water bottles) inside the courts.

Professor Drop Shot says....

Success is not final;

Failure is not fatal;

It is the courage to continue that counts.
