New PICKLRZ Pickleball League

The PICKLRZ Pickleball League consists of 16 teams comprised of 2 males and 2 females and will compete for bragging rights and valuable prizes.

Format

The 16 teams will be divided into 2 divisions, East and West. Teams will compete in 7, doubles matches within their division in a round robin fashion. Every team will play every other team within their division. Each match will be comprised of 6 games, including 1 men’s, 1 women’s and 4 mixed.

Players

  • Male 1 (M1)
  • Male 2 (M2)
  • Woman 1 (W1)
  • Woman 2 (W2)

Games

  • M1 & M2
  • W1 & W2
  • M1 & W1
  • M2 & W2
  • M1 & W2
  • M2 & W1

Games will utilize traditional scoring to 11 and must be won by 2. The team who wins the most games wins the match.

Ties will be resolved by point differentiation during all 6 games within the match, where point differentiation equals points for minus points against. The team with the higher point differentiation wins the match.

After all 7 matches have been played, the team in each division who wins the most matches will be the division champion. Any ties will be resolved by point differentiation over the 9 matches.

Division champions will then play each other in the PICKLRZ Pickleball League Championship, using the same rules used in the division matches.

Teams

Below are the logos for the teams. The team captain (you?) chooses the team and will then manage the team for 1 season (7 matches and 1 championship) and will be responsible for fielding a team of 2 males and 2 females for each match. If the team can’t field a team of 2 males and 2 females, the match will be forfeited to the other team.

We recommend having backups for each player in case someone can’t play. There’s no limit to the number of players on your team, but you must submit a roster of 2 males and 2 females 24 hours before each match. Substitutes can be made during a match, due to player injury. Other substitutes cannot be made during a match. Players can play for more than one team but not at the same time.

Prizes

Each team winning their division will receive 4 Cheetah Predion E16 Raw pickleball paddles ($600 value). The team winning the PICKLRZ Pickleball League Championship will receive 4 $100 PICKLRZ digital gift cards.

Costs

The captain is responsible for reserving the team for each season. The $100 reservation fee includes 4 player’s fees for all 7 matches and the championship.
