Important Update on Player Movement
May 31st, 2023 - Lake Country Pickleball Club
GROUPS and GROUP PLAY
As most of you are aware, some members of Groups 3.0 and 3.5 have been playing in league competition for the past month with game results and player ratings being recorded in Pickleball Brackets. The LCPC Executive is pleased with the early success of this play format in meeting the objective of achieving a rating for most - if not all - members, and providing close, competitive games to the majority of participants. Pickleball Brackets is, and will continue to be, on a learning curve in our club for the rest of the season.
As promised, we are now pleased to invite members from Groups 2.0 & 2.5 (combined) and Group 4.0, to sign up for competitive league play in Pickleball Brackets. Due to limited court availability, these sessions will be held for the next 4 weeks in June as follows:
Group 2.0 & 2.5 League - this combined group plays on Tuesdays starting June 6th from 5-7PM;
Group 4.0 League - plays on Thursdays starting June 8th from 5-7PM
PLAYER MOVEMENT - Player ratings continue to be the club’s number one issue. We hear far more feedback about ratings and who should be where than any other issue. We do have a plan to try and get the rating system right by making changes as required, but it will take time and patience from the membership. Please be advised that anyone wishing to move up to another group will have to have the appropriate rating in Pickleball Brackets.
PICKLEBALL BRACKETS - Executive member, Alan Hargreaves, has agreed to be the chair of the Pickleball Brackets Implementation Committee. Pickleball Brackets runs on a rather complex algorithm, but essentially, after 4 or 5 rounds of play, will start to give you an accurate rating against other members. Most importantly, what Pickleball Brackets will do, is group each player (in a round-robin format) with other players of similar ratings for each session. This should provide more evenly matched sessions and therefore, more competitive and enjoyable play. Rated play is not compulsory in LCPC, but sessions will run during normal group times. It will be a player’s individual choice to play in the "rated" or "social" format.
Players that want to move up, or play in rated Groups should continue reading below...
