Players must be familiar with the LW rules (see links in box on the right), court hours, and Brad's Boxes (below).

COURT LOCATIONS - The seven outdoor courts are located inside Gate 12, down the hill from the putting green. These courts are lit at night. The three indoor courts are in the gym at Clubhouse One. Use the entrance door located in the courtyard.

If the courts are busy and players are waiting, Brad's Boxes goes into effect to determine the order of play. On the outdoor courts, the orange flag is raised. Leave your court when your game is finished. If you are not sure how this works, ask another player.

  1. Doubles play takes priority over singles. Singles players already on the court may finish their game (15 mins max).
  2. You may only sign up when you are not playing on a court.
  3. Write your name legibly in an open box.
  4. If you want to sign up a team of 4, you must all be present on the patio/sign-up sheets to sign up.
  5. The next filled box of 4 players takes the next open court. X out your box before you go to the court.
  6. Play one game, then leave the court and sign up again.
  7. If you are looking for players at a specific skill level write the skill level (2.5, 3.0, etc.)
  8. [Outdoor courts] When the board is full, erase the x-ed boxes (only) and start again from the top.

  1. Abide by the International Federation of Pickleball (IFP) rules and regulations and the GRF operating procedures.
  2. Ensure your guests abide by the rules.
  3. Treat everyone with courtesy and respect. Be welcoming and helpful to newcomers and visitors.
  4. Respect the Laguna Woods Pickleball facilities and property. Keep them clean and in good working order.
