Rules for 2024 Winter Season

The Treasure Coast Pickleball League is a competitive league between pickleball facilities and communities on the Treasure Coast. In addition to our league rules, we also use the USA Pickleball Rules to guide us. Here is the link to the USA Pickleball Rules

Dates:

Matches are to begin the week of January 8th, 2024 and will run through mid March 2024. Playoffs will take place tentatively on the weekend of March 11th, 2024.

Pricing:

  • $45 per player

Length:

  • 8 weeks of play followed by the Finals.

Ratings & Divisions:

  • New players that have not played in the league will be self-rated using their USAPA Tournament Player Rating (UTPR) or Dreamland Universal Pickleball Rating (DUPR) if available. If a player is not listed in the UTPR or DUPR directory, their team captain will determine the player’s rating based on the skill level the player has entered when playing in unsanctioned tournaments. If neither of these apply to a player, then the self-rating will be the division skill level.
  • A player may "play up" into a higer division then their rating shows, however playing down into a lower division (sandbagging) is absolutely not allowed.
  • A player may only enter one division. However you may be a sub player in another division.
  • If for some reason you believe your rating to be higher then your actual division, please reach out to the League commisioner to have this evaluated and decided on a case-by-case basis.
  • Player’s ratings to determine which division they are eligible to play in will follow the below process. All divisions encompass a range of skill levels. The ranges are as follows:

2.5 Division – skill range 2.500 through 2.999

3.0 Division – skill range 3.000 through 3.499

3.5 Division – skill range 3.500 through 3.999

4.0+ Division – skill range of 4.000 and above

  • Once league play has begun, as scores are entered, each matchups scores will be added to DUPR and DUPR will update accordingly.

Format:

  • A team consists of a minimum of 4 players - 2 men & 2 women minimum. With a maximum of 8 players.
  • Matches will consist of 1 Men’s doubles, 1 Women’s doubles and 2 Mixed doubles.
  • The same team members playing Men’s and Women’s Doubles are allowed to play in the Mixed Doubles matches once both Men’s & Women’s matches are complete.
  • Captains will contact each other 1 week in advance to confirm match details.
  • Captains may re-schedule to another day/time if both teams agree.
  • Rain make-ups are to be arranged by the captains and noted on the league site.

Scoring:

  • Men’s, Women’s, and Mixed Doubles are played 2 out of 3 games. Games are scored first to 11 pts winning by 2 pts. If the score reaches 14-14 in any match, the winner of the next point wins. In that scenario the first team with 15 points will win.
  • The order of play is 1 Men’s and 1 Women’s match followed by both Mixed Doubles matches.

Standings:

  • Calculated by total number of Team Wins/Losses
  • In the event of a tie, standing will be decided by the following in the order listed: percent least individual matches lost, percent least games lost, percent least points lost.

Playoffs:

  • At end of the regular season, the top 4 (four) teams for each division will enter into a random draw single elimation playoff bracket.

The First Server and Sides determination:

The first server of the first game is determined by a "coin toss". The winner of the "coin toss" gets to choose between side (starting side) or serve. The team that serves first in game one will be the receiver of the first serve in game two. Sides are also switched for game two. For game three, if needed, the first server will be the first serving team from game one. Sides are also switched back to the way they were at the start of game one. When either team reaches 6 points, the sides are switched during the third game and played out that way until a winner is determined.

Timeouts & Coaching during breaks:

Each team will be entitled to 2 timeouts per game. Timeouts are for 1 minute maximum. Coaching is allowed during timeouts.

Substitute Players:

  • A substitute player must pay a league fee of $25.
  • Players are allowed to sub up to a higher division only. No subbing down is allowed under any circumstances.
  • A substitute player may only play up to 3 (three) weeks in a season and is not eligible to play in the playoffs.

Replacement Players:

  • If a regular roster player is injured and cannot continue to play the balance of the season (and verified by a doctor’s note) you can replace this player. The replacement player will need to play out this roster position for the balance of the season. The injured player will not be able to play in any more matches during a season in which they have been replaced.
  • A replacement player must pay a league fee of $25.
  • Player must be replaced with a player that is eligible to play in the division.

Match Lineups:

  • Lineups need to be completed before being exchanged with the opposing captain. Lineups must be exchanged with the opposing captain prior to start of match play. Both captains should arrive at the match with a lineup printed out from the system.

Balls:

The official ball used will be the Franklin X-40

Scheduling:

  • Please note the schedule (to be completed by January 4th, 2024) and notify the league coordinator of any conflicts asap.
  • Bye on the schedule means that you have the week off.
  • Home Team captains are responsible for entering scores following their matches.
  • Matches are allowed to be played on a different day of the week as long as both captains agree. The match must be played by Sunday of the week that the match is scheduled for, and the score entered by end of day Sunday. If not, both teams will have a forfeit for that week’s play.
