LPA Sign up, Ladder, and League Information

Competitive pickleball means teamwork.
What is the Landings Pickleball Association:
It is a DUPR based organization for players of any level that want competition against others of equal ability. It is for those who want to improve their game. There is a Spring and a Fall League. In between, there is weekly Ladder competition.
How to sign up:
Sign up forms are in the Franklin Creek Club House or you can print the form in the LPA Sign Up Form section.

Who can join, how much is the cost:

Any Athletic or Full Golf member that is in good standing may join.

A DUPR rating is not necessary to join. You can establish one later.

The annual membership fee is $30. Check made out to Landings Pickleball Association or bring cash to Thursday night. Join August or after, $15 charge for the balance of that year.

It is a member organization that operates within the guidelines of The Landings Golf & Athletic Club.

Play Dates:

The LPA Ladder events are on Thursday nights. 6:00 - 8:00.

During the league, the Premier and Challenger Divisions will play on Thursday and the Major Division on Monday.

Ladder Night Rules:
( This is a weekly sign up event. Sign up is in the LPA Events drop down box)
a) Players are grouped per court by DUPR ratings.
b) Sign up is Friday thru Tuesday at 5:00 for the upcoming Thursday
c) Emails are sent out with updates showing the number of players who have signed up.
d) The full list of players (extras or subs if there are any) are sent Wednesday. This is to give time to adjust and try to find players if necessary.
e) There is no first to sign up, last to sign up scenario for any part of the Ladder. Players are grouped by DUPR rating. In all aspects, ensuring competitive play will always be the overriding determination on who plays that week.
f) If there is an odd number, we will send out a message to see if we can get to an even number. If an even number is not available, the players selected will be those that ensure the most competitive play. 
g) If two or more players have the same rating and it means one or more would have to move down, the one or ones with the least number of games in DUPR will go down.
h) If after the sign up period is over a player has to withdraw, it affects all the players assigned to his or her court. It is in everyone's best interest on that court to pitch in and help to find a replacement. The LPA will send out an email to those we know of that have played in the ladder previously.
The game:
a) All games to 11 win by 2 or if necessary up to 15 win by 1.
b) The ladder is divided into 2 rounds.
c) The first round ends with either with 3 games completed or at 7:30.  At that time, if a game is still being played, regardless of the score, the game is over.
d) Players move up, down, or stay put on their court by the number of points attained.
e) If there is a tie in the number of points between players. 
   1) Rally scoring. A choice - singes game to 5 or doubles game to 3. 
   2) If 3 players are tied, by drawing, one will be eliminated. The 2 remaining will
