Registration Information

Open spring registration will be held the month of January 2024. Registration will be accepted online at Spring fees (early bird pricing) will be as follows:

*Paddles will be available to rent to participants who do not have them. This will be offered for an additional cost or may require a deposit.

Season Overview

Season Overview
The pickleball season runs from the beginning of May through mid-June. The schedule will be oriented so that participants who are signed up with another spring sport can do both.

Practices take place once per week with most games occurring on the weekend. Days and times will become more firm once we have a better idea on registration numbers. Please note that while we’d love to have a schedule that fits into everyone’s desired day/time, we are subject to the availability of city/school courts.

Based on numbers, the participants will be grouped by skill level and have a chance to compete in a singles and doubles environment. We’d like to offer a team pickleball format, but the emphasis will be on teaching the fundamentals and getting all participants to the point of comfort in match play by the end of the season.

Every participant will receive a Mudsock Pickleball shirt as part of their registration. Participants should attend practices/games with athletic shoes and clothing. Participants will be encouraged to wear their Mudsock Pickleball shirts on "match" day. 

Frequently Asked Questions

What is pickleball?
A racquet based game that is played on a level court with short-handled paddles and a perforated plastic ball volleyed over a low net by two players or pairs of players. Imagine a perfectly designed sport that marries tennis and table tennis into a fast-paced, highly addictive game.

Who are the coaches?
We rely on parent/guardian volunteers, like other Mudsock Youth Athletics leagues. We invite parents/guardians who already play pickleball to sign up to be a coach. While our board is comprised of many individuals who love to play, we welcome the assistance and experience of all ages and skills.

Do you take requests?
You may add a request in the comments section of your online registration form at Please note, we do not guarantee requests.

My participant doesn’t fall within the age group, can they still play?
Please reach out to [email protected] for more information on this. While we’d love to accept players of all ages, we want to ensure that there are enough coaches and that a competitive balance is maintained.
