Central Ohio Pickleball League

MONDAY,

Another Hot Day for Week 2

It was another hot day yesterday. Hopefully we get some relief with the temperatures for this coming Sunday.

There were some issues and there will likely continue to be issues over the coming weeks as we progress through this inaugural season together. One team with two Advanced Beginner teams ended up playing the wrong teams on Sunday. This will cause another schedule change but not for this coming Sunday (June 20).

The problem is that it is really hard to create another schedule after three matches have already been locked in. We spent most of the day on this using all of the Excel knowledge we knew to visualize and count the match-ups. The new schedule will be posted tomorrow morning on PickeballZone. It is likely that at least one team will play the same team twice. The Intermediate/+ schedule will not be affected but the Home/Away matches may change.

Please always refer to the online schedule on your team report on PickleballZone. The reason for always using the online schedules is that people tend to refer to older printed schedules, rather than putting the newer schedules on their refrigerators..

There was a court default on Sunday but it was a "good" default. The club without enough players brought in a pro on Court 3 so everyone still got to play. That was the correct court to play the pro (so no courts below the default had to be defaulted) and the scores were reflected as 0-0, 0-0.

Today's featured team is Scarborough Coed Intermediate/+. Their team captains are Murali Venkataraman and Gregg Nigl. Scarborough started league match play with a really close win against New Albany Coed Intermediate/+. Two of the matches needed "best two out of three" games.

Scarborough provided their own team photo to PBZ. Please email a photo of your own team as soon as you can so your team can be recognized.

On to week three!

And Away We Go..

Congratulations to everyone who played yesterday. You played during the first weekend of the Central Ohio Adult Summer Pickleball League. This is something that you can tell your grandchildren about some day. In fact, why wait? Many of you can just text them now..

While there are many tasks left to do, the creation of this league was a sprint and it was done in just four short months. The long list of tasks done included: domain purchase, logo creation, software development, legal work, rule creation, web hosting setup, schedule creation, and the interactions with club directors and team captains. All of this was done as the platform tennis season wrapped up in March (see PlatformTennisZone.com) and during the Ohio boys high school tennis season that just finished last weekend (see OhioTennisZone.com).

Special thanks to New Albany's Kristin Reed, Brookside's Rob Postma, and Scarborough's Bob Hilborn for their assistance in the advisory group as issues were initially discussed in early February.

Special thanks also go to the club representatives who rounded up players and arranged for courts. They include: Kristin Reed, Rob Postma, Wedgewood's Wendy Gibbons, Kinsale's Jason Homorody, The Lakes' Michelle Jarrett, Scarborough's Jacqueline Boggs, and Worthington Hill's and The Country Club at Muirfield Village's Abby Hand. The above was made even more challenging since the construction of many courts were delayed due to weather and other reasons. Since many clubs just opened for the season, it was difficult to identify players.

It was an extremely hot day yesterday and hopefully everyone stayed hydrated. While the plan was for everyone to play for at least one and a half hours, the steamy conditions may have affected those plans.

Today's featured team is Kinsale Intermediate/+. The captains are Michael Drew and Craig Richardson. More player photos will be added soon.

New Summer Pickleball League

It is time for something new.. Central Ohio pickleballers are a very active group of people and a common question that many clubs and facilities are hearing is "Why isn't there a skill-based league that is similar to what is offered for summer tennis and platform tennis?". Well, there is now.

During the inaugural season, the league will consist of coed teams who compete on Sunday afternoons. The league will be skill-based with teams in the Advanced Beginners and Intermediate / Intermediate + categories.

Any adult group may participate just as they do in summer tennis, but the roll-out will be measured this year. The teams expected to compete this summer include: New Albany Country Club, Worthington Hills Country Club, The Country Club at Muirfield Village, Brookside Golf & Country Club, Scarborough East, Kinsale Golf and Fitness, Lakes Golf & Country Club, and Wedgewood Golf & Country Club.

The season runs from June 6 to August 1 (with playoffs for the top teams on August 8). The cost per player is $25, but just $20 when signing up as a couple. (This is even the case when couples are not playing on the same team.)

Test data is always required when launching web sites and "blank" faces were used along with monotonist last names for many of the clubs. The ZZZ Test Club was created for demonstration purposes and it will also be used to enable captains to practice entering match results.

Those who are parents or grandparents of high school tennis players may notice the resemblance of PickleballZone with OhioTennisZone. That is because the two are offered by the same company. Now pickleball players can enjoy the same software as the kids! Make sure that your kids / grandchildren follow your progress on PBZ just as you do with the high school players.
