Outdoor Pickleball Courts

Pickleball Play

Drop-In Play

Courts are available for use on a drop-in basis, first-come, first-served.  This play is used when there are enough available courts so no one is waiting or there is no reservation on the court.

Pickleball Rotation Play

When there are enough users on the court to warrant a wait or sign-up, DPR will use organized play where players line their paddles up on the fence (Next Up Sign). Starting on the left, the first four paddles are next in line to play when a court becomes available.

  • Place your paddle in the  Paddle Rack to indicate who plays next.
  • The NEXT UP marker on the Paddle Rack indicates who plays the next game.
  • When it’s your turn, quickly retrieve your paddle and go to the open court.
  • Relinquish your court after one game to 11 with a win by two or 15 minutes if not playing a game.   
  • To play another game, place your paddle in the next available slot in the Paddle Rack.
  • Any player can slide the NEXT UP indicator to the next group of paddles.  
  • People who want to play together may put their paddles together in the next available four slots in the Paddle Rack.  You must wait until the other slots ahead of you are filled before you can play your game.

The Next Up sign is only located at Lubber Run Community Center and Walter Reed Community Center Tennis Courts.  Please use the same or similar method at our other courts.
