2023 Rule Changes

1. No more prespinning the ball when serving

2. Replay for a Violation of the Service Motion or Ball Release Rules - violation may now result in a replay. If the referee is not certain whether a serving violation occurred, then the referee may call a replay. The referee may also call an immediate fault if the referee is certain that a serving violation occurred.

3. Wrong Score called - if the server or referee calls the wrong score, then any player may stop play at any time before the return of serve to correct the score. However, if any player stops play after the return of serve (or if any player stops play and the score was actually correct), then that player would have committed a fault.

4. Clothing Color - clothing cannot match the color of the ball.

5. Equipment Time Outs will not be counted towards a time out.


Congratulations to Monica Weeks and Leslie June for taking Gold at the Carpe Dinkum for Literacy 3.5 Womens Tournament


Due to numerous members wishing to level up to a 3.5 rating we have had to make a few changes to the organized play schedule. For the  remainder of November both Tuesday and Wednesday will be round robin play.  Mondays will remain paddles up. I will let you know of any changes for December once the December 3rd skills evaluation has been completed. Remember, this is your opportunity to have a voice in the level of play within our club. So thank you for your patience during the ratings process.  


Ratings Chair


Thanks Shelley, 



Tony Catrine is having lessons every Saturday at the pickleball courts.


2.0/2.5    from 10:30 - 11:30

3.0  from 11:30 - 12:30

3.5  from 12:30 - 1:30


The only exception is when the ratings are happening,  which is this Saturday, November the 12th and then on the first Saturday of every month after that. 


Tony could use some extra help from the 4.0's with the 3.5 group.  If you can do that please contact Tony Catrine.  


The correct way to apply to be rated at the Mission Royale Pickleball Club.


Go to the Mission Royale Pickleball Website

Fill out the drop down and push send.


This will be forwarded to the club secretary who will then forward it on to the ratings coordinators.


We have found that people are not turning off the light or locking the shed after using the equipment.  Can you please make sure you do that.

 Also, the following information is important to know during and after using the Lobster Ball Machine.


Firstly, please be careful when bringing the machine in and out of the shed.

While using the machine, if you notice the lights flashing, warning that the battery is nearly dead, it is time to turn the machine off and be done.  If you keep it running until the battery has totally died our charger is not strong enough  to recharge a totally dead battery.  



If these things don't happen we will have to find an alternate way of handling use of the equipment which likely is not as convenient as using it whenever you would like.  Thank you in advance.
