2021 Sky Fitness Fall Pickleball Program
The Fall group lesson program at Sky Fitness will be offering (2) ten-week session starting October 4th, 2021.(No classes/leagues for four weeks). The second session will run January 17th thru March 27th. Privates, semi-privates, P+3 and P+4 will be offered the entire year.
Intro To Pickleball (Beginner)
This class is for those that have never played Pickleball before or who have very limited experience. The class will focus on Pickleball basics such as forehand and backhand shots, serving and court positioning. Players will also learn scoring and rules of the game through drills and playing time. The slower pace of this class will give players the opportunity to develop the skills needed to play this fun and energetic game. All classes will be 1.5 hours; one hour of instruction and a half hour of play.
Pro + 3 or 4
This is a great drill session with the pro of your choice with match play strategy session; the Pro will offer suggestions for each student’s game, playing in when necessary; a great time to have the Pro tailor the lesson to your specific needs.
We will be offering organized league play for those wishing to have a set game each week. Listed below are the leagues that will be offered:
Round Robin Leagues
This league will be set up where all players will play with and against all players in their league; there will be 3 rounds (40 minutes each round); players will switch partners and opponents every 40 minutes. This is a great way to meet and play with other players. A fun experience for all players.
Davis Cup Team Men’s League
Davis Cup Team will be played 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday and 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. on Thursday with 30 players drafted on two (2) teams of 15 players. We will ask two club members to be captains and they will do the weekly lineups accordingly to strength; courts 1 – 5. Only 10 players will play each week from each team; most players will average seven (7) dates and will only be charged for 7 weeks (pre-paid). The reason for this is the challenge with finding subs. Having extra players on each team (5 per team) will allow the team captain to pull from the team rosters when players cancel at the last minute.
Fee for 7 weeks for full members is $16; $19 for pball members; captains will not be charged league fee.
Each week scores will be calculated; there will be a UPM staff member on all dates.
This league will be offered to 3 divisions (3.0, 3.5 and 4.0); all doubles teams can be gender or mixed; you must stay with your partner the duration of the league. Matches will be arranged on their own time and set up with the on-line booking system. You must book 90 minutes for warm up and three (3) games to 15; win by one. The players will pay their own court fees and an administrative fee of $35 per person. Balls are provided by the players, or teaching balls can be provided. Scores will be reported to Ken/Dana and team standings will be emailed with the results.
