Weekly round-robin play consisting of one set partnered with each other player on your assigned court.
Competitive compatibility emphasized. Variety considered. Most will play with 30+ different players throughout the season. One should expect to be the best on the court 25%, the worst 25% and in the middle 50%. Pairings explained.
Players selecting the "anytime" option for their start time will be guaranteed a spot for the week.
Players can opt to play "2x" for the week. Though only one spot is guaranteed, historically about 80% of the extra sessions have been granted.

This club requires players to wear all-white clothing. Players will be able to opt out of that site if they cannot meet the requirement.
This will be the primary site for North League play. This private club has 6 dedicated lighted courts. We will six for three time slots (18 courts).
Losantiville Country Club

Simple "In or Out?" Reply Each Week
Emails link to an "In or Out?" form that lets you indicate availability, time & geography needs for the week. Players have until Noon the day before league night to reply. Text reminders are sent to all players who haven't responded the morning of the day before league play.
Formal Play & Scheduling
Court results, standings and "pairings" points are formally tracked and used to create weekly court pairings. Scheduling is formal with specific time slots & pairings rotations. Schedules are distributed via email and updated on our website. Players can cancel for emergencies and other reasons outlined in Procedures & Rules, but are otherwise expected to show up on time once they have opted "in" for the night.
Two Seasons (Multiple Sessions)
There are two half-year Platform Tennis leagues - Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer. The two half-year Pickleball leagues are Summer and Indoor. Each consists of numerous sessions and options. There is one unified winner of each half-year league for overall champion, top female and Ironman (woman).
Our format does not require subs. Simply opt "out" when you know you will be unavailable for the week or contact us as soon as you know you can't make a scheduled time.
