Pickleball Guest Policy

Guests may play twice for free and after that they need to buy a pass.  Please do not have them pay the NCC - MTPA rents the space and so the money needs to go to MPTA not NCC.
As members, you do not want to be subsidizing other players to keep your costs the same.  There are sheets on the door to the gym and at the entrance of NCC that inform folks on how to pay plus it’s on this website.

Thursday Night Tennis

Pickup Tennis from 6pm to dusk.  Great time to work on your skills.

Crowded Court Player Rotation

We've been blessed the last couple months with lots of players so it's time to institute a crowded court player rotation system to keep bench time to a minimum and is consistent among the sessions.  This is based on customs observed at other courts or published on the interwebs.  

When there 10 or fewer players continue current player rotation systems.

MTPA Provides Pickleball Sessions and Saves Players Money

New (and occasionally old) Pickleball players often wonder why they have to pay MTPA to play at the Nederland Community Center.  The literal bottom line is because MTPA negotiates a lower cost to play at the NCC.  Since Ken Adler brought the game to Nederland and, with the help of Charles Wood and others, painted the lines on the court and bought the nets and other equipment, a goal has been to keep the game affordable.  When Pickleball joined forces with the Nederland Tennis Association a few years ago that goal became formalized when MTPA signed the first rental agreement.
