Upcoming Pickleball Opportunities at Wessen Indoor Tennis:
Open Drop-In Play: Don’t have a regular game? Join us for Drop-In play on your own schedule. Come when you like, leave when you must during Open Play hours. When Drop-In players finish their game, they’ll leave the court, so that waiting players can take their turn to play. Next-up protocols will be in place to determine who takes the open court.
Specific Drop-In hours will be designated for Beginners Only or for Competitive Players only, so that players can find a comfortable level of play on any given day. Drop-In sessions will be held for two or three hours per skill level every day, with starting times varying by day. A Drop-In fee of $5 will admit a player to the complete session.
- Competitive Drop-In: Monday, Wednesday, Friday at 8:00 am; Tuesday at 10 am, Thursday at 11 am
- Beginner Drop-In Tuesday and Thursday at 8:00 am; Monday and Friday at 11 am, Wednesday at 10 am
Reserved Time: Groups of players may reserve court time for their exclusive and continuous use in one-hour blocks between 8:00 am and 2:00 pm every day by registering at least one day in advance. Registration may be made online at the Wessen Indoor Tennis website. Hourly reservation rates of $20 per hour per court will apply.
- Monday to Friday 8:00 am to 3:00 pm
Round Robin League Play: Here’s your opportunity to meet new players and test your growing pickleball skills. A weekly league of round-robin play will introduce beginning players to organized competition in a pressure-free environment. Each court will play three games, so players will partner with and against their court-mates. The Round Robin league will be held on the same weekday and time every week of each seven-week Pickleball Session. The number of courts for the league will depend on the number of players who register for the session. The fee will be $70 per person for the seven-week league. Registration will be on a first-come, first served basis until an appropriate number of players (multiple of four) is achieved.
Competitive Ladder League: Experienced players with a taste for competition can join a weekly Ladder League — one for men and one for women. Week one of competition will determine starting positions from the lowest to the highest court. Each week one player from each court will move to the next higher court or the next lower court depending on cumulative points scored in play with each court-mate as a partner. Highest score moves up; lowest cumulative score moves down. A great way to assess your progress as a pickleball player. The fee for the Ladder League will be $70 for the seven weeks of competition. Online registration is required on a first-come, first-served basis until appropriate participation is reached.
