ROCC IntraClub Pickleball Flex League

Our goal is to begin competitive pickle play at our club, with the aim to get our players rated by their results rather than best guess.
 

What is Flex League?
It is a competitive match play format that allows you to schedule day and times that suit both parties. There is no cost to this league, but you both must be a member of the club to participate. This is an open division, which means teams can be both Male/Male, both Female/Female, or mixed Male/Female. Pick a partner you think will make you a strong team. This league consists of 3 rounds. Each round will last 30 days. There will be several rank levels.  Each rank level will consist of 3-5 teams, so each team will play all other teams in your same rank level in those 30 days.  At the end of each round the winner of each level will move up a level and the bottom will move down a level. Then we repeat the process. All matches will be played with 2 out of 3 sets first to 11. Each set won will be worth 1pt, each match played with be worth 1pt. The standings will be determined by most points won and bottom will be least points won. So in other words play all your matches and win all the sets you can.

Scoring example: 
Team A beats team B, 2 – 0, then team A gets 3 points (1 point for playing match + 2 points for winning 2 sets) & team B gets 1 point just for playing match. 
Team A beats team B, 2 – 1, then team A gets 3 points (1 point for playing match + 2 points for winning 2 sets) & team B gets 2 points (1 for winning 1 set & 1 for playing match)
 
If you are late to the party after each 30 days we will take new teams where I can accommodate them while keeping the integrity of the event. This is a great way to get competitive match practice while still at your own club and on your schedule.


Please remember to self-rate when signing up!
Open Doubles Division (Fixed partner and you must sign up with a partner)
