If you are interested in finding other Red’s pickleball players at your own level/age group, we have now started a player’s list where you can sign up and allow other “pickleballers” to contact you for a pick up game or create a regular playing group.
The players list is located at the front desk at Red’s and will be updated continuously as more players sign up. Please ask for the players list when you get to Reds and snap a picture of it with your phone so you can have it with you at all times for potential playing partners.
We suggest to communicate through text messages as a first choice and only call if a lengthier conversation is needed. Also please check the appropriate box for your age group and playing level. If you know your rating please list it in the appropriate box.
Have A Great Pickleball Day!
